After a series of teasers, an exclusive Banjo game for Xbox One looks likely.
I hope so. We need more platformers! Ori was the best game I have played all generation and one of my favourite games of all time.
Yeah, we definitely need to see a return of platformers
lol hell no! At this point I'd rather the just let it die, no one from that original team is even at Rare anymore... http://www.ign.com/articles... http://www.siliconera.com/2...
I would rather let them give it a try and hopefully surprise us with an amazing game then just let it die, no one really knows what they are capable of outside of Kinect games they could be better then the original Rare for all we know.
"Whatever these ex-Rare employees come up with...it wont be Banjo and Kazooie, which is what we want to see" Bayonetta, Evil Within, Mighty 9 all say otherwise. A rose of another name.... I'm a HUGE fan of Rare's work..ie per-MS take over. The ip means nothing to me, the gameplay by the creators is why I actually wanted a sequel. Not purely based on IP alone. Same reason I don't care for the new DmC...its not by its original team and its very much feels that way too. I want something by the team, not merely using the IP. I'd like to see the new Rare try, but I rather actually play what the ex-Rare devs are working on as they are the reason behind the magic in those games... Would you play a Mario game that wasn't done by the original team? Consider what I want isn't merely just to have a game of the same name. Try to be fan of the creators vs a fan of just a name... "even with this new game made by Ex-Rare guys, wouldn't another B&K platformer be good and satisfy what the OP is talking about?" What the op wants is what I wanted years ago...that just isn't going to happen at this point. I think he wants a true sequel, but those developers are no longer at Rare. I wanted a DMC sequel to 3 in terms of feel and style...never happened. Got Bayonetta..never looked back. I wanted a Resident Evil that was just about survival and not an action game where you buy ammo and health..RER2 came close..., but got Evil Within and never looked back. I stopped asking for those things and started following the developers instead. Bayonetta very much is DMC3's gameplay successor, Evil Within is very much an old school RE with RE4 gameplay. Its what I wanted, merely not from the IP I originally wanted it from. I'm sorry but a Banjo 3 (what ever they call it lol) may not be any where near what it would have been with its original core team. I'm sure many will see this more clearly when Kojima leaves Konami. @JoGam- Hopefully it will be, but I'll reserve my excitement until I play and feel it. again..DmC, RE lol IPs that have been done by other teams haven't really fared so well with me.
Hey Tim, I knew you would be in here. Banjo Kazooie is ur game. Hopefully the game will be exactly what the people want.
@EDMIX "no one from that original team is even at Rare anymore..." And?
I really don't understand this line of thinking. Franchises change hands all the time... Sometimes there are successes, sometimes their are failures, but nothing is guarunteed. To assume that a new banjo would be bad because they team is different is baseless... There are much older franchises that are still alive today despite developer turnover ...
@AngelicIceDiamond -"no one from that original team is even at Rare anymore..." And?" (Jumps over desk in astonishment) @timotim - if you feel just. @mhunterjr- "I really don't understand this line of thinking" yet "sometimes their are failures" lol. That might be one of the reasons for concern... "To assume that a new banjo would be bad because they team is different is baseless" Didn't say it would be bad, but I clearly still question if they can pull it off. Historically a team doing another ip that wasn't worked on by them originally doesn't really fare too well. Like I said...I'll play a wait and see with this one, but I'm not holding my breath.
I also want to add in. Why would Phil just leave Rare to do Kinect games? So what your sayin is Kinect has new talent so Rare shouldn't touch on their old Ip's is that right? According to you Rare should just stay stagnant and continue to develop Kinect Sports all Gen long right? Someone like you would'nt want one of the most respected teams to not excel you just want them to stay where they're at, ball and chain and become more irrelevant in in the industry. Rare's been a slave to Kinect thanks to Don Mattrick. In other news Phil actually believes in the Rare's team to develop some interesting projects which is why they are free from Kinect. @EDMIX Nope Any dev thats committed to making great games deserves a chance. I don't know what your talking about. So I say to you AGAIN and?
"I also want to add in. Why would Phil just leave Rare to do Kinect games? So what your sayin is Kinect has new talent so Rare shouldn't touch on their old Ip's is that right? According to you Rare should just stay stagnant and continue to develop Kinect Sports all Gen long right?" The deep lolz. Never said any of that bud, not even slightly. The gun...its clear you've jumped it. What I'm saying is purely from a nostalgic gamer's perspective and Tim makes it clear he is ok with the spiritual successor and a new Banjo so its all good. I would legit not jump to conclusions so fast, I agree with Phil bring back that IP regardless of teams as it makes sense, KI made sense and I feel Banjo as a platformer does too, Conker too while where at it. Hell I would say I'm more angry that we haven't had that sooner. Conker's Bad Fur day fits the XB brand Sooooooooo well and I feel they need the platformer with Banjo too. Business wise, its a great idea and I don't believe I ever stated anything in regards to the business aspect of this decision. "Nope Any dev thats committed to making great games deserves a chance." Never said they didn't and mind you I agree with the statement made with "sometimes their are failures" as that is actually what I'm worried about. "Rare's been a slave to Kinect thanks to Don Mattrick" I'm not really too sure about that as I've never read any thing that suggested that. Kinect when first released needed a developer like Rare so I see where they come in, in terms so development anyway. Rare is also a large team, they can likely do both.
Guess we'll see at E3, we very well could see a new Banjo this year
Maybe not a release but I have a feeling we will see Banjo-Kazooie at E3.
There are way to many hints and talk about Banjo lately for there not to be a new game coming soon. Was never a huge Banjo fan but I am curious on how a new banjo would be for the Xbox One. Looking forward to seeing what MS has in store.
As long is it's an actual Banjo game. Not nuts and bolts 2.
Screw that I'll take EITHER. I just need to take Banjo and Kazooie on another adventure. Don't care if it's Nuts & Bolts stylized. Aslong as Gregg Mayles is their (Creator of Banjo)... We'll get a good experience.
It better, if not this year next year for sure or else... there is pretty much nothing I can do about it.
Would be a big game! I hope so!
They should remaster them and let us change from one version to another like Halo does, that would be awesome, plus BK Threie
It'll release next year and Battletoads this year.
Why does the article keep mentioning Sony rebooting Crash Bandicoot? Doesn't Activision currently hold the rights? So unless Sony paid them off a crash game would more than likely be Multi-platform right? Obviously MS holds rights to Banjo...
You may be right with that one…Either way the PS4 will probably have the 1st major platformer of the 2 consoles with Ratchet set to drop this summer/fall
@timotim I'd be concerned about the quality of the Rare IP since very few of the OG Rare developers are still there
Just as long as it is not another Viva Pinata game down the road. I am good for another Banjo Kazooie game. If Microsoft were really nice they should release a Jet Force Gemini game as well.
Doesn't really matter now with Project Ukulele on the way.
It would be cool i think. a fun 3D platformer is a nice change.
Phil, give us BK and BK2 (XBLA) on X1 please, it would be an amazing warm-up!
I bet we see a teaser at e3 and it releases sometiMe in 2016. Like others have stated my money is on a Battletoads game released this year. Will be a Xbox arcade game, or whatever they call them now, can't wait!
Another BK game would be great but I'd prefer another Blast Corps and Jet Force Gemini.
Banjo and conker are two games i really want to see get sequels For the time being i will get state of decay yose, hyper light drifter, cuphead, batman arkham knight, ac victory and the flame in the flood. If you dont know about cuphead or hyper light drifter check them out they look amazing
Day one buy whenever they release
