Ex-Rare employee, Donnchadh Murphy, who worked on games like Killer instinct Gold, Conker's Bad Fur Day and many others gave an interview for the website Not Enough Shaders.
Here is a portion of the interview:
NES: -"Are there any Rare games you would like to see as HD remakes on Xbox Live Arcade?"
Donnchadh Murphy: -"Probably the same game every Rare fan wants to see and that’s KI3 (Killer Instinct 3). We all wanted to make KI3, but Microsoft were more interested on broadening their demographic, than making another fighting game. So it never got made, I doubt it ever will."
In this interview, Murphy also talked about Conker and some other aspects of the company.
I wish Sony owned rare. Even if Nintendo owned rare I feel like killer instinct 3 would be gimped or not made
"Are there any Rare games you would like to see as HD remakes on Xbox Live Arcade?"
Why would he answer with Killer Instinct 3? I'd like to see Jet Force Gemini makes its way over to XBLA.
another reason i hate microsoft.. wtf wouldnt they let em do it??? its a great series & needs to be revived..
i guess its all about money for them instead of making fans happy.. I dont blame rare for making $hitty games as of late.. Microsoft isnt letting them do what theyre passionate about doing
That is a load of BS!!! Mann, MS are bunch of pricks for this! I want another KI 3 game like right now... MS just let Rare go already you are not doing anything with them at all.
I guess MS would rather Rare pump out kinect garbage
