Former Banjo-Kazooie Dev Doesn't Think Another Game Is Coming

A former Banjo-Kazooie developer has said another game in the series is unlikely because there probably aren't enough people who want to play it.

Speaking to VGC, Banjo-Kazooie composer Grant Kirkhope gave the impression he thinks the game is part of a bygone era, both in terms of the development team and player-base.

"I feel like you’d have to get a team with the humour that we had back then and that’s hard to replicate," he said. "I think Rare would be open to somebody if they found the right team, but I don’t feel like that team exists. Also, I’m not convinced the audience is there either."

Many players had called for a new game, or at least a remake of the originals, during somewhat of a mascot platformer renaissance that occured in the late 2010s when the likes of both Spyro and Crash Bandicoot received remasters.

Several developers behind the original Banjo-Kazooie even got together to make a spiritual successor in Yooka-Laylee, but the excitement around this style of game has seemingly since died down.

In IGN's 9/10 review of the original Banjo-Kazooie from 1998, we said: "This is the best 3D platformer [we] have ever played, and a more than worthy successor to Super Mario 64."
