The lights are on
Grant Kirkhope, composer for Banjo-Kazooie and dozens of other Rare games, recently appeared on the web show Game Grumps, where he professed his hope for a new Banjo Kazooie game.
You can check out the episode here, which contains many interesting tidbits about the complicated sound design of Banjo-Kazooie, as well as Kirkhope's thoughts for a new entry.
“I keep wishing that all the ex-Rare staffers would just get together and form a company, and go to Nintendo and say ‘give us the money. We’ll make you Banjo 3 for the Wii U’ or whatever. Just make Banjo 3 like it should have been made back then and it would be great, and it would be great on Wii U, and all the ex-Rare guys would be together again all happy and kissing each other. I just keep thinking we should just give it a try.”
