New Ip confirmed from Rare. So glad to see Battletoads make a comeback.

I'm not that excited. I was expecting a real come back in a modern setting, something like Batman. Instead, it's just another of the countless side scrollers.

Hand drawn 4k graphics....thing is going to look beautiful.

I hope it's a brutal as the first game.

MS should try and get a deal and put the Lee brothers in as extra characters.

Rare can’t be bothered to revive their own classic IPs. They must still feel jilted after Rare Replay didn’t prove to be a huge seller

darthv72158d ago

Or... they are so wrapped up in adding more content to Sea of Thieves that they have full confidence in the team that is doing the work on Battletoads.

Rare Replay sold better than expected ( I am very confident it had a high digital attachment due to its low price.

MrSwankSinatra158d ago

Rare isn't even the same company anymore all the talent they once had, has been gone for years.

Same for Bungie, same for Naughty Dog. Most game companies are not made up of the same people they were 10 years ago.

There is plenty of talent at Rare.

Like most studios of that age, talent changes hands quite often

Sea of Thieves would like to have a word with you.

Septic158d ago

Rare Replay sold a lot more than anticipated

N4G: Ms needs new IP!
Rare: we are making new IP while letting other studio handle our classic IPs.
N4G: MS doesn’t even care about their old IPs!!!


Edit: And FYI, Rare Replays sold better than expected. It even topped UK sale chart.

I don't know how to feell about this. I kinda want them to revive Blinx,Conker or Banjo. But im also not against them making a new IP.

paintedgamer1984158d ago (Edited 158d ago )

Theres an idea, if they cant make decent new experiences at least they might be able to revive older 1s. How much do you want to bet they are working on sot2. Or their comment could be taken out of context and what they mean is expansions on sot.

TheCommentator158d ago

Blinx was developed by Artoon.

Monster_Tard158d ago (Edited 158d ago )

It's for the best. Killer Instinct was the only Rare IP that was successfully brought back and it wasn't Rare who did it, but a 3rd party developer, Battle Toads are probably in better hands. It's evident with the Banjo Kazooie Nuts N Bolts and Perfect Dark Zero games, along with their use of Conker, the Rare team just doesn't understand the older IP's and can't seem to comprehend what fans liked about them, I'd rather see them take a shot with new IP's than further tarnish their old ones.

I wish a new, great company was put on a Banjo Kazooie 3 project.

Would love to see Banjo 3...especially from a company that knows what they are doing in that 3D Platformer field

BlackIceJoe158d ago

With Rare making a new IP I hope it will take what Rare learned in making Nuts & Bolts, but be a new game instead. I know that Banjo Kazooie game didn't get much love, but I feel like had it been a new IP people would have liked it more, so making a new game could be fun.
