Microsoft has released a new gameplay trailer for Project Spark’s Conker’s Big Reunion, which sees Rare’s foul-mouthed squirrel making his comeback.
Conker’s Big Reunion is set a decade after the events of Bad Fur Day, and sees players take control of Conker once more as he sets out to hook up with his old friends. The first episode is priced at $4.99 and offers aroud one hour of gameplay, according to Project Spark developer Team Dakota.
“Conker is the first step to bring a beloved franchise to Project Spark. With the Conker Creation Pack, players will be able to build their own Conker games and tell their own Conker stories,” the developer explained. “There’s no telling what people are going to create (Our moderators are standing by! Hehe) and everything our creators share will be available for free for anyone to play. It’s going to be pretty exciting!
“We didn’t want our community to have all the fun in bringing back Conker so we’re also building the first episode in an all new Conker adventure, called Conker’s Big Reunion. This hour long experience is meant to play like what you’d expect from a Conker game. Team Dakota has built this episode with the same simple yet powerful creation tools our community uses today so it’s also a great way to get inspired by what the Project Spark platform is capable of creating.
“I don’t know what is in store for Conker beyond Project Spark (and Conker’s inclusion here is not limiting other plans for this irreverent squirrel), but I’m hoping that Conker’s Big Reunion is going to set the bar for how to build a great Conker game. It’s amazing how many parodies, mechanics and gags we’ve been able to pack into this first episode. And with Rare and Chris Seavor’s guidance and support, I really believe the Conker fans are going to be satisfied with what we’ve built.”
As well as this, Team Dakota is also releasing the Conker Creation Pack, which features almost 300 game assets, including characters, props, terrain, effects, tunes, and sounds.
Conker’s Big Reunion and the Conker Creation Pack will be available in Project Spark on April 23. The Conker Mega Pack, which includes the Conker Creation Pack, episode one of Conker’s Big Reunion, the Conker Champion (which is playable in Champions Quest and Crossroads), and episode one of Champions Quest can be purchased as one bundle for $9.99.
