So I noticed in the new video from IGN that there is no blob shadow under the character. For those that don't know, a blob shadow is the round shadow directly underneath the character in platforming games. It serves to in 3D platforming games. is the blob shadow from Banjo Kazooie.
If you go to the , at around the 0:46 mark, you an see the character jumping across some platforms. Without a blob shadow, it's actually very difficult to judge if the character is above the platforms or not, or how close the character is to the edge of the platform.
I hope the blob shadow is missing only because this is early footage. Without it, platforming becomes very difficult.
