Rumor: Rare Looking Into 3DS Development

Nintendolife writes: "Supposedly, the company is in talks with Nintendo to develop games for the 3DS platform, including a 3D continuation of the Banjo-Kazooie franchise. Pleased with the success of their previous handheld outings and seeing no conflict between the Xbox market and the handheld gaming market, Microsoft supposedly sees this as a positive as it could boost sales of their titles developed for Xbox 360. Sources also say that Nintendo and Rare discussed a 3DS continuation of the Star Fox Adventures series, but that nothing is currently in development on that front."

i thought Rare was officially owned by Microsoft.....

if not conker 3ds please

They are but since MS doesn't have a major handheld system Rare sometimes works on DS games. They made a Diddy Kong Racing game and a Viva Pinata game for the DS while being owned by MS.

Yeah, Microsoft have developed games for DS before I think, so Rare doing it makes sense in a lot of ways, as mentioned in the article.

Viva Pinata: Pocket Paradise (metacritic 82%) was the title Rare did for Nintendo. Oddly, THQ published that title. Hopefully Nintendo is looking to publish this title, that way Rare can get some "honest feedback" with Nintendo pushing them to make a great game.

Edit: They also did Diddy Kong Racing for DS and that title was actually published by Nintendo and sold over 1 million worldwide so....

maybe they could have success on the 3DS

Errrrm, yeah, it'd be nice if Rare could find the time to do some X360 games as well.

No thanks. These guys are dead to me.

PygmelionHunter2494d ago

Yeah but if they give their N64 games a 3D treatment (ala Ocarina Of Time 3D), they can have my money right away!

SonyNGP2494d ago

I wouldn't mind a Conker's Bad Fur Day (not that Live and Reloaded crap) port on the 3DS, but other than that, they're still dead to me.
