Rare Reconfirms Rare Replay Is Staying On Xbox One

Quite a few people got rather excited when the official Microsoft Studios blog suggested that people contact Rare to find out whether they could bring the glorious Rare Replay collection to the Wii U. Today, Rare has put its foot down and has said that the compilation is staying exclusive to the Xbox One along with its next project Sea of Thieves.

  1. Well fucking duh. Nintendo fans act like just because minecraft is on wii u now that you’ll get the whole damn box chocolates of rareware from Microsoft. Like sit the fuck down! We’re not getting anymore shit from them.

  2. I WANT MY BANJO & KAZOOIE! FOR RARE’S SAKE, THEY’D BETTER BE IN SMASH BROS. TOMORROW OR I’M NOT A BANJO & KAZOOIE FAN ANYMORE! I WAS HOPING THIS WOULD BE MY ONE CHANCE TO PLAY THEM ON MY WII U, GETTING MY CHILDHOOD BACK, TRYING OUT NUTS & BOLTS FOR MY FIRST TIME. BUT NOPE, RARE WENT AND SAID NO. FLIPPING JERKS! THEY BETTER MAKE A 3DS REMAKE OF BANJO-KAZOOIE AT SOME POINT!

  3. The only thing worth a damn in Rare Replay is Banjo Kazooie, which is a copycat of Donkey Kong 64 anyway.
    Rare never did anything noteworthy either before or after they worked for Nintendo, and Microsoft has had them working on making their shitty peripherals suck less for the last 10 years which explains why the newest game in Rare Replay is Viva Piñata.

      1. Seriously? Does he not know anything of rare? Batman, stranga, help me out with this fool. In over all, I guess you thought killer instinct, Donkey Kong Country, conker, Agent dark or perfect Dark, Conker’s Bad Fur Day, Battle toads, ETC. are all nothing, Yeah Banjo was like a copy but its in the controls, not the game. Rare made its legend on its own games thanks to nintendo as a second party Mr. TheAG (@followtheAG). I suggest you play those games before talking…rare is shit now, but their games in the previous generations are worth it.

    1. But…. Banjo Kazooie is from 98 and DK64 is from 99? How is BK the clone?

      Also the last Viva Piñata is not as new as Nuts and bolts, which I believe (correct me if I’m wrong) came out a few months apart.

      1. Yea, I’m young (mid teens) but I still love the older Rare games. I still love the NES, and SNES even though I started out on N64. Just because you are young doesn’t mean you can’t aprecciate older games. Some young people have this strange mindset like that now that when a new console gen is out, that makes the old one instantly terrible, and the new one way better. That’s not the case. Now the new gen might be better (all opinion based of course) but that doesn’t mean you can’t like the older games as well. Now some older gamers (and I hate using that term “gamers” BTW) are so stuck in the past that they think the newer gens are complete junk, and your only a “real gamer” if you stick to “the classics.” Both of these are extremely wrong. Just because somethings old doesn’t make it better or worse, same with if its newer. Why can’t we just like the games we like, dislike the games we dislike and be more of a gaming community, instead of a gaming Tyranny, with everyone wanting to be the Ruler.

        I agree with fanboydestroyer. This line says it all: “Rare never did anything noteworthy either before or after they worked for Nintendo…” Pfft. That or he’s just being a hateful little Nintendo fanboy dissing Rare’s games from the past because they are part of Microsoft now. Just because Rare sucks now doesn’t erase the fact their past games before being bought & owned by Microsoft were awesome.

  4. The main reason why I believe that Rare Replay could never come to Wii U involves the way Rare Replay was developed.

    Any game released prior to the collection on the Xbox 360 runs an emulator of the Xbox 360 on the Xbox One, similarly to how they work backwards compatibility.

    It boots to a direct recreation of the Xbox 360 home screen and actually signs in the user to the Xbox 360 server. This is the case for the HD versions of Banjo and Perfect Dark, as well as all of the retail games too (Both Viva Piñata titles, Perfect Dark Zero, Nuts and Bolts etc.)

    I highly doubt Rare had ever intended of releasing the collection elsewhere and used this as a way to test the water for backwards compatibility on the Xbox One.

    (I may be the only person on this site that actively uses an Xbox One, which is fine, because I also love my Wii U and 3DS.)

  5. Not really surprised, and as a Xbone owner, don’t really care, I have my copy, and love it, even if Rare of nowadays has nothing to do with most of the games present on the collection.
    Would be awesome though, a Rare Replay with the DK games, SF Adventures, etc…
    Nintendo could do something like that, yes, I am aware of NES Remix, but those games, as great as they are, work like the Snapshot Gallery of Rare Replay, they are not a full compilation of Nintendo’s history, but with the Virtual Console, that collection is likely to happen as Halo on Wii U, again, I like VC, I have a lot of VC games, especially on the Wii, but I would love the “Nintendo Replay” collection! 😃

    *sigh* Xbone, here I come… some day. Maybe I’ll get lucky & win a free Xbone from that Game of Life thing the grocery store I’ve been going to for the last few months is doing. We are 1 sticky away from winning it, too! If I can win it for free now, I won’t have to wait til it’s cheap some 10 years from now. Then I’ll just have to buy Rare Replay & boom! Childhood during the N64 playing awesome Rare titles, here I come!
