Conker's Bad Fur Day Update

We recently saw a new M-rated version of Conker's Bad Fur Day for the Nintendo 64. This isn't the game you once knew.


Burned out on cute platform games? From the looks of Conker's Bad Fur Day, maybe Rare is getting a bit burned out on them too. So the company has taken Conker, the happy squirrel who was supposed to appear in yet another cutesy platformer, and thrust him into a decidedly violent, adult, M-rated world.

The short video clip that Nintendo showed at its recent Perfect Dark event gave the collected press a glimpse of the game's sense of humor. The opening depicts Conker waking up in the middle of a boat, surrounded by fuzzy animals who happen to be decked out in their best Saving Private Ryan getups. To make a long story short, the door to the craft drops, and Conker's entire platoon gets smoked. Other short bits showed characters smoking cigarettes, a dinosaur-looking creature ripping a furry animal in half, a door that helpfully told Conker to "f-k off," and sexual innuendos such as a woman proclaiming, "He's got a bigger bone than you."

How the game will actually play remains to be seen, though it's a pretty safe bet that it will probably follow the example set by Donkey Kong 64 and Banjo-Kazooie. Conker's Bad Fur Day is scheduled to release in the fourth quarter of this year.
