Rare Replay Won’t Come To The Wii U


At the end of last week, rumors suggested Rare Replay could find a new home. The collection resides on Microsoft’s Xbox One, but on December 7 the Microsoft Studios Twitter account said to ask Rare for a port for the Nintendo Wii U. Rare has come forward to squash the thought.

Rare Replay is a collection of 30 Rare games. Of those, 16 originally appeared on Nintendo consoles.
