  • Rare will be at Gamescom next week with Rare Replay to demo the game

  • Rare has worked in conjunction with Code Mystics on emulating the games in Rare Replay
  • Chose Conker’s Bad Fur Day over Live & Reloaded because they wanted to stick with the original version of the game. Also wanted people to experience the original multiplayer
  • Have many of the voices of your favorite characters on video doing the voices in Rare Replay
  • The most challenging games to emulate over were the Nintendo 64 games. It was a challenge getting them to run at a proper a speed
  • Ken Lobb and Kevin Bayliss discuss the making of KI Gold as an unlockable
  • KI Gold was selected over the SNES version because they felt it was more accessible with the included training mode
  • Conker voices weren’t scripted. Chris Seavor would come in, say what he had in mind, and the team would improvise
  • Didn’t rule out the possibility of additional titles being added to the collection
