Rare Hint New Banjo Is Not A 'Traditional Platformer'

The QnA style "stupid Rare letters page" known as Scribes has just been updated on Rare's site. Without doubt, the most interesting stuff to come out of the update it some new hints as to what the new Banjo-Kazooie will be all about.

am not so enthusiastic for the multiplayer i think sometimes devs jst need to put their foot down and make a great single player experience. I am however quite interested in the single player. Banjo kazooie was great on the n64. Hopefully they take it in the right direction should get a nice sense of nostalgia playing this.

I'm sure the single player game will be as good in Banjo 3 as it has been in the other Banjo games being that Rare knows what they are doing. It's not like it's a brand new IP, and are not sure what they want the single player game to be. They know what the fans loved and hated, so I'm sure the single player will be great.

Is it a sidescroller?

RecSpec3718d ago

You're both wrong, it's either a RTS or a rhythm game. "Banjo Hero" anyone?

BloodySinner3718d ago

Evidently, I was being sarcastic.
