Now that Rare Soft­ware is back on form thanks to Sea Of Thieves, surely it’s time for the leg­endary de­vel­oper to res­ur­rect the mighty Viva Piñata? The 2006 Xbox 360 ex­clu­sive, and its 2008 se­quel Trou­ble In Par­adise, didn’t just look achingly gor­geous: they were in­no­va­tive and orig­i­nal, and thor­oughly kid-friendly. With the Xbox One’s un­der-the-bon­net grunt, their sim­u­la­tor sys­tems (in which you bred piñata-an­i­mals and tended a gar­den, of­ten with mor­bid re­sults) could reach new heights of so­phis­ti­ca­tion, and a new ver­sion could surely learn from Minecraft’s suc­cess? Come on, Mi­crosoft, get Rare on the case, and get them on the case swiftly.
