THIS FRIDAY IS THE 20 YEARS OF CONKER’S BAD FUR DAY, AND RARE CELEBRATES IT, BUT NOT IN THE WAY SOME WANT
This March 5, 2021 marks the 20th anniversary of Conker’s Bad Fur Day. That’s taking into account his departure two decades ago on the Nintendo 64, when Rare was still one of Nintendo’s studios.
But a lot has happened since then, and today, this developer is part of Xbox Game Studios. However, in the study they do not forget the past, and this Friday they shared a message about it.
CONKER’S BAD FUR DAY IS 20 YEARS OLD TODAY
On his Twitter account, @RareLtd stated “20 years ago today, a certain cheeky squirrel woke up with a hangover and dragged herself and her colorful cast into the hearts of many (and perhaps stole their aspirin as well).”
To the above, he added ‘congratulations on the brand, old friend. Once you turn 21, you can legally have a drink in the United States. ‘ The latter in relation to the age of majority in that country.
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Conker’s Bad Fur Day, new items are available in the company’s online store, such as a pair of T-shirts, a sweatshirt and even a mask.
Similarly, the game’s original composer, Robin Beanland, decided to share a simple tribute on Twitter. To listen to it, you just have to click on one of the links at the end of this note. It’s certainly a way to celebrate Conker’s “birthday.”
RARE CELEBRATES THE GAME, BUT THE FANS WANT MORE
But some players have had too little done. Especially for those who ask, if not a sequel expected for years, a remastered version for Xbox One, or its successor, Xbox Series X | S.
Especially Conker: Live & Reloaded, which was the adaptation of the original for the first Xbox. It can certainly be played on One, but it wouldn’t hurt to create a new version to please the many fans of this Rare work.
Currently, the original title can be played not only on the Nintendo 64, but through the Rare Replay collection, which includes other classics from this company. What looks further away is a sequel.
A long time ago there was an ‘attempt’ to bring the series back through Project Spark. More like this very initiative, it died before it could show its potential. But who knows. The Battletoads returned when no one expected.
