Microsoft has seen money in Nintendo platforms and cannily wants to be part of the success which is why we’ve seen Banjo in Super Smash Bros Ultimate plus the critically acclaimed Cuphead and possibly Ori and the Blind Forest on the Nintendo Switch. It’s clearly a good move for everyone, the team at Microsoft, the team at Nintendo, and most importantly, the fans. Speaking to Video Game Chronicles , Conker Creator, Chris Seavor, believes it is only a matter of time before Rare IP arrives on the Nintendo Switch. Here’s his thoughts.
“It is significant, very significant but it was also inevitable,” he said of the possibility that classic Rare IP could return to Nintendo platforms. “You only have to look at the reaction to Banjo’s appearing in Smash to see that this was purely a fan driven thing, and fans are if nothing else a noisy and belligerent bunch. I mean, it’s an abbreviation of ‘Fanatic’ after all.
“Whether they’ll be as loud about the other IP’s including Conker is up for debate… I’d say not likely.”
