Former Rare artist post some concept art for Rare’s cancelled Xbox 360 Banjo kart racing game

fauxbuzz-"The game was supposed to be a compliation of Rare characters from a variety of Rare franchises. In the artwork, you see Vela from Jet Force Gemini, Banjo from Banjo-Kazooi, Joanna Dark from Perfect Dark, Sabrewulf from Killer Instinct, " (Xbox 360, Xbox One)

The concept art looks really cool.love the characters.

I hope Phil spencer ,Phil harrison and Ken lobb can reqch out and get some of these guys back to rare. The xbox division has changed a lot since they left.im sure they would be happy to return home.

Well if u actually ask me , Microsoft wasn't there actual home /: it was nintendo but I'm still happy that if they can bring some devs back , it will be good

they prefered to make Kinect games instead.
what a waste of talent!
i think xbox owners deserve a karting game.
i'm so glad i have a PS3 cause we got MNR and LBPK which are really good

Lol preferred? You really believe that? MS forced Rare to make Kinect games. MS destroyed one of the greatest game developers of all time.

Would it be so hard to finish this and port it to the Xbox One?
SLUG  +   343d ago
no its not hard at all we do not want any more kinect games on the xbox one do not make it like a wii u ok bring the old rare games back we need Jet Force Gemini and others too
you no of the Fighter Within its a kinect game this is the game for the wii u not xbox one games like this we do not want we want rare games

Well surely the gist of this idea became incorporated in to Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts. A game that, whilst quite pretty, was too clever for its own good. We're not all mechanically minded.

Why can't Rare come up with a game that's a bit like an Uncharted style game only with their back catalogue of characters instead. Cooper as hero for instance. Puzzles a bit like Conker's Bad Fur Day style. Shooting elements like Perfect Dark. Kinect or normal controller.

" Why can't Rare come up with a game that's a bit like an Uncharted style game only with their back catalogue of characters instead."

Because when Microsoft smells the scent of greatness coming from the Rare 'Dungeon', they tighten the thumbscrews, open the Iron Maiden and whip them back into kinect development.

It's hard to put into words how much I want to play this, but I'll try: a lot!!

That was quite easy actually.

Captain Qwark 9  +   343d ago
but kinect sports!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ugh lol wtf are they doing at MS. rare could have been their greatest asset. this, a new conker, a new platformer banjo plus th enuts and bolts, pinata, KI, battletoads, kameo sequel, new ips, etc....
BakPAin  +   343d ago
We might still see some of those games this gen. Fingers x!
Stoppokingme  +   343d ago
Why was this game cancelled again???

This concept takes crossover game characters and places them in the same arena. Now where have I seen that before?

I think I speak for a lot of gamers when I say we want the old Rare back.

Blast corps!!

If more people had bought Kameo, Viva Pinata and Banjo Nuts and Bolts Rare wouldn't be on Kinect duty.

Hey I did buy those games, bought Perfect Dark Zero too and Perfect Dark off XBLA..
SliceOfTruth888  +   343d ago
i used to think a smash rip off for microsoft would never work but now iam thinking battletoads, banjo, perfect dark, halo, conker, kameo, gears of war....an evil Blinx....now iam wondering why is this not being made.

Battletoad Game for the Marketplace... Banjo plataformer, and i see they own Jet Force Gemini... we need this games, is not all about FPS
Jdoki  +   343d ago
Considering all the IP Rare has (although not sure how much is owned by Nintendo), MS could be sat on a goldmine of good IP. why are they not using it properly (or at all)

Jet Force Gemini could easily have been a the Xbox competitor to Ratchet and Clank. Plus it would work perfectly as an online co-op game.

Banjo Kazooie needs to stick to platforming and take on Mario

Blast Corps was a very innovative and unique game. I'd love to see the scale of destruction that could be generated using more modern physics engines and XB1 horsepower

Kameo had some good ideas, but was a bit clunky / rough around the edges. With refinement a sequel could be great

Even a new Perfect Dark could be nice if handled properly.

I don't even care if MS use a different developer (after all, the core Rare team has long gone). Why are they not spinning these IP out to trusted developers?

Solid resurrections of Rare IP would get me very interested in purchasing an XB1. In fact, a new version of Blast Corp alone could be a killer app for me as it is one of my fave games of all time.

MS better have some good Rare related announcements at E3!!

I hope Rare gets a chance to revisit this idea of a game. I really enjoyed Diddy Kong Racing and I would love a new Go-Kart racer game from them.
ONI5  +   343d ago
Plus they could add some of the other lesser known MS characters to is like Blinx, Maw. Voodoo Vince and the Kung Fu Choas crew.
