Kiss Banjo-Kazooie, Conker, and Miss Dark good-bye. You will no longer see new games with these characters on Nintendo systems.

We posted the press release about Nintendo "dropping" Rare a little earlier today, but we've learned some additional news from our inside sources that the press release seemingly left out.

Rare will retain the rights to Banjo Kazooie, Conker, and Perfect Dark. You will no longer see new games with these licenses on Nintendo systems. Rare owns these licenses.

So what happens to the GBA games? Our sources say that the games like Diddy Kong Pilot, and Donkey Kong Coconut Crackers will be released by Nintendo. Banjo Kazooie and Sabre Wulf will not be joining the released titles.

We should have more news on this in the next couple of days.
