Is Diddy Kong Racing 2 a Good Idea?

From GamesReviews:

"Last week, rumors surfaced on the Internet from industry insider Kevin Callahan that Diddy Kong Racing 2 was a real thing, and that it was currently in development for the Nintendo Wii U.

"There are a few questions which need to be answered: do we need a Diddy Kong Racing sequel, and how can it be successful?"

Man, if they pulled it off right I would absolutely love a second one.

I also would love a Diddy Kong Racing, or as I've said before, Mario Kart would work great as a spiritual successor. After Mario Kart 8 what can they do anyways? They already did antigravity, so I would love it if they just skin Diddy Kong Racing as Mario Kart and make it.

Also how awesome would it be to have Diddy Kong Racing tracks with antigravity, and classic Mario Kart tracks redesigned with Planes and Hovers in mind.

I don't know, but for me it makes sense and I think it would be awesome.

The sequel they had planed for GameCube before MS bought Rare,had you racing on the back's on animals like the rhino and ostrich from DK Country.So I hope it's that.If you Google it you will find pic's and maybe even some video.

What I really enjoyed about DKR was the single player because you weren't just racing the whole time. You had a hub world where you had different tasks to do as well as the racing. So yes I think a sequel would be great!

I would love to see a DKR2. It was such a fun game and I really enjoyed the adventure mode which although basic added to it. It's one of the main reason why I like it better than Mario Kart. I also enjoyed the different vehicles and the music was awesome! The Dino challenges, silver coins, WizPig, it was all great.
I really do hope this rumor has substance to it cause I'd be first in line to buy Diddy Kong Racing 2.

Let me be clear, if it's not made or supervised by Retro in any kind of way, then I don't have any problem with the development of a sequel.

Retro should, at the very least, make another 3D Donkey Kong game, a racing game is not ambicious enough for me, even if DKR was very special because you could do more than just racing.

It's a good idea because so far we've only had one Kart game per gen by Nintendo and that's been Mario Kart. Cyling between Diddy Kong and Mario Kart will give us more Kart racing goodness.

Only thing they have to worry about is how they separate the titles to make them feel completely different from each other.
