Conker's Bad Fur Day's lead designer doesn't believe there will ever be a game like it again, and that even if a sequel were to be made, the original team wouldn't be the right people to make it.
Conker Live and Reloaded was fun as hell. I would love to see another episode. Bad Fur Day is one of the greatest games ever.
Actually, he says they wouldn't do it. The rumor earlier in the year was that another developer would do a new game in the series. Rare has so many IP that it's obvious they wouldn't be able to revisit them all in house. I mean Iron Galaxy has done brilliant with Killer Instinct, I believe Rare are probably working on a new Battletoads and of course Sea Of Thieves. Rumor was Insomniac Games working on a new Conker, maybe get Twisted Pixel in on a classic Rare IP?
I've always thought that resurrecting the Conker : Twelve Tales code and releasing it as a family game is the best 'prequel' ('before the squirrel went bad'). Conker looked cute in his Roman Centurion outfit, sliding down zipwires and burrowing under fences. But then you could have a mature sequel. Two games in the one package. Perhaps you could even switch between the 2 at a flick of a button.
Then it's time to find new blood and outside the box thinkers .
I agree. I'm pretty sure Cuphead has that same kind of raunchy, out-there, and risk-taking humor that Conker's bad fur day had. Do not limit the limitless. No one knows what gem of a game lies around the corner.
This is actually exactly why I'm nervous about the FF7 remake. The original developers are older; thoughts feelings and opinions have changed over time and that would be reflected in their art...
