Project Ukulele – Banjo Kazooie 3?

Yo, I heard you like N64-era-style platformers. Ex-Rare dudes started a company called Playtonic and are working on a new game, codenamed Project Ukulele, and I gotta say, it looks pretty neat. Here are the early screens:

Check out the official post from their website too.

I loved the Banjo Kazooie games when I was younger. The huge worlds capitalized on the increase in processing power from the previous generation, so it was something the likes of which I had never seen. I’m not sure if the same style of game is capable of turning heads in 2015, so I’m very curious to learn more about the project. I really hope they find some way to innovate just enough to capitalize on nostalgia without relying on it, or creating a dated game.
