Rare Replay was announced during today’s Microsoft E3 conference. Rumors that a collection of Rare games would be coming to Xbox One have been floating around for a while now, and it turns out that the collection is real – and it’ll be coming to Xbox One on August 4, 2015 for $30. Check out the trailer below.
If we freeze the video at the 0:53 mark (a screenshot is shown below), we can get a better look at what titles might be included with this collection. The logos for Perfect Dark, Perfect Dark Zero, Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, Jet Force Gemini, Battletoads, Grabbed by the Ghoulies, Viva Pinata, Viva Pinata: Trouble in Paradise, Snake Rattle ‘n’ Roll, Knight Lore, R.C. Pro-Am, R.C. Pro-Am II, Sabre Wulf, Digger T. Rock, Blast Corps, Solar Jetman, and Kameo: Elements of Power can all be seen in the video.
That’s 18 classic Rare titles, and the video promises that the collection will include thirty games. Rare Replay is going to be absolutely fantastic – the Banjo-Kazooie games, Jet Force Gemini, Conker’s Bad Fur Day, Perfect Dark, Blast Corps, Battletoads, and the Viva Pinata games are all fan favorites already, and the collection will give players a chance to play all of these games on Xbox One along with other great titles from Rare.
Rare Replay will reportedly include achievements that add up to a stunning 10,000 gamerscore – when the game launches, it will replace Halo: The Master Chief Collection as the Xbox One game with the most achievements. The Donkey Kong Country series and GoldenEye 007 are absent from the collection, but this is to be expected, as those franchises have shifted hands in recent years. Even without these games, Rare Replay is shaping up to be a really awesome addition to the Xbox One library.
