What would happen if Nintendo bought back Rare?

They'd make whole new games 0 0%
 
They'd bring back old Nintendo games 3 33.33%
 
They'd do both 6 66.67%
 
Total:9

Rare as it exists today is a puppeteered corpse.

They haven't made a good game since the N64.



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

Rare today is not Rare of 15 to 25 years ago.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

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

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

Your signature says you stand with Ajit Pai.

That's because they've been away from Nintendo for so long.

It's because pretty much all the people who made Rare of the 90s so amazing are long gone. A studio is only as good as its staff.

Wouldn't be worth it, imo.
The additional new talent they'd get, they can just get anywhere else, without having to buy the whole package.
So is it worth it just for the Perfect Dark/Banjo/Conker, I.P's?
I don't think so.

I'd say it is, especially since Nintendo would do a better job with them than Microsoft did.

Killer Instinct is the only Rare IP Microsoft didn't ruin.
