Rare is a British company that used to make Donkey Kong shames. They also made a lot of other shaming series, most notably the Banjo and Kazooie shames, and not to mention, Conker games. Now they are owned by the Microsoft people, since NintenDON'T was too lazy to renew their contract. Now they are replaced by another company named Namcan't, just to make more DK shames. Nintendo is currently in a war against Microsoft, fighting for ownership of Rare.
