it's nice that rare ltd. releasing video about their past games, but i want to see the gameplay of sea of thieves, not the announcement one. for the record it'll be nice if rare ltd. mmofps perfect dark game where you can takes sides (carrington or datadyne) doing mission and can attack each other.

I still play banjo Kazooie multiplayer on my n64. A new release of this would be nice. And conkers bad fur day. Rare needs to join back with nintendo or even sony. They havn't released anything great since going to MS.

@joshrmeyer: there's Yooka Laylee coming out in 2016 :) I'm looking forward to that far more than if Rare as it currently exists were to announce a sequel to BK.

@king_quaps: I read something that if Nintendo brought the banjo license from ms/rare, they wanted to do the "real" banjo 3 and forget about nuts and bolts, but that was a few years back.

That's really interesting. Banjo first appeared in Diddy Kong Racing on the Nintendo 64 in November of 1997. Banjo Kazooie 1 didn't release until the summer of 1998. I would have liked to hear their thoughts about first testing out Banjo's character in the kart racing game before he had his own game.
