RARE / Nintendo
In an interview published in Retro Gamer, we learned some details about the relationship between RARE and Nintendo, and their unspoken rivalry:
- Wave Race 64 was supposed to have boats, until RARE suggested Jet Skis were used;
- it was Miyamoto who added a tie to Donkey Kong, in a Donkey Kong Country design;
- Donkey Kong’s ground slap in Donkey Kong Country actually originated as a suggestion by Shigeru Miyamoto
