Sounds like a rumor to me, why is this under news? Remember in Metroid Prime 3: Corruption, where they talked about Metroid Dread being near completion? Yeah, they were just playing around, sort of an inside joke, the game isn't actually coming. I have a feeling this is similar. Why the hell would they be working on sequels to all of those games simultaneously (especially Grabbed by the Ghoulies, which I'm relatively certain nobody cared about then and nobody cares about now).
Remember that vid where that guy started bashing Rare hard for that? Yea well, thats the reality.
I hope this is a hint that killer instint is coming out.K.I Gold was my fav beat em up game.
Jet Force Gemini would be sweet if the gameplay was like phantasy star online but with HD graphics. But the rest is kinda meh imo.
They're all going to be based on vehicle creation!!!
There is a difference between a rumor made by some random guy... and a rumor that developers took time to add/code into a game... I hope you understand the difference between the two.
I want BattleToads! Not KI!
rare remings me of Square-Enix A comapny that used to be amazing once and made nothing but amazing games Then lost it all. but still teases us to make us feel they still got it in them !
This is straight from RARE, not some weird sentence in a videogame, thats taken out of context: ___________ "Rare promises that there's "no secret team" working on sequels to classic Nintendo favourites, Killer Instinct and Jet Force Gemini, despite the hopes and cries of legions of fans. In reply to one such fan on its official site, Rare said: "Purely out of contractual obligation, no, we're not working on KI3, no, we don't have a secret team in the basement finishing off JFG2, no, we're not brainstorming an exciting sequel to It's Mr. Pants and traditionally we're not big players in the RPG market either." So all hopes are pinned on the upcoming 360-bound Banjo sequel being the ultra-awesome N64 sequel Nintendo peeps wish for. Elsewhere in the so-called Scribes section of the site, Rare says in reply to speculation regarding Donkey Kong 64 being ported to DS: "who knows what will happen?" ______ Woops, short term memory much fanboys? Haha
I read that in the demo... Everything else LOG said when you talked to him was sarcastic or was a joke, so I call fake. Thats just me though.
but a new Jet Force Gemini would be sweet! I loved the last one def one of the best gaming experiences for me.
Sadly guys, this most likely is another Rare joke. Kotaku and Maxconsole are really gullible for believing the LOG in Banjo. After playing Banjo Kazooie Nuts & Bolts, you can obviously not take the LOG seriously.
Killer Instinct = One of the least played fighting game franchises of all time, and for good reason.. it sucks.
That comment was filled with fail do you even have any proof of your BS claims? and if so please state them. why dont you attack the recent mortal combat games (the classics are excellent) they actually deserve it
No, Rict is right no one ever talked about Killer Instinct until it was a exclusive right for rare and is a 1st party for Microsoft. The games won't push hardware because it's a fighting game. Only Virtua Fighter is the only game that had the potential to push japan sales but that didn't happen. None of the other games will push hardware. Rare is the only 1st party developer that Microsoft has, so of course they be making games. And how on earth will they be able to make like 5 games including viva piniata. If they bring all those games in 2009 the games will all probably suck, but if they want those games to be good then not all the games will come out on the 360 because the 720 is coming out. Nothing special here next article!
@1.14 If you mean no one talks about Killer Instincts now, thats fair enough - its an old game which was released on the Super Nintendo. But, back in those days the game was amazing. Comparing Killer Instinct to games even like Mortal Combat in these recent years, Killer Instinct still wins hands down. Either you have bad taste as Rick Astley and/or you're just a pathetic fanboy.
This is a hint, why do we get all the hate and spam in here?
Well, anyone that knows RARE knows they have a track record of making a lot of games at the same time. I'm psyched about this... PS3 fanboys, troll away.
Oh no... what will I do when I call Gamestop now?! :(
That'll be so F***** funny lol! (for those who don't know, a certain website called 4chan once started calling Gamestop all day and asking if they had Battletoads, and the people there got pretty angry. Every now and then, they do it again. Here's a video : http://www.youtube.com/watc... just wait until he mentions Battletoads )
Makes Bob Dole wanna call and ask about battletoads. Lol, man that guy was pissed.
that was funny as hell
Dude, if I was the Gamestop employee I woulda been laughing my ass off. Mainly because the prank caller sounds like a little boy..
4chan = nerds
Yeah, I'm sure this is definitely true %D hurf durf
they're just messing with everyone, and how the hell would they work on 4 games at the same time lol
Especially when they're having trouble enough with making a single game.
bubbles man, that had me going : )
Pls pls ple let it be true that a new Jet Force Gemini game is in the works.I played it for a short while on the N64 and it was brilliant.As for Killer Instinct 3, there have been too many clues already, so i am around 70% convinced that we will see it next year.
ive wanted a jet force gemini sequel for a long time....would love to see th original pop up on live!
wow jet force gemini was epically challenging, it was flippin huge! first of all, you had the standard each character has their own level, then after the palace you had each character can go to any level they want, thus opening the door to more secrets (and in jet force a secret isn't just a room with a bunch of items in it) and then after you thought you won they drop the giant bombshell on you that you have to rescue every single tribal. god damn that was hard, seriously one of the most underated and best games I have ever played, mixing up platforming with a 3rd person shooter. ReRelease on XBLA or Virtual Console please, please, please.
