Ignoring that it is actually Friday today (somewhere in the world it is Thursday though!), Kosta is back with another old-school title, this time from 1987. Wizard & Warriors is considered a pretty special title, thanks to it being Rare's second title on Nintendo's console, and one that many older gamers probably have fond memories of.
Many of you probably know the name Rare from the studio’s releases across multiple Nintendo consoles. For quite a while there, in the world of all things Nintendo, Rare was a pretty big deal. For old-school Nintendo fans games like Donkey Kong Country on the Super Nintendo and Goldeneye 007 on the Nintendo 64 helped place the UK developer near or on the same level as that of Nintendo’s own internal development teams. And as we’re talking about the teams behind Mario and Zelda, that’s no small feat. But Rare’s relationship with Nintendo consoles goes back further than the mid-90s and began with the 8-bit, Nintendo Entertainment System.Click here for our Throwback Thursday "Wizards & Warriors" edition
