The lights are on
After more than a decade out of the spotlight, Rare's vulgar squirrel is back – and you can create his next adventure.
Rare's M-rated mascot made a surprise appearance during a trailer for Project Spark at Microsoft's E3 press conference. The video announced that Team Dakota's game maker is getting a new "Galaxies" tile set, allowing armchair developers to create sci-fi themed worlds and games.
At the end of the video, however, a chainsaw-wielding Conker appeared to announce that he'd also be available in an update, which we assume will also include other characters and assets from Conker's Bad Fur Day. It might not be the sequel longtime Rare fans have wanted, but at least it's something.
