Story

The backstory is about a competition for others to find the Lost World first, and that the first one to find it will have a chance of fame and fortune. Two of the participants were Donkey Kong and Diddy, who had left Dixie to babysit Kiddy. Dixie wanted to prove that she was good enough to find the Lost World, so she and Kiddy go on an adventure to find it. Meanwhile, Baron K. Roolenstein and the Kremlings return to search for the Lost World as well.
