Cancelled sequel

A sequel to this game, entitled Jazz Jackrabbit 3D was to be released sometime in 2000. However, since Epic was unable to find a publisher, the project was cancelled.

Extra Games

The full UK CD version of this game installs as version 1.21. Also on the CD is a folder called 'Shareware' which contains shareware versions of the following games:

Lori Jackrabbit

In the ending cutscene of Jazz Jackrabbit 2, there is a bucktoothed female rabbit who Spaz Jackrabbit has a crush on. She is actually Lori Jackrabbit in prototype form. Lori was initially supposed to be Spaz's love interest as well as Eva Earlong's distant cousin, but Project 2 Interactive accidentally described her as the lost sister of him and Jazz. Additionally, Lori's creator, Dean Dodrill, wanted her to be a playable character. Hence, for The Secret Files, Lori was changed into the Jackrabbit sister and was made playable.

References

The Dopefish (from id Software's Commander Keen series) is mentioned on a signpost in the stage "A Diamondus Forever". The sign reads "Spaz ate the Dopefish".

Spaz

Spaz, Jazz's younger brother in the game, was actually the result of a joke. During JJ2's development it was full of bugs, and one day artist Nick Stadler was so frustrated by the game that he sketched a parody of Jazz on paper, underlined with the words "SPAZ SLACKRABBIT." The drawing was so amusing to the JJ2 development team that Spaz was eventually added to the game as a full-blown character.
