Rare Talks VC Possibilities
Rare was recently asked in their mailbag about the possibility of their past catalog of games coming to the Virtual Console. Here’s what they said:
…The only Rare-developed title on Virtual Console right now is the original Donkey Kong Country, and unofficially there’s a strong likelihood that its sequels will follow. But the Donkey Kong series of games is a Nintendo-owned franchise starring an established Nintendo character, whereas something like Banjo isn’t (and even Diddy Kong Racing is less clear-cut), so it’s nowhere near as easy to call. Especially when you also consider the existence of Xbox Live Arcade. So right now, the best answer we can offer (for either download service) is “it’s possible”.
Not a confirmation of Goldeneye or Perfect Dark, but it’s definitely “possible”.
