The DK BK connection

for those who haven't noticed, check the latest RWP update. now, with that done, speculation time.

the ice key does make sense in a troff and scoff room, seeing as they turn a key each time in a locked door, so maybe rare had a different layout for their room and instead of feeding them bananas you just give them the ice key? I've also though about one other thing... the ice key is from BK, so would it be possible that rare was planning on making one world in BK and one in DK where you swapped the characters?

*thinks hard* do the colours of each SNS egg correspond to each of the DK characters?

diddy - red
lanky - cyan
donkey kong - yellow
tiny - purple/pink (?)
chunky - green

the only one missing is dark blue, which presumably could be for banjo.

I never thought of the eggs like that before...

Wasn't there a rumour or summat about Rare wanting to actually have a connection between the three games... but then thougt it was stupid cause you'd have to have all three...

Is it possible that sns still exists? Could there be something hidden deep inside DK? Many mumbo's pictures where added after sns was dropped...

I just read the news and I must say that this is the most startling discovery that has happened to the RWP in years! Through the years my patience ran out for SNS, and i completely gave up on ever hoping to see SNS realized. But with this new discovery, their seems to be a renewed spark of interest inside of me and i'm sure inside us all. Their evidence is so flawless that it's incredible! Never before have I seen such a well fortified theory in banjo land. I can't even find one thing to disagree with. And i'm sure everyone has an idea of what this could lead to... I'm still not going to hold my breath, but I have faith in these guys. I'm sure they will come up with something. They always do. Even as of late, they have made several startling discoveries that have been overlooked through the years. With their experience, who knows what untold secrets they could uncover... How exciting!!!

My theory: Conker's 12 Tales was at least partially involved in SnS, until it mutated into BFD.:o

Okay, maybe not the most novel or optimistic theory, but after reading up on the DK-BK connection it crossed my mind as a distinct possibility.

That was some interesting news. Just the thought of DK64 really being involved in all of this is interesting... Though I don't have any theories on it yet, I'm sure I'll begin to think of some soon enough.

Well... maybe there was a rumour... But really, SnS isn't needed to beat any of the games so it isn't wrong for them to do something like that between 3 games. But it is kind of silly...

Very well done article, very well done. Even though some of it was rehashed content that was revealed/discovered before (DK picture in BK, etc.), it was nice to see everything in one place, with additional tidbits.

And, in the spirit of the BK-DK64 connection atmosphere, I bring you two old sequences of mine...

http://www.pagerealm.com/igmidi/secrets.mid

http://www.pagerealm.com/igmidi/dk64_boss_open.mid

I may re-do the 2nd one, because my source for that was a crap quality recording on a tape recorder. You may have to copy and paste the URLs to hear the songs.

Gah...bastards deleted 'em.

MM: makes sense, although, as always, I still find it odd that they decided on DK64 first instead of BT, when we were told to wait for BT. I still feel cheated.

Kind of. It makes some sense. But really, how does it help knowing(or thinking) that they correspond with one another?

like I posted, it could have been that we swopped characters for a level or so or something to that degree. it can only aid in speculation I guess, but, seeing as SNS was dropped, that's all we can do except wait for BK:GR.

BK - 6/30/98
DK64 - 11/23/99
BT - 11/20/00

If my memory serves me right.

I thought so, that would make sense. but, even so, they had so much time in between each project, the least they could've done is rehash them. it looks like rare was just teasing us with the SNS items in BT, when they could've at least rehashed the project between DK and BT or BK and BT.
