Banjo Kazooie 3 Likely Coming This Holiday


As a longtime fan of Rare’s and most everything they’ve developed (except Perfect Dark Zero, but that’s neither here nor there), so Banjo Kazooie 3 is near the top of my most anticipated Xbox 360 games. If Shane Kim’s comments to MTV Multiplayer are accurate, we’ll be seeing the game before the end of the year.

When asked about Rare’s status and where they stand in regards to making E-rated and M-rated games, Kim said, “I’m super-excited about what they’re doing with ‘Banjo.’ I think ‘Banjo’ is going to be a big hit for us this holiday.” That’s not quite the same as getting an email with the headline “Banjo This November” or anything, but hopefully Kim isn’t too far off in his estimation.

The interview also hit up several other subjects, such as the cancelation of Marvel Universe Online, whether Viva Pinata DS is still in the works (“There’s still a hint”), a future for Halo outside of Peter Jackson and Halo Wars, Ken Lobb’s enthusiasm for Crackdown, Alan Wake’s 2008 release (“not necessarily”), and a whole lot more.

with any luck this’ll be the title that put’s the final nail in Rare’s coffin.

Thats a bit harsh, but agreed, since departing from nintendo (altho not entirely their fault I have to add) the quality just hasnt been there.

I disagree. PD Zero was a major step back from the first game, but Viva Pinata was quite good.
