Conker Creator Says the Return of Rare IP to Nintendo Platforms Was “Inevitable”

Before Rare was purchased by Microsoft and absolutely crushed everything near and dear to many fans’ hearts by releasing Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts, they were releasing absolute bangers for all of their favorite Nintendo consoles. Well apparently to the creator of Conker, the return of Rare IP to Nintendo platforms is going to happen sooner or later.

I get it. Rare was bad then. But...Nintendo are the ones that sold them. They initiated the downfall. People had to leave Rare because Nintendo sold them.

But, it happened. Ready for Banjo Amiibos. Banjo Kazooie?Tooie remake. eah yeah

Nintendo never fully owned Rare. Microsoft had 51% of their stake before Nintendo sold their 49%, so how was it they initiated the down fall?

I hope Microsoft allow Nintendo the right to include Diddy Kong Racing on the N64 Classic.

Read the story. It does not involve Rare going back to Nintendo but rather Microsoft allowing Rare to release their titles for Switch. Not even all titles.

Plus it’s from a former employee, not a current one. A bitter former employee at that.

Rare also started to decline during their final few years as a Nintendo 2nd party developer. Nintendo also had a falling out with Rare, as they weren’t pleased with the sales numbers of Jet Force Gemini , Perfect Dark, & Banjo Tooie and Star Fox Adventures. Nintendo also refused to publish and market Conker’s Bad Fur Day.

As long as Microsoft owns Rare they'll never create games like that again. They can reuse the names but the games will never be as good.

And what problems did you have with Kameo and Viva Pinata?

“The company’s first-party studios boss has even indicated he would allow Xbox developers such as Rare to create new games for rival platforms, such as Nintendo Switch, in the future.”

Well then, who should we believe? You, or MS themselves?

Hey, great if it happens. Makes you wonder though, why would they make a game on a platform that would outsell their own hardware, unless they go software only? As much as people want gaming socialism, they are still in a buisness to make money. Why waste billions of r&d on their own hardware just to make a game for a rival platform? And the quote you pulled says "indicated". I'm sure gaming journalism wouldn't spin that at all. I mean, look at the title. It makes you think their games are already on the switch. Lol.

Rare was definitely better under Nintendo. The years of making Kinect games I’m sure made a lot of the talent leave. What a waste
