A group of former Rare developers have announced plans for a "spiritual successor" to platforming classic Banjo Kazooie.
In September 2012 a rag-tag crew of former Banjo-Kazooie developers calling themselves MingyJongo announced that they were working on a spiritual successor to the bear & bird-based N64 platformer series. Unfortunately, that project is no longer in development.
A ragtag crew of ex-Rare staff have joined forces on Twitter to rally up support for a "spiritual successor" to Banjo-Tooie.
Ye olde British developer Rare has had a makeover ahead of its 25th anniversary this summer.
Rare has told Eurogamer that Banjo-Tooie will cost 1200 Microsoft Points (GBP 10.20 / EUR 14.40) when it's released for Xbox Live Arcade on 29th April.
The date was confirmed yesterday but the price remained unknown. We expected the inflated price point, however, as previous retro-revamp Banjo-Kazooie cost the same.
But that trip down memory lane ended in tears, as camera and control issues sullied our rose-tinted view of a game simply not worth that much of today's money. That's not to say Banjo-Tooie will repeat the same errors, of course.
Rare has just given Banjo-Tooie a 29th April Xbox Live Arcade release date.
Rare has announced that Banjo-Tooie will be released on Xbox Live Arcade in April following the release of the original Banjo-Kazooie through the download service late last year.
Microsoft plans to release Rare's Nintendo 64 platformer Banjo-Kazooie for Xbox Live Arcade on 26th November. The price: 1200 MS Points (GBP 10.20 / EUR 14.40).
