Platinum Rebooting Kameo For Xbox One Is An "Interesting Idea", Says Spencer

Kamiya is "kind of busy on Scalebound" right now, though. (Kameo 2, Phil Spencer, PlatinumGames, Xbox One)

LOST ODYSSEY 2 PLEASE. Too Human 2 & snagging the Jade Empire IP from Bioware wouldn't hurt my feelings either.
Ausbo  +   601d ago
I wouldn't expect to see too human ever again. It sold bad and had a lot of negative publicity around it with the lawsuits and such.
Grown Folks Talk  +   601d ago
It wasn't great in any area, but every time I fired it up, I found myself playing for hours at a time. Just shorten the death animation & i'm all for a sequel.
XiSasukeUchiha  +   602d ago
This game looks nice!
Jdoki  +   602d ago
Considering the E3 briefing had no announcement from Rare - let's hope they are working on it, and a reboot of Blast Corps. And a reboot of Jet Force Gemini. :)
gamerfan0909  +   601d ago
Rare probably has stuff for gamescon or they were simply not ready to present. They hired a bunch of people then fired most of the kinect guys, so they're probably working on some newer games. Personally I'd like to see a new Perfect Dark remake.

No more Remakes for the year. . Each console should have a max or 3 remakesa year limit.

Take that money and resources and make a new ip.

You can do both.
Mikelarry  +   601d ago
they could but you must agree we are seeing more remakes than new IP's lately and i fear its only going to get worse
Jdoki  +   601d ago

Yeah, it is slightly concerning.

I can see why it's being done though.

This gen is turning out to be particularly bad for launch window / Year 1 titles - so churning out HD / Remastered versions is a nice way to fill the gaps with well established IP. They must be quicker to produce than new games.

"they could but you must agree we are seeing more remakes than new IP's lately and i fear its only going to get worse"

That's not even true. Also this conversation came up from Spencer just saying it was interesting...Not that they are actually making remakes.

There has been many new IP already this generation: Watch Dogs, Sunset Overdrive, BloodBourne, The Order, DriveClub, The Division, Scalebound, The Crew, Ryse, ect.

Remakes are fine. There are so many people who haven't experienced great games from the past.

@ JB

the last of us
Tomb raider
halo master chief collection
god of war collection
halo spartan assault
phantom dust
crackdown ( its not crackdown 3 as its a reboot to the franchise... remake)

there are "talks" about mass effect and sleeping dogs.

i can see there is market for them as people who missed out on these titles but lately with every new game announcement we hear at least a couple are remakes

I'm not seeing the issue here? Like I said you can do both.
christocolus  +   601d ago

Crackdown isn't a reboot. It has a new story and will be taking place in a different city and with all new locations and characters. There are several articles on that online. Just like Halo5 I think it will be subtitled before release.

OT: kamiya needs to do a zelda style game for the xbox one.

Yeah these aren't remaster these are either sequeals or restarting the franchise.
truefan1  +   601d ago
@Mike Laryy don't you even try to downplay the upcoming XB1 games. Phantom Dust and Crackdown are both entirely new games and Halo MCC is a 10 year anniversary of Halo 2.

On topic: I never Kameo would be an interesting title to bring back, XB1 needs more adventure games. Nothing wrong with boosting an already great variety.

Lastly a small tidbit I noticed was that Scalebound might have a multiplayer coop, I rewatched the trailer and it looks like friends came to help him out. We will really be putting that xbl subscription to use big time this gen.

Wow.. they really don't trust Rare to do anything other than Kinect games huh...
gamerfan0909  +   601d ago
Rare just laid off almost their entire kinect staff like a month ago.
Activemessiah  +   601d ago
So what's left?
Jdoki  +   601d ago

Rumour has it all you'll find left are dusty corridors, cobwebbed computers, and if you listen carefully the quiet sobbing of Conker, Kameo, Banjo, and Joanna Dark....
#6.1.2 (Edited 601d ago ) | Agree(1) | Disagree(6) | Report
christocolus  +   601d ago

Yeah. about 16 people were laid off but I don't think its their entire kinect team,you know some of those guys still worked on non kinect games in the past.


