Ex-Rare Employees Prepare to Make Spiritual Successor to Banjo-Tooie

A group of former Rare staff members have reunited to create a game in the style of their classic series Banjo-Kazooie. The series hasn’t seen a game since the release of Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts, which hasn’t been received very well by players of the first two games.

The game, of course, won’t be Banjo-Threeie, but will instead be an original game in the same style as the series. This team, not being a part of Rare, is expected to release this game on Wii U, which Rare can’t do because they are currently owned by Microsoft.

So far, the twitter account has confirmed that they have artist Steven Hurst and composer Grant Kirkhope on board for the project, as well as several other game devs. It will likely be made in the Unity engine and is going to be a 3D platformer.

So by now, I think the rumors of Nintendo buying Rare back have been dispelled, but now we have a team of ex-Rare devs working on a spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie, an absolute classic to the Nintendo 64 library, and what does the internet have to say about it?

I think we may need to prioritize better.
