It appears as if Minecraft Wii U and Phil Spencer have opened the floodgates.
Given that the Microsoft-owned Minecraft is coming to Nintendo’s newest console and Spencer recently mused on the idea of bringing GoldenEye back, a lot of fans have taken to Twitter to quiz the publisher on future possibilities. So much so that Microsoft has issued a statement, saying that “we have no information of any games coming to the Wii U other than Minecraft.”
But really Rare — is Rare Replay coming? Maybe Microsoft will rise up to save the Wii U in its twilight era before the launch of the NX? Probably not, but a man can dream.
As for GoldenEye, it likely won’t happen. Time and time again Rare has essentially noted “we gave you Perfect Dark, which is like, our original better version anyway.” And every time, I’ve disagreed. I’d love to see a true return of GoldenEye one day with split-screen and online capabilities.
