Rare was a prominent part of Nintendo’s history in the 90’s, responsible for major games such as Donkey Kong Country, Banjo-Kazooie, and GoldenEye 007, though it rather famously departed from the Big N in 2002 for supposedly greener pastures with Microsoft. Still, the company holds a special place in the heart of many gamers, and given the studio’s prolific output over the years, there’s plenty to look back on. To capitalize on this, Dark Horse Comics will now be publishing a book about the company’s history.

The new book will be called “Rare Treasures”, and will feature, art, commentary, and interviews with team members from across the thirty years the company has been around. It’s listed for $40, and has a tentative release date of August 30th, though this could be changed in the near future. We’ll be sure to keep you posted on this as it nears release.
