Project Spark developer Team Dakota has announced Conker’s Big Reunion as an ongoing episodic series included in the platformer.

The game stars our favorite squirrel trying to prepare for a 10 year reunion at the Cock and Plucker pub located in the Panther Kingdom and focused “a washed-up Conker trying to get himself together.”

Chris Seavor returns as Conker’s voice, and Rare provided the original assets to Conker’s Bad Fur Day to Team Dakota.

“Rare gave us all the original assets we’ve needed, including the original music,” creative director Henry Sterchi told IGN. “Pretty much everything from tone, to scenarios, to music, etc. Rare has given feedback and help all along the way, it’s been tremendous.

“The team was really excited because there was a lot of love and nostalgia around Conker. One of our designers was even a tester on the original way back. Conker broke so much new ground back in the day. From breaking the 4th wall, to the quality and richness of the characters and world they created, to the humor, and what was one of – if not the first real reluctant hero.”

Project Spark players will also be able to download a Conker Creation Pack which comes with over 300 assets.

Both content packages will release April 23 individually and in bundle form via the Project Spark marketplace.
