Having The Two Together

Postby DarkTone » Mon Mar 30, 2015 8:21 pm

Having Kazooie in Banjo's backpack is genius.

It lets you switch between the two with ease, and explains how both are constantly together. I was just thinking how would the 2 new protagonists stay together. Of course, it's all speculation of course.

I mean worst case scenario, #2 can just sit on #1's back or shoulders as it runs around. The backpack was a super cute mechanic though, there's no denying that.

I dont think they'll use a backpack again that'll be TOO B-K. It'll be interesting to see if they come up with something different like being stuck together like conjoined twins. Most likely #2 will just be chilling on #1s back.

Probably just sitting on their shoulder/back, or simply running alongside them. Or maybe this time they'll carry around a purse. Who knows...

They are conjoined twins.


But seriously, look at a chameleon's tail. It can grab things. He holds onto the other character and performs different kinds of moves.

Oh, that'd be pretty cool if the tail coiled upwards into a seat and the other rode on the tail

I don't think the lizard-thing will have a tail. I'm not even sure if it is a chameleon; it looks more like a frog to me now.

It doesn't look too different to me. Bear in mind that Kazooie wasn't a real bird, so the exact colouration and design doesn't matter. Just looking at the character, he looks a bit too bulky to have a long tail (if that makes sense); also, I think I see a small greyish tail above his head, which appears to come from the second character.

I'm predicting the lizard-thing to be a tailless chameleon or frog. Gavin said the characters moves are closely tied in with their animal designs and both chameleons and frogs have interesting behaviours and abilities.

P.S. Not to mention that chameleons eyes are very unique. The character's eyes do not look like a chameleon at all, just scroll up to the chameleon picture to compare for yourself.

I mentioned the chameleon eyes because you mentioned the frog eyes. Everything we say is just speculation, so there's no point arguing about it. We're never going to guess what the character is from that picture -- I just find it odd that everyone is talking like it's a confirmed fact that the character is a chameleon.

Whatever the two characters turn out to be, I like the idea of the second, bird-like character resting on the lizard-like characters shoulder, tail or flying at its side. I don't think they should include an accessory that the bird is tied to in some way, as it'd be too similar to Banjo. Also, a lack of physical ties like the backpack gives a sense that the bird character is not entirely dependant on the Lizard, something they fixed in Tooie with Split Up.

Edit: I should add that Kazooie at least seemed independent due to her snarky and cynical nature. If this bird is chirpy and optimistic then a physical attachment might get misconstrued.

The second main character will probably be sitting on the lizard shoulder/back.

I dont think it will be a Chameleon. Especially since Chameleon Twist is a thing

I think the green guy in front is going to be some made up species of frilled lizard that gains the ability to use a camouflage move. The other and harder to see character will probably be some sort of bird or bat. Personally I'd prefer to see a bat, but some sort of bird would be nice too.
As for the way the two stick together a yellow backpack maybe? :lol: And our scaly friend can wear blue shorts too!
Either that or the other character can hang on for dear life to the lizard's frills like some sort of horse or something!

There are some games where getting hit while holding something makes you drop it. If Kazooie just say on Banjo's shoulder and took a hit, she would fly off. Having her in a bag meant she was there permantly, and I thought that was clever.

Wonder what could be done in this game...
