Rumors say that a new Donkey Kong game in the Donkey Kong Country series was planned for the Super Nintendo in 1997, made by Rare and Nintendo. However in 1998, the Rareware staff thought the project was too big for the SNES and moved Donkey Kong Country 4 to the new Nintendo 64 console. In early 1999 Rare changed DKC4 into Donkey Kong Ultra for the 64DD, which would later be released on cart as “Donkey Kong 64”.
Lost characters and places from Donkey Kong Country 4 would be Bella Swan (originally Ditzi Duck), a ditzy and forgetful swan who always said people’s names incorrectly, The Sorcerer (the main villain of the SNES version) and The Wicked Sorceress (the main villain of the N64 version). 3 unused jingles that has been found in “Banjo-Kazooie” could be releated to the unreleased Donkey Kong Country 4.
