And here we have Rareware!
Spoiler : Rareware :
Image
Rareware, or "Rare" as her friends call her, used to be Nintendo's spunky and innovative best friend in the old days. She helped Nintendo out a lot, and the two were almost unseperable. But after Microsoft bought Rare's contract, her former success has plummeted. She's stuck with making sports and Kinect games at Microsoft's place, looking for an opportunity to finally get the creative juices flowing again. Her relationship with Nintendo's a little strained nowadays, unfortunately.

Like her design. IMO the suits seem a bit restrictive to bringing out the full personality of each character, but I get that you want to push the idea that they are companies.

That said, Nintendo-Rare rendition of "Without You" plz complete with MS!Plankton

Nice design but... Uh. Just what is a rare ware? Never heard of the company, I'm afraid. -_-"

By the way, what are your other planned characters?

Rareware is the company that made Banjo-Kazooie. I think that's their most well-known series, at any rate.

They're the reason the N64 didn't totally die.

One of my favourite (well, former favourite) companies, an unexpected and nice surprise. Also good to see a girl other than Nintendo in there.

Yeah, much more obscure than Level 5 and Spikechunsoft. Fo shame, got.

Glad you like the design, guys.

Rareware made BK, Goldeneye, Donkey Kong Country, Donkey Kong 64, Conker's Bad Fur Day, Killer Instinct, and more. After being bought by Microsoft they made Grabbed by the Ghoulies and some Kinect sports game.
Yeah it's a little depressing.

So can someone clarify why everyone hates Grabbed by the Ghoulies? I never really got that. I enjoyed it.

WHAT THE F&CK IS A SONIC

Anyways, not bad. Punchline could be a bit better but overall pretty funny.

But you already knew that. I just like the sound of my own text.

Got, I suppose you can't upload your comics to imgur now, can you? :P
