Rareware definately had a pretty good presence this year in the form of "Kameo: Elements of Power", and "Perfect Dark Zero". Despite these two titles, Rareware Ltd. is already looking to the future
. While talking to a few Rare employees, and Rareware game testers who work out of Microsoft, I got into the subject of the next wave of Rareware titles.
You can definately expect a Kameo sequel, if "Kameo: Elements of Power" warrants it according to Lead Designer George Andreas. According to a few others though, George and company are also gearing up to start work on a new "Banjo-Kazooie" title to follow up the first two titles that were on Nintendo 64 over four years ago. According to some employees, the title is in the planning stages, although not much work has actually been done so far.
Another interesting bit of information that will have millions of gamers cheering for sure, is the news of a "Killer Instinct 3", the follow-up to Rareware's fighing games "Killer Instinct","Killer Instinct 2", and "Killer Instinct Gold". According to the employees, a hint was supposed to first be shown in a Killer Instinct arcade machine hidden in "Grabbed by the Ghoulies" that wouldn't really do anything, but would be made to frustrate fans into thinking the machine actually could be unlocked. According to one of the employees demoing "Kameo: Elements of Power", somewhere within the title more clues and apparently, unlockable items/characters that take nod to Killer Instinct will also be there.
We will have more on Banjo and Killer Instinct as info comes available.
