The classic Rare logo (1994-2003)

Rare, Ltd. (also known as Rareware and simply Rare) is a British video game company that currently makes games for Microsoft's Xbox One. Before Microsoft bought rights to Rare, they had the rights to Nintendo's Donkey Kong character. They are responsible for bringing him back into now a playable role (in actuality his grandson is the playable character in his own adventure - Donkey Kong Country while the original Donkey Kong became playable for the first time in a main game in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze). Therefore, Rare are to thank for the Donkey Kong Universe as it is known today, with characters such as Diddy Kong and the Kremlings. Nintendo now owns the rights to all characters in the Donkey Kong Universe as Rare moved to Microsoft.
