Yooka-Laylee

Post by Zero Revolution on Tue Feb 10, 2015 3:06 pm

Former Rare devs Playtonic Games are currently working on a Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor, which they mentioned could be for Wii U. They haven't mentioned other consoles, but I'm putting it in General Gaming for now.

- being worked on by Playtonic Games, a new studio formed by six veterans of Rare
- called “Project Ukulele”
- a “worthy spiritual successor” to Banjo-Kazooie
- funding has been secured, but Playtonic would still like to work with a publisher

“Over the coming months we’ll reveal more about our project and future growth plans, and we very much intend to get you involved and listen to your views on our game’s direction. You’ll ultimately shape the destination of our project and we plan to continue exchanging sweet glances across cyberspace at you until we get there.

There's a history of working with Nintendo so we'd naturally love to see our game on a Nintendo platform. If people tell us to make Wii U our target console platform then we've got the flexibility to do that." - Playtonic

Yes! If it comes to Wii U, I'm definitely buying it. I loved the original Banjo-Kazooie. (not the sequel honestly though...hopefully it won't be quite as much like that one) I'll wait for footage to really say my thoughts though, who knows how good it will end up being.

Seems interesting.
Rare really feel apart after being bought.
All their good workers left, now hopefully those workers can make a good game.

Will see how this goes since it's only a few members that worked on the game all those years ago.

They just recruited 3 former Rare music people.
This could actually turn out as a good game.

^ Woah, awesome! I just hope David Wise doesn't try to make the soundtrack like Tropical Freeze...some songs were amazing, but it felt like he was trying out so many different styles that it just didn't feel fitting to me.

^ Oh yeah, I saw that, I thought I posted it already. I don't think those 2 characters fully colored are the main characters...they don't really look like they would be to me.

It seems interesting so far. I enjoyed and 100% completed the original Banjo Kazooie but never played the sequel. People originally from Rare are making this, it's totally worth looking into. I hope it comes to Wii U.

So Playtonic is going to present info. I guess it's going to be introducing the main characters.

^ I wouldn't recommend playing Banjo-Tooie, but that's just me...I didn't really enjoy it compared to the original game. That also makes me hope that this new title is more similar to the original Banjo-Kazooie though.

Can't wait to hear more info!

Considering the majority prefer the sequel I'd say try it if you have an easy way to do it.

I see. I barely know much about the sequel. I think it's worth a try someday, I'm not sure how much I'd like it. I'd like this new title to have a place similar Gruntilda's Lair because I really enjoyed that place.

Yeah the majority do like the sequel more. I will try to get the cartridge for the Nintendo 64 so I can see if I like it better or not someday.

I kind of want hard challenges like the engine room from the original Banjo-Kazooie because some challenge is fun. Though that part in the game was a bit too hard. I don't know where this game would go with difficulty.

More Concept Art:


Their presentation at EGX Rezzed is tomorrow.

Maybe we should change the name of the topic to Project Ukulele.

^ Yeah true, since we've only been talking about the game in this thread.
