Pro-Am 64

While a small and dedicated team had started development on Wild Cartoon Kingdom, the size and scope of the title required a call to arms. As new members joined the team, they drew inspiration from Rare's older properties. Seeking to revitalize the previously established R.C. Pro-Am series after six years of dormancy, Rare designed Pro-Am 64 as the fourth entry on the Nintendo 64. After presenting Pro-Am 64 to Nintendo, Rare was encouraged to integrate Diddy Kong into the main lead, ostensibly replacing Timber the tiger as the would-be mascot and becoming Diddy Kong Racing.
