Man, as crazy as may sound, i don´t want RARE to make a Battletoads games. I would rather task them with a new true AAA Perfect Dark game and give Battletoads to be developed by Studio MDHR in an amazing metroidvania style. :)

I welcome a new Perfect Dark

Whatever made Rare special in its prime? Is long, long gone in the people who have since moved on. Rare is merely a name. Anyone who thinks this thing is "resurrected", well, I guess you can't tell the difference between resurrection, and a shambling corpse I suppose.

Rare is not "resurrected" by any means.

I think Rare is still in the "Ruin" phase, which no resurrection in sight.

What resurrection? The original Rare has been gone for a long time, this version of the studio is, I dont know what it is lol

I would love to see a resurrection of Rare, but Sea of Thieves ain't gonna cut it and it won't happen on Microsoft's watch.

They were in their prime in NES, SuperNES and N64 days in my opinion, just thinking about them makes me nostalgic for Solar Jetman, Snake Rattle n Roll and RC ProAM. What a shame to see what became of one of the best Devs in the business 😭
