Phil Spencer: “Rare is Working on a Uniquely Rare Game”

Phil Spencer, the head of Microsoft’s Xbox division, has stated on his Twitter account that Rare, the company behind such games as Killer Instinct and Perfect Dark, is currently working on a title that is “Uniquely Rare.” Anything else about the title is unknown at the moment, but there is talk among the gaming community that the Tweet might have something to do with the recent trademark by Microsoft of the title BattleToads. Rare first developed the Battletoads games way back in the NES era.

Before joining Microsoft early in the last decade, Rare was a part of Nintendo’s cavalcade of second-party developers, having created hit titles for the gaming giant such as Donkey Kong Country, Diddy Kong Racing, and the much loved Golden Eye 007 FPS. But only time will tell if the studio will ever be able to regain the glorious status it held in the late 90’s.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
