"Rare's New Game Put a Smile on Phil Harrison's Face"

Wow and that guys hard to please.

There have been several Rare games that put smiles on my face as well. Grabbed by the Ghoulies is a hidden gem on the original xbox that i'd love to see a sequel to.

Others that Rare made back on the N64 could be remade as well. Jet Force Gemini is a fun game and i think we already have a feeling there will be a Battletoads game at some point.

I'm so glad Phil harrison and Ken Lobb are overseeing UK studios. Both guys have a good eye for talent and great content. Can't wait to see what these studios have in store for fans also it seems Playground is already working on something new.

I think a lot of people are misunderstanding your comment at first glance haha. Myself included.

Yeah, he should keep his mouth shut /s

Yoshida does it. Aonuma did it a few days ago with Zelda. People are excited about the games they're making/coming to their platform. Blasphemy, truly.

Of course there's also the possibility that Quantum Break looks great and the new Rare game put a smile on Phil Harrison's face.

I have a feeling we're getting two rare ips. A rare made Banjo, and an outsourced Battletoads.

nirwanda3475d ago

Sounds like conkers bad fur day to me.

OOMagnum3475d ago

Thats definately a possibility. That'd be another over the top game,ala, Sunset.

MeliMel3475d ago

Yes, the cameo in Project Spark was the hint it was coming.

christocolus3475d ago


I think the KI devs will handle battletoads while BK will be given to Press play. This new game by rare will be a new and unique ip.