Id buy a new battle toads right now, even it it got horrible reviews. I LOVED battletoads on the nes. that was the funnest co-op game ever back in the day.
hell is my new Perfect Dark?
Rumored in development numerous times, lets hope they use a better graphics engine this time. The PDZ engine was good when it came to environments, but the characters looked horrible!
don't count on rare making a good shooter again, everyone important that worked on goldeneye/pd is working at free radical now, but I mean timesplitters is still great, it feels and plays like goldeneye and pd and free radical actually know how to make a game 60fps unlike rare, seriously which rare game has not had framerate problems since the n64, it's great they push a console to it's limits but it loses something when the framerate constantly dips. Damn you microsoft, why didn't you make a console with a more powerful processor and more RAM than focus on the graphics processor, a bad move in retrospect.
yea im sure free radical made it, just look at their AAA game haze lol.
Perfect Dark Zero was a great game, technically, the lighting is still very good. Some textures are still very good. The only flaws I saw with Perfect Dark Zero was that everyone moved too slowly, the cover system was near pointless because your upper body was still vulnerable and it was so damned hard to use, the roll feature was stupid and that's what everyone does now, it's like super slow Gears of War with ray guns. That aside, Perfect Dark Zero was a very enjoyable game, played it to death before Gears of War came out. If they fixed Perfect Dark Zero flaws, used Banjo's graphics engine, it could very well be one of the best FPSes ever. I think if they're going to keep the cover system and the roll feature, they should put it in first person to make it less useful.
"Rare drop a massive bombshell hidden in Banjo Kazooie" After dropping a massive flop upon the globe.
I bet you it outsells LBP.
Rare is not a good developer anymore, I will not be looking forward to their new killer instinct
This is why MS first party titles >>>> Sonys first party titles. Bring on the new killer instinct and battle toads baby.
Sony reinvents older IPs all the time.
Well I completely disagree, sony first party moves games forward. MS just throws out the same formula.
It doesn't make much sense, since Rare have yet to produce a good game on a Microsoft console.
Because all of these are really really crappy games: http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g... http://www.metacritic.com/g...

It's sad that reviewers didn't like Banjo, it has to be the most underrated game this generation. The graphics are sweet, the vehicle customization is insane, the game itself is long as hell, it has lots of charm and humor to it. I don't see what the flaws were, it seems half the reviewers didn't like the fact that Banjo wasn't a platformer. If you play the game to the end, you would know that there are platforming elements, as you get all your moves back from the old games. Personally I'd give it a 9.1, the difficulty of some challenges and some FPS dips are problems, but not big enough for me not to love this game.
Electronic Gaming Monthly (SAME THING AS 1UP) - 69/100 "This is a game people should be playing years after it comes out, online and off." Not ONE review from EGM gave B-K: Nuts and Bolts a D+.. You had: A- B- C
Battle toads? Sh*t....time to get my a** handed down to me again....
Well RARE has been a bit off this gen, lets watch Jet Force Gemini become an RPG... Lets just say I'm no longer excited for RARE games...
Awesome looks to be another Great Year ahead for xbox360.
The only Bombshell they have dropped, is its not as good as you think it is... Banjo kazooie that is. As for "Gears of War 2 (GOTY 08) OFFICAILLY AAA EXCLUSIVE XBOX360 GAME" Exclusive Yes. Goty, NO. The only option, YES. EDIT: However I've heard FABLE II is pretty good.
Gears of Wars 2 on PC. Exclusive my arse like all X360 games.
IM CRAZY MOTHERF*CKERS UWWWWWWWWAHAUHUHAUHUAHAU LOOK AT ME IM CRAAEZZZZYYYYYYYYYYY AUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUHAUHAUAH. What the f*ck? I never cared for Killer Instinct or Battletoads. Jet Force Gemini ... that was a great game, im looking forward to this. If its true. :D
Banjo itself is the biggest bomb that Rare dropped. And it bombed BAD.
Have some bubbles Micheal. You creepy motha-phukka!
aw man i loved that game on 64,man 64 had alot of good games, oh well i hope this game would come to ps3 but it most likely wont
I did too. I'd like to see this game on the PS3, but it aint gong to happen.
Massive bombshell = more series' to ruin. This new Rare team has destroyed what Doak and the previous Rare had worked years to achieve.
Well this is likely true, since Rare have released at least two games every year so far so two of those game will defiantly be coming in 2009 Looks like 09 will be another great year for the 360
you mean gamers? because its the gamers that play the console right?
Why no Conker?!
I saw him say that about Killer Instinct, Battletoads, and Jet Force Gemini in the demo as well. Except he said "Oh I'm just kidding" on the next line of dialogue.
Damn, but I knew they wouldn't announce that many titles in a game. There is still hope left for Conker :)
"Oh, I'm just kidding" could be there to surprise you. Do you honestly think Rare is not going to make their games? Hell, they don't even have that right anymore rofl.. that's microsoft's job now.
Don't go having yourself a wetdream, they are more likely the classics games that they are planning to bring to XBL arcade.
I doubt rare in there current form could do a JFG sequel that could surpass the original .dont mean they cant prove us wrong....i do hope they get back to form though becuase they made some awesome games back in the 90`s.
