Reports came from Nintendo today that the relationship with Rare is over. Rare will now go multiplatform and develop for other systems. Nintendo said this came after the drop in software sales from Rare in fiscal year 2001. It reportdly dropped 9.5% over fiscal year 2000. Star Fox Adventures will be the last Rare exclusive for Nintendo. This does not mean Rare will stop developing for Gamecube it just means it will widen its customers.
