Rare Responds To Fan’s Request Of A Banjo-Kazooie Remake

A fan of Nintendo 64 title Banjo-Kazooie asked its developer, Rare, via Twitter, whether there is a possibility for a Nintendo 3DS remake of the game. Rather than replying with a definitive answer, and although it’s not very likely, Rare told the fan that anything’s possible. I, for one, would love to see a remake of Banjo-Kazooie, as it is one of my all-time favorite 3D platformers and Nintendo 64 games. (3DS, Banjo Threeie)

Translation:

"yeah, we remember a time when we made games that people gave a shit about. We'd really love to do something like that but right now we're slaves to Kinect and we're doing our best to do whatever Microsoft tells us... so don't hold your breath. oh yeah!.. and thanks for rubbing it in."

They're pretty much owned by Microsoft, so what did you expect?
They're only doing their job.

Actually, from what I understand, Nintendo let them do what they wanted to do. And they actually "liked" working for Nintendo.

There was little to no oversight on Goldeneye and so I'm not really sure where you're coming from.

Who the hell is going to play Banjo in 2013? All this people asking for it probably won't even buy it when it comes to it. We Xbox owners want them violence give us Conker or Killer Instinct.

Which is why they should be bought back by Nintendo.

The Banjo Nutz and Boltz game on the X360 was a pretty good game IMO. I wouldn't mind seeing a new X720 Banjo game to crater to the younger audience. But Killer Instinct, Conker, And Perfect Dark should be their priority.

WHy a remake??? just make a new Banjo game for the new Xbox. Keep it an on-foot platformer and then feel free to innovate where they deem it necessary.