Prior to the layoffs rare had a staff strenght of over 160. I think they are still recruiting though.

I'd rather have them keep doing new IP and their own sequels , no thanks
coolbeans  +   601d ago
Why not just have Rare make a sequel? The gameplay from the first was inventive and is a good base to build upon.
gamerfan0909  +   601d ago
Well, because, you know, he never said Rare wasn't going to be developing it. Some person on twitter asked if Kamiya could do a remake and he said it was interesting. I doubt they even do a second Kameo.
coolbeans  +   601d ago
The question was aimed at the twitter post. Seems like such an out-of-the-blue one to make.
#8.1.1 (Edited 601d ago ) | Agree(0) | Disagree(0) | Report
Jdoki  +   601d ago
Yeah, get Rare on it (if they're not already).

MS definitely need a Zelda style game on XB1 - this would be good, or a new Banjo Kazooie title.
gamerfan0909  +   601d ago
Below is a zelda style game coming out in 2015 exclusively to xbox one and PC.
Jdoki  +   601d ago
I'm very intrigued by Below as I played Sword & Sorcery on iPad, but Below looks to scratch more of the old school 2D top down Zelda itch to me (even though this game appears to mix perspective).

I'm (also) after the Ocarina of Time style that was more in-line with Kameo / Banjo.

Or failing that, Ubi should finally get Beyond Good and Evil 2 out the door - that game is quickly turning in to another Last Guardian!
SonyKong64  +   601d ago
viva Pinata and banjo please = )
Summons75  +   601d ago
Gamescon they will bring Joanna Dark, Banjo, and Viva Pinata onto the screen and will tell all fans to F off and make their own like they did with Conker....Rare needs to sell off those IPS to devs who actually care about them and will give great reboots.
Pancit_Canton  +   601d ago
Lol. Microsoft trust the third party more than their first party. It's sad and pathetic at the same time. They rely so much on the second and third party to create an new IP for them to claim as their own. Gears of War, Halo and Titan fall.
christocolus  +   601d ago
Lol. Are you joking cos your comment is funny as hell. Lionhead, 343i, blactusk, turn10 and even Rare all have projects in development and sony, ms and even nintendo need to work with 2nd and 3rd party devs from time to time cos you can't create all the content yourself. You are so funny. Lol.

OT: hope kamiya is allowed to make a zelda type game for xbox one. It would be really cool.
BigBosss  +   601d ago
How about rebooting Conker while you are at it please.
JBSleek  +   601d ago
Why are people so sure that Conker will do well if it was rebooted?
BigBosss  +   601d ago
Because it's Conker
Darkfist  +   601d ago
go play Project Spark
incendy35  +   601d ago
Would love to see another Kameo but only after they make another Perfect Dark. Yes, they messed up on the last Perfect Dark really badly, but Joanna needs to carry on. Loved the rumor of making Perfect Dark into a 3rd person adventure game a al Tomb Raider.
0P-Tigrex  +   601d ago
HAA. I remember this being my first game on the 360. Xbox does have alot of interesting old games hidden their library that desperately need to make a comeback. If they remake any game it should be Viva Piñata.
namEuser  +   601d ago
Ahh Kameo or Beyond Good and Evil 2.....u can keep Perfect Dark, it wasnt all that great IMO...had for 360 and traded it in like 2weeks later lol
SLUG  +   601d ago
thats sound really good game cant wait to have it they will make it more like a zedla game on the xbox one kameo is the best choice for this to happen
stamps79  +   601d ago
no need to reboot Kameo, just make a Kameo 2, I just want to see the series continue.
N4GJD  +   601d ago
Kameo 2 has needed to happen for a long time! Big fan of the original!
