Rare Ltd. is a British video game developer located in Twycross, Leicestershire, England. The company was established in 1985 by Tim and Chris Stamper, who previously founded Ultimate Play the Game. During its early years, Rare primarily concentrated on Nintendo Entertainment System games, creating successful titles such as Wizards & Warriors and R.C. Pro-Am. In 1994, Rare became a Nintendo second-party developer and achieved great critical acclaim with their subsequent releases, including Donkey Kong Country, Killer Instinct, GoldenEye 007, Banjo-Kazooie, Perfect Dark and Conker's Bad Fur Day.
