Possible Banjo & Kazooie spiritual successor

Quote:
Ex-Rare Devs Planning Banjo-Tooie Spiritual Successor

Core members of the original team have expressed their desire to continue the franchise's legacy.


by Luke Karmali
September 27, 2012



Ex-Rare employees have apparently reunited to try and create a spiritual successor to Banjo-Tooie.
The group, which includes series composer Grant Kirkhope and artist Steven Hurst, have set up a new Twitter account under the handle Mingy Jongo to gauge support.

That same kind of humour, silly characters, fun game play, great tunes and all that stuff.

It's unclear what format the game would be released on, though as Rare was bought by Microsoft and is currently helming its Kinect Sports series, it's not unreasonable to think it'll be an Xbox exclusive.
Not much is known about the project as yet, but we can glean some information from the account's tweets.
As regards to what engine will be used in the new game, it seems the team is interested in using Unity as they've tweeted, "#unity will probably be perfect for our spiritual successor. I'm thinking keeping level of detail and googly eyes close to the original..."
There are also mutterings of a Kickstarter project, as well as the clarification that the game wouldn't be a new title in the Banjo-Kazooie series, but rather a brand new IP that shares " that same kind of humour, silly characters, fun game play, great tunes and all that stuff."
The original Banjo-Kazooie released on N64 in 1998 and a sequel, Banjo-Tooie, followed in 2000. Both of these games were later re-released via XBLA in 2008 and 2009 respectively.
If you're interested in supporting the team in their endeavours, make sure to follow their Twitter account to show your support.

Why not just make an actual sequel? Then people can forgive Rare for Nuts & Bolts.

Same reason why Platinum made Bayonetta instead of DMC4/DmC. They may be the original creators, but that as long as Capcom(or in this case Microsoft) owns the rights to the original series, then they can't do jack
