The Microsoft ownership of Rare can be a sore spot for Nintendo gamers, and the announcement of Rare Replay for Xbox One will sting. Incorporating some games previously available as downloads but many that haven't been, it's a compilation of 30 Rare classics that'll sell for $30 from 4th August.
Games highlighted as part of the collection include RC Pro-Am, Perfect Dark, Banjo-Kazooie, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Battletoads and more. Of course, no Rare games utilising Nintendo IP are included, while the licensing issues around GoldenEye 007 mean that it's also absent.
It's a good fit for Rare's 30th anniversary, though it'll be quite an adjustment for some to see a number of NES, SNES and Nintendo 64 classics on Xbox One.
