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.
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:
In the ending cutscene of Jazz Jackrabbit 2
, there is a bucktoothed female rabbit who Spaz has a crush on. She is actually Lori in prototype form. She was supposed to be Spaz's girlfriend, but Project 2 Interactive mentioned that Lori was the lost sister of Jazz and Spaz, and also because her creator, Dean Dodrill, wanted Lori to be a playable character, her role was changed and now she is Jazz's sister instead of Spaz's girlfriend.
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, 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.Additional information contributed by
