Let’s go back to the late 90’s for a second. It was a dark and stormy night and all you had to keep you and your friends entertained is a Nintendo 64 with several cartridges, you pick one from random, that game was Turok 2: Seeds of Evil. The Turok games on the Nintendo 64 were considered revolutionary by many as it broke away from the ‘corridor shooters’ that were popular on home consoles, such as DOOM. Though Goldeneye is considered the ultimate shooter for the N64, Turok still holds its own in many gamer’s hearts.
If you were one of those gamers but sold your copies of Turok, then you’re in luck as you could relive those ends nights of shooting those pesky dinos. Classic Media (a subsidiary of Dremworks) currently own the rights to the Turok franchise and have recently said to various fans that they are interested in reviving the franchise by bringing some of the classic games to the Virtual Console for Nintendo Wii U.
