A spiritual successor to Banjo-Tooie by ex-Rare, you say?

"Let's make the spiritual successor to Banjo-Tooie! Core members of the original team are ready to go. All we need is your support," reads Twitter account @MingyJongo. Why, that sounds too good to be true!

And maybe it is -- but I want to believe. "Firstly, [the Twitter] is to test the waters really, about whether anyone would even think making a game that shares that same kind of humour, silly characters, fun game play, great tunes and all that stuff that we enjoy making. It wouldn't be to try and recreate Banjo. It would be something new."

Tweets throughout this month set the stage for the would-be game, which is seemingly starting to come together. While funding is the big unknown right now (Kickstarter?), artist Steven Hurst and composer Grant Kirkhope are both on board. An earlier Tweet mentions that "Unity will probably be perfect for our spiritual successor. I'm thinking keeping level of detail and googly eyes close to the original."

As a huge fan of Rare's N64-era work, there are few types of games I miss more than 3D platformers in that same vein. When this console generation started, I imagined the possibilities of what those titles could become, but such daydreams never panned out. Assemble a team and get the pitch on Kickstarter, and you'll have my money. Day one.
