It's not about T'n'a. It's about redesign pandering to fragile idiots who can't live without being offended by something.

So between this and the addition of Banjo to Smash, does anyone else just think Microsoft ought to sell the Rare IPs back to Nintendo?

Didn't Nintendo essentially hand over the IPs of Banjo, Conker, etc. to Rare/Microsoft as a parting gift around 2002?

Yeah, at least the toads are recognizable; toad with shades, toad without shades and olive big boy. But here... Purple hair I guess... Like, even if you'd do a non-sexy Evil Queen, her key traits would be purple eye shadow, high thin eye brows and that pop-collar Dracula cape

All I know is, Andrew picked an unfortunate screenshot. I look and I don't see no Dark Queen, I see Michael Jackson.

Funny how Battletoads happened. Because the developers wanted a game that capitalized on the TMNT. and that game went on to become beloved and a classic.

Seems to me most people have a love-hate relationship with the game due to its difficulty and buggy two-player mode.

I'm sure a lot of us do but I doubt it would happen. Makes sense to since some of them would likely preform better on their platforms, though Nintendo themselves don't seem interested in them. Phil Spencer seems like he's somewhat okay with some of their games appearing on the Switch, although I have my reservations on why I don't completely buy that assumption. MS may have plans for them such as KI and Battletoads. Banjo appearing in Smash might be used as a marketing tool to get some of those players interested in a new Banjo if the series ever gets green-lighted.

No actually. Rare just become a second-party developer for Nintendo until 2002. The Big N already owned DK and Star Fox (of which Rare only worked on one game for the series) but Rare have always had IP ownership of Banjo, Conker, Battletoads, Jetpac, etc.

Looks like a hot trash.

Animation is good, but gameplay is completely missing the mark.

The gameplay looks like it could have been very fun and has a great fluid and sharp look.

Too bad its showcasing some of the ugliest designs since Rise. Holy ugly hot steaming diarrhea. With corn.
