Ah, man I love those two characters from my hay day, Ban and Jo. Best characters ever!

The sequel was great, too. Ka and Zooie were best buds 'til the end!

Seriously, though, Uku and Lele? Shush. Just shush.

Also, I don't care about their genders. Just so long as they don't look like that illustration... I'm sorry, but I'm just not into it. Just...not appealing to me.

I don't see Kazooie as having much personality. Banjo has a lot more personality because of his obvious gender.

Kazooie had a strong, sassy personality.
Make the forum great again.

What I want is they make pretty clear the new Bottles is in love with the main and male protagonist :lol:

Kazooie's personality needed to be expressed through dialogue. When you see Banjo, you get a sense of his personality. His pronounced features suggest goofiness and his clothing suggests that he is an explorer. Kazooie is quite generic by comparison.

I'm fine in whatever Playtonic decides in which of our main protagonists will be male, or female.

I would love to see the Genders swapped from the previous games, Just as long as the two new characters feel new and different from BK. I love Banjo and Kazooie, but I want to love the two new protagonists as their new own characters, not becasue they resemble Banjo and Kazooie.

I also enjoy the names Uku and Lele, That's clever.

Personally, I don't like those names at all... I wouldn't even know how to pronounce "Uku" in the context of a name. Would I say it as if I was saying "Ukulele"? So, "Yookoo" or maybe "Yookah"? Or would I pronounce it "ookoo"? That's just confusing.

I'd rather the names just be self-explanatory to say. That's best for marketing the game as well.

Okay... and that proves what, exactly? A large number of people thinking something doesn't make it a good idea. Sorry.

Also, it's worth noting that "Banjo" and "Kazoo" are two separate instruments.

I have just as much of a right to complain about such a name as you guys have a right to praise it. End of story.

(Note: A "name flip" isn't what this is. It's just taking the concept of Banjo-Kazooie's name and cutting it in half. That's all.)

What if both the characters were female, and they honestly didn't want to work together, but have to to save (Insert thing they are saving). That would be cause for some cool little feuds and funny dialogue. It could also work for two guys, but I like the idea of two strong female leads better.

Maybe like Tina and Louise from Bob's Burger's!

I never said "shut up," I said "shush." Talk about putting words in people's mouths. Also, it was a joke. I don't tell people to shush and actually mean it because I'm not a 4th grade teacher.

You can explain why you like it, but that's not going to change my opinion of it... We just disagree, but I don't like feeling like I don't have a right to express my opinion. So just leave it at that.
