It's A Tragedy That Rare Replay Isn't On A Nintendo Console

Nintendo Life

Resigned to the fact that Rare Replay will remain an Xbox One exclusive until the end of time, I've no real option but to recommend it in the highest manner possible to those of you who happen to own Microsoft's current home console. Not only is it a brilliantly constructed tribute to one of the world's most esteemed game-makers, but it also offers insane value for money and delivers a solid illustration of just how important Nintendo's hardware has been to the evolution of not just this one, legendary studio, but the games industry as a whole.

Tragedy? Don't thing that is appropriate use of the word. May be sad, but not tragic.

I wish Microsoft and Nintendo could come to an agreement to release Diddy Kong Racing on the Virtual Console, it's not like MS would be losing any money because of it but it would be great for fans and effectively promote Banjo & Kazooie franchise when the next Xbox One game is released..

* " Journalist" isn't smart enough to understand the definition of the word Tragedy.

THAT is what "journalism" has become now.

People just over using words they don't comprehend, and saying whatever they want and presenting their opinion as fact.

I would have loved to see something similar on Wii U or 3DS or NX, but I'll take what I can get.

Media are such cry babies.

The only traggic thing I can think of is Nintendo blocking Golden Eye to be released on X360; thus, it is missing in this collection on XB1.

Nintendo clearly doesn't have a problem cooperating with MS on Rare releases, Phil said so.

I think it has to do with the Bond license more than anything.

On the topic of the article, maybe if Nintendo bought the company when it was in its prime it wouldn't have fallen off like it did. Don't get me wrong, still a great studio with a lot of talent, but not the same Rare. Hopefully they will prove themselves with a new IP of their own.

"Although Microsoft, Activision (current owners of the game rights to the James Bond franchise)and Nintendo were said to have agreed upon a licensing deal for the title initially, Nintendo Japan allegedly refused to grant their permission at last minute. Therefore the remake had to be canned only months before completion."

Sea of Thieves... We will see. A new Perfect Dark would be quite welcome, too.

I like how the author gives props without bashing it just because it's on another console. Very classy!

Very well said. No format wars guff just a Rare fan, who wishes these games because of their legacy were on a Nintendo console and ends up recommending them on Xbox!

Yeah when I was a kid/teen Rare was Nintendo. They were the same. It's odd to see Rare on another platform sometimes. It's a shame Donkey Kong Country 1-3 couldn't be in this for obvious reasons. Still a great set I'm interested in.

Rare was golden back then :3
