Anyways I think if Nintendo bought Rare theyd mostly use them for the rights to mascots. Adding in nostalgia to Smash. But theyd probably also fire and hire new employees for a game. What game that would be idk.

Interesting words, coming from someone who sides with that bastard Ajit Pai.

Banjo/Kazooie, Conker, and Joanna Dark would be in Smash.

Yeah, and like I also said before, Phil Spencer would like to see Banjo/Kazooie in Smash.

Joanna would probably be a moveset clone of Zero-Suit Samus though.

The problem is Microsoft is probably demanding a Lion's share of the profit for that one character.

That's why it'd be better if Nintendo bought Rare, or at least those characters.



Nintendo should buy both Rare and Playtonic.

And then merge them together.

Interesting idea, but Playtonic isn't any serious trouble that they need to be bought, like Comcept was so they were acquired by Level 5.

Yeah they're not in trouble, but the resources Nintendo could invest in them could result in some great games. That was the line I was thinking along.

True, that's how the Switch version of Yooka-Laylee became the better version, and while under Nintendo they'd be able to take closer notes from Super Mario Odyssey. :D

Aren't most of the key people who worked for Rare during the SNES/N64 era gone?

As I said before, yes, but they're bringing in new talent at Rare that will likely pay off.

It'd be either Nintendo buying Rare, or buying Playtonic since that's where the Donkey Kong Country and Banjo-Kazooie team went.

In that case the only benefit would be to acquire old IP's like KI, Perfect Dark... right?

Not quite. They'd work more closely with Nintendo, who would oversee as much as possible to make sure the games are ready before release date.

Is there some kind of irony or joke here that I don't get?
