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.
Banjo won't be a shooter (unless we sell no copies like Ghoulies and out of desperation give him a gun for the next game) but it also won't be a traditional platformer," reads the update. "We somewhat grandly like to think that it will be a different take on the genre. Some would say a brave gamble but I'm confident it's the right decision,"
