Microsoft has announced that the famous bear and bird duo, Banjo and Kazooie, are going to return in a new adventure for the Xbox 360. The revelation came at the company's big X06 media event in the form of a brief teaser clip depecting the two heroes. The announcement has surprised some fans who have cited that they weren't expecting a new Banjo-Kazooie title until after Nintendo had released Super Mario Galaxy, as developer Rare would need to "steal" new gameplay ideas from Nintendo in order to create a successful platformer adventure. That's a load of nonsense not the kind of talk that the gaming community should spread. Rare is certainly able to come up with their own original ideas even if their best days may be behind them.
Early reports indicate that the new Banjo adventure involves the heroes vacationing on Whale Island where they must work together to clean the island of filth. Kazooie, hiding in her backpack on Banjo's back as always, can take in a mouthful of water and spray it out like a water gun while Banjo walks and jumps to aim. Shaman Mumbo Jumbo returns with new transformations for Kazooie that allow her to shoot water like a rocket engine and become a powerful water jet to zoom Banjo across large open waters at turbo speeds. No game in history has included these amazing gameplay gimmicks, so we're surely in for a treat when the finished product hits stores.
I really hope that you realize I'm kidding about the water gun gimmick.
