Never really liked DK64. Besides I'm sure rare has something to do with it not showing up anywhere!

Isnt that the game that had another Rare game in it as a bonus level that you had to do to get a 100% completion score?

Yep that was it, I just looked it up. In Cranky's lab you had to play Jetpac which is a Rare game to get a Rareware coin. That right there is why it never came to the VC.

Well the fact that Rare made DK64 wasnt enough to keep it off of the VC just look at the SNES DKC games. But because Nintendo didnt own any part of Jetpac, they couldn't use the argument that they did for the DKC games.

Yeah but those games were recently removed for some odd reason???? I'm wondering if rare or more importantly microsoft had something to do with that.

@Tasuki
Surely they could have just replaced the Jetpac minigame part with something else? There's got to be another reason that it never got released on VC. Did Rare have a larger role in the N64 game than they did on the SNES? DK64 was one of my favourtie N64 titles and I've always wanted to see it again.

@Tech: I believe it had something to do with the contract that Nintendo had with MS for the DKC games on the VC. It probably stated that the DKC were only for the Wii and that generation of consoles well since Nintendo now has the Wii U the contract is probably no good now and a new one has to be worked out.

@WesCash: Yes it could be removed but than it wont be the original format. Nintendo has stated before that the games on the VC were going to be the original games in their original forms. Yeah I know some games they did make minor changes such as the signs in Wave Race 64 but to redo a whole level like they would have to do in DK64? Yeah I dont see that happening. Anyway with the DKC series now gone I am sure we wont see DK64 anytime soon.

So, it's just a straight up port? Well hopefully Retro has something else up their sleeves?

There is no way this is all they've been working on. I'm sure in a couple of months or at e3 we will really see what they've been doing.
