E3's come and gone, and not as much as a whimper has come from first-party studio Rare's luxurious development barns. What's Rare doing? Working on Project Natal, says Shane Kim.
"Rare is intimately involved with Project Natal in a number of different dimensions," The Microsoft Games Studios boss told Kotaku. "They're doing an awful lot of work, even outside the traditional game space, I would say.
"Unfortunately I can't go into a lot of detail about that. Rare is alive and well and really having a broader impact on the entire Xbox world than just doing the games they traditionally have in the past," he said.
The last titles to come from Rare were last year's Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts and Viva Piņata: Trouble in Paradise. Fingers crossed it's got a new Perfect Dark game amongst all those in-development motion games.
