RARE Developing for DS

Archived from groups: alt.games.video.nintendo.gameboy.advance (More info?)

EXCLUSIVE: A brief sighting of Ken Lobb reveals a lot, especially for
Nintendo loyalists.

After going in and out of the Nintendo DS area tons of times and laughing
while people waited in line for 2 hours+, I went in on my second to last
trip and met up with Microsoft's Ken Lobb.

At first we played some Picto-Chat together where we communicated with our
drawings on the Nintendo DS.

Secondly, we began to speak and what he said was short but very revealing.

Being paraphrased as I don't have the exact quote, he went on and said,

"It's Mr. Pants would be great with the touch pad and the stylus!"

For those of you who don't know, It's Mr. Pants is a very mysterious Rare
game based off a character made up on its website at
http://www.rareware.com.

After him mentioning that, I began to speak to him about the Nintendo DS. He
loves the DS and confirmed with me that Rare does have DS development kits
and that two titles are in the works for the DS.
I for one am a huge fan of Rare and with Rare still making titles for the
GBA and the Nintendo DS, I cannot wait for their next title.

He also went on to say that It's Mr Pants! is complete and has been for some
time now, but for some reason THQ doesn't want to publish it.

More as it breaks.

    Since Rare hasn't made anything worhtwhile since Goldeneye and Perfect Dark,
    and never made anything worth while before that, I could care less about
    them developing for the DS, unless it mean't an enhnaced Goldeneye port.

    Yeah, I always considered it overrated. I always felt that DKC was a poor
    man's Super Mario World. It had nice graphics, without a doubt, but the
    gameplay and level-design seemed weak to me compared to SMW.

    Just for kicks let's look at the word funeral for a moment. Starts with
    the word FUN doesn't it.

    Well, I'll agree than SMW is better than DCK, but I'm not big on Mario game
    either (save for Mario 2).
