I teared up. BK reminds me of my grandma, who I miss very much. Smash Ultimate is only missing one series to fully encompass my childhood of playing video games and beyond.Is it wrong that I shed a few tears watching this? I had an N-64 and both Banjo games and enjoyed them well enough but don't have any personal attachment to the character. But watching all the unbridled excitement for what is effectively an estranged Nintendo character to come home just gets me in the feels.
I'm actually really hoping this leads to some collabs between Rare and Nintendo like some of the GBA and DS projects they did with them. I know Rare isn't the same company anymore, but I think they deserve another chance.Diddy Kong Racing for both Microsoft Xbox and Switch would be awesome. Interesting is Rare could even dev a game like this anymore. But either way Microsoft could use a good kart racer on its system.
We have to consider what is on the other side of the deal (outside of money/royalties per sale of dlc for BK).
K Rool has survived much worse, he'll be fine.
