U.K. developer, Rare, the brains behind a long list of classic games, including Goldeneye 007, Banjo-Kazooie and Diddy Kong Racing, has told Videogamer.com that it will resurrect some of its old games using Microsoft's Project Natal technology.

Project Natal is the codename for Microsoft's motion-sensing and voice-recognition gadget for the Xbox 360 that takes the form of a bar that comes equipped with depth sensors, microphones and cameras.

Microsoft says that the technology will be unlike anything we've ever seen on other consoles. Project Natal will even be able to recognise our faces and sign us into Xbox Live automatically. Furthermore, it will recognise body motions, as well as controller movements.

"This goes way beyond the Wii," enthused Microsoft Vice President Shane Kim when Project Natal was first announced.

Rare is particularly excited about resurrecting one particular title, but didn't reveal the game in question.

“One in particular actually I think we can do an absolutely phenomenal, absolutely phenomenal version on with Natal. The interface, the way you interact with it – I think it would be an absolutely world-beating product. But we need to explore a little bit more in that direction,” design director George Andreas told Videogamer.

Looking at this long list of Rare games, your guess is as good as ours.
