Conker creator on Rare barns, sequel plans, Rusty Pup and more
by Jonathan Holmes

Some weeks ago on Sup Holmes, we welcomed Chris Seavor of Gory Detail to the program. Chris got his start in games working on the original Killer Instinct at Rare. From the sound of it, Rare was able to harness the best aspects of big-budget and independent development in those days. Back then, each team at Rare worked in their own "barn" and made the games they wanted to play. And no, "barn" isn't slang for something else. They were really working in farmyard barns.

Other topics included Rare's special relationship with Nintendo, the hot competition between the Banjo-Kazooie barn and the Conker barn, the surprising, lasting success of GoldenEye, the creative freedom that allowed for Conker's Bad Fur Day to exist, the joy and pain (mostly pain) of voice acting, the company wide vote that contributed to Rare's sale to Microsoft, the malaise that set in thereafter, Chris' old plans for a Conker sequel, and a lot more. Chris even let a bit out about his highly secret new project The Unlikely Legend of Rusty Pup, currently planned for computers and Nintendo consoles. It's one to watch. 

Thanks again to Chris for appearing on the show! I certainly hope it won't be the last time we hear from him. Speaking of which, updates regarding the future of Sup Holmes can be found on our Kickstarter page. The campaign still has a few hours to go and you can already get a few free games on there. Who knows what will happen once the campaign is actually complete?!?! (Hint: we'll make more Sup Holmes and other stuff).

Nintendo's bizzare Tomodachi Life confirmed for North American release

Atlus picks up EarthBound-inspired Citizens of Earth

Super Smash Bros. 3DS out this summer, Wii U version out in winter

Nintendo has dropped a huge bomb on us at the start of the Smash Bros. flavored direct. The 3DS version will be released this summer, and the Wii U version will be released this winter. Yes, that's months after the 3DS iteration.

Wow! That's one way to get you to buy the game on 3DS. Smash director Sakurai notes that the 3DS version will run at 60fps, even in 3D, but some of the Pokemon will run at 30fps. It looks pretty great so far, but I know more than a few people will be pissed at this development.

[Update: It's over! You can watch the presentation again in the embedded video above.]

We heard your guesses for what'll be announced at this afternoon's Super Smash Bros.-themed Nintendo Direct presentation and I liked what you all had to say. Tingle? That'd be a treat. Shulk? Total crowd-pleaser. There's also hope we'll get a release date and, according to Nintendo, that's officially happening: the game's "launch window" will be announced today.

It won't be long now until we find out that and more, so if you're able, come watch the Nintendo Direct with us as it happens live today at 3:00pm Pacific. We'll post any breakout information here on Destructoid, but consider this your comment thread to go wild in for the time being.
