Rare, the legendary developer behind such beloved classics as Banjo Kazooie and GoldenEye 007, has stated on its website that there are currently no plans to bring any franchises over to Nintendo 3DS. The development studio wouldnt confirm whether or not Nintendo 3DS development is being discussed, but lets hope it is. Would you like to see some key franchises from Rare on Nintendo 3DS?

I don't really care much for Rare right now. After Nuts & Bolts, I don't think they have the ability to make good games again, unfortunately =/

If rare was planning on porting old 64 and earlier games onto the 3ds I would be happy, but anything new from them is highly likely to be utter poopy. It makes me sad when i dust off my 64 and play Jet Force Gemini and know that they haven't made a game that fun and probably never will again.

On the contrary, I think N&B was very subpar. They took out all gameplay mechanics that made Banjo-Kazooie fun and replaced them with badly designed and repetitive missions in empty worlds. It was fun exploring the overworld, but I think that's about the only decent part of the game.

yeah, but in the past they've allowed Rare to releace on Nintendo Handhelds. I think Diddy Kong Racing for DS was handled by them. I would have thought that would have changed with WP7 and Surface. Guess Microsoft dosn't want its own money :?

thats what i was gonna say the first part atleast. and if microsoft was gonna let "rare" make any game, i doubt theyd let nintendo have it. possible yes (they did a few gba and ds games since the ms takeover) but i wouldnt get my hopes up, and the article provided shouldnt get ur hopes up either.
