Some ex-Rare employees formed a company named Playtonic Games and they are currently working on a game currently code named "Project Ukelele" that will be a spiritual successor to Banjo-Kazooie (which I have played but it's been way too long for me to remeber anything out of it). All we have of it right now is a piece of concept art and a teaser image.

The concept art:

The teaser image (wonder what and who is hiding in the bushes): 

Who else besides me is excited for this?

Thanks Aura.

Slightly off-topic; it does make me wonder now, seeing that Duck Hunt is in Smash 4, it's about a close as Banjo and Kazooie being in a Smash Bros. game. Now, it would be wicked if Duck Hunt got another game similar to Banjo-Kazooie. And now this game being worked on. It seems like everything could be working on 3D platformers akin to collectathons again.

They didn't show up for some reason. One of them in Aura's post isn't showing up either.

hmm I'll be secretly watching this for a bit. I kind of lost all my hopes for anything conkers bad fur day or banjo kazooie like after Rare pretty much got bought out.

But once I see some gameplay of this new game I'll be jumping for joy. I just don't want to give my hopes up yet. I don't have hopes to spare.
