Rare Looking Into Bringing Perfect Dark, Banjo, Conker To Xbox One

Posted on Friday, August 23 @ 09:06:02 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Rare has had its hands full working on more casual-centric games for Microsoft, but that may change in the future, as the studio behind the upcoming Kinect Sports Rivals is looking into brining some of its classic franchises to Xbox One.

By combining Kinect and controller support into one experience, Rare hopes to change the way we play beloved series like Perfect Dark, Banjo, and Conker. "When we launched Kinect obviously there was a big focus on 'everything must be Kinect,'" Rare's Simon Woodroffe told OXM. "Now it's in the box, use it where it make sense, don't where it doesn't. It can be used in some really - not gimmicky ways, which is what I think you'll see a fair amount of - but ways that actually really enhance the game. We've got some ideas for how to use it in the right way."

When asked  if we'd see a new Perfect Dark, Woodroffe replied:

Maybe! We've got an idea for that. It would be controller plus Kinect. We've got ideas for most older Rare IP, you won't be surprised to hear. There's quite a lot of desire to do that, and Viva Pinata, Conker... Banjo's very popular internally, a lot of people want to do stuff with Banjo.

So if we can find the right - we're all about giving people new experiences, that's what we want to do. It's a very technical studio. I'm relatively new, what I've learned is they're brilliant at technology, they really know how to make creative things out of technology.

We want to find that thing that nobody's ever done before and make a game out of it. We should be inventing new genres, inventing new ways to play. And this sensor gives us new opportunities to do it, with the fidelity it has now.

Are you excited to see classic Rare franchises brought back to life on Xbox One? Could Kinect integration be a good thing? Share you thoughts in the comments below.
