It's been well over a year since Rare confirmed that the team responsible for the original Banjo-Kazooie is working on the latest installment for the Xbox 360. Rare has since come out and answered some questions concerning the new game and, just today, confirmed that the title is on track for a Christmas 2008 release. In his post on NeoGAF, Rare insider George Kelion made mention that series creator, Gregg Mayles, is the lead designer. In addition to that, the game is not being developed with four year olds in mind and we are told that we will be pleasantly surprised by what they come up with.
Now, one question remains. Will the new game be at least as naughty as the others? We can only hope. I loved the originals and cannot wait to get my hands on the new title this Christmas.
