Just in case anyone hasn't heard, Rare is currently working on a new Banjo-Kazooie game for the 360! If you haven't played the older Banjo-Kazooies on the N64, Banjo-Kazooie was an adventure game that was very quirky and cartoony and at the same time very humorous. Banjo was the stronger character (the bear) who used his strength (and yellow shorts) to fight the various monsters you encounter while Kazooie (the red bird) was often used as a weapon or tools. He could be used to peck enemy's, fly, swim, and other various useful things. Kazooie is often stuffed into Banjo's blue backpack... i forgot the exact reason why.

But now Rare is making a new one (which would be the 3rd installment). Rare hasn't released any information about this game's story or specific information. The only thing they have released is an official trailer showing the new character models, but some similarities to the past game.

-also discuss-
Has anyone ever played the old Banjo-Kazooie games before?

Most people have known since last E3, when the trailer you posted was shown. So this isn't new =)

Since it is still early days, I hope they decide to improve the character design on Banjo. He's too blocky and doesn't look as familiar as Kazooie does. It should be a great game though, so long as it comes out this decade.

I know its not that new of news but I dont think that many people have been aware of it. I loved the Banjo-kazooie series alot and I didnt even know (but I also didnt see all of E3...).

Also I agree, I know Banjo-kazooie is suppose to look cartoony but those character models are too geometrical.

That trailer is fucking awsome. I loved Banjo Kazooie, and I would skip school and wait in line to get this game as its that awsome.

The first game was so comical. I want to go dish out my N64 or go buy one to play the first game >.<

I loved the first one. Must have completed it 5 or 6 times. :)

The second one was slightly to ambitious and tried to do too much...hope the 360 version doesn't just cram things in for the sake of it...

I also saw the trailer a while back but havent heard anything since, to bad :( But i loved the earlier games on the 64. Personally i cant wait to find out more bout this game, it is going to be sweet.

PS, Has anyone heard anything bout this game. If you have any info please....

Rare have a habit of releasing very little information about games still in the early development stages, since it was announced they have been working on the two Viva Pinata games so they probably didn't get a whole lot done on BK3.

There is speculation that it might be a remake of the two previous games into one title with updated graphics etc. But that doesn't sound like it would be as good as a brand new game. Although Rare remade Conker for the Xbox so it isn't out of the question.

I guess we wait until E3 08 when Rare will shock us all with the information that it will be out within a week and will be the greatestestest game ever.

man i remember i would spend hours looking for those stupid honeycombs or jigsaw puzzles, i dont recall which of the two was the one you had to collect one hundred of, but soooo many hours were spent on this game.

hopefully rare releases a remake of goldeneye 007 and killer instinct! i doubt it but i can only wish :(

And Rare don't have the right to James Bond games anymore. EA snatched up and subsequently ruined that franchise.

Ok just one question before I say something else, who is Banjo and who is Kazooi? :p

I played a bit on N64, enough at least because I still remember the game. I had a lot of fun, but I was a Playstation One's fan at this time (Stay quiet on this information please :p).

I've played both Banjo-Kazooie & Banjo-Tooie. I hated Banjo-Kazooie, but loved Banjo-Tooie.

Banjo is the bear, and Kazooie is the Bird who stays in his backpack.

But in Banjo Tooie, Kazooie could change between bird & a dragon. The dragon version was sweet.

Played this game NON-STOP back in the day. By far, my favorite game of all time. Still play it to this day. Too bad we haven't heard any news on this game...what-so-ever.

Heard about this game last fall and can't wait for more info or even better a release date is given. I remember back when when I was in 5th grade I couldn't stop playing the Banjo Kazooie games. I hope this game is way better than any of the other games that Rare has created since being bought out by Microsoft.

If Rare did that, i'd be so pissed off. Seems unlikely or why would the developing be taking them so long.

There was a rumour a while back that the original banjo kazzoie would be released onto xbox live arcade as well which would have kicked so much ass. Can't remember where I read that though...:( That seems a bit unlikely as well now...

what he said
first game = perfection (imo...loved mario64 but banjo really rocked the boat for me)
second game, was bizarely too epic for my tastes

as for banjo 1 begin released on xbox live...cant see it happening...surely nintendo own the rights to at least that game?
god i would so love that though.....ohhh man...game could have some incredable achievements!

surely nintendo own the rights to at least that game?

Microsoft owns rare, rare owns banjo, so no nintendo does not own banjo.

Microsoft owns rare, rare owns banjo, so no nintendo does not own banjo.

yeah but that game was released on the nintendo 64, wouldnt that mean that nintendo would hold at least some of the licence over that game?
although it did work for conker i geuss...
either way....i'd still love to see it on xbox live arcade!

08-18-2007, 11:22 PM
In response to the question of who owns what...

Keep in mind Viva Pinata (a Rare game on the Microsoft 360) will be making an appearance on the Nintendo DS. So these sorts of things can work themselves out.

although...it would be much cooler with 1000 points! :)
