Also. If the true IP is Battletoads I will be pissed.
Lets be honest. Battletoads is just an insanely difficult version and rip off of TMNT.
NOT INTERESTED.

This is Rare's 30th anniversary year, let's not forget. :cry:
Wonder how Bungie managed to break free from Microsoft - if they can do it, maybe Rare has a shot? Not holding my breath though.

Signs actually point to more than one title.

Microsoft is celebrating a YEAR of Rare. Battletoads has some small support because they appeared as additional Shovel Knight content, and some small teases.
Conker confirmed to at least be coming into Project Spark as an episodic release, and as usable content for creators.
Banjo has been teased like four times in 2015 alone, Rare is confirmed to be working on a project that Microsoft says "fans of Rare will be excited to see", and Gavin Price gave a huge, huge nod to it possibly being Banjo Kazooie. There was also an article early this year that Microsoft is planning to use Rare IPs and Banjo was an example listed.

I wouldn't be surprised to see all three announced this year, but Banjo is actually looking more plausible than Battletoads right now. Which is good. Battletoads is old and is only popular for being really difficult in unfair ways. Let it rest in my opinion.
Make the forum great again.

I wish they announced a new Perfect Dark game or at least a new book/comic book issues, but apparently PD has been ruled out until 2020 by Ken Lobb.

They say a year of Rare so they are celebrating Rare IPs.
Conker celebrated in Project Spark [x]
Battletoads celebrated in Shovel Knight [x]
Perfect Dark has been confirmed to be NOT in development [x]
Blast Corps & Jet Force Gemini, wont get games or cameos they arent popular enough [x]
This doesnt leave many more choices and if it isn't a new IP then we're left with Banjo [?]

I'm feeling more confident about this years E3 than in YEARS.

I can't get excited for any MS-related Rare games. Nuts & Bolts was bad enough, but the fact that they snidely insulted the original games in the Xbox release of BK just ruined it for me.

Unless the fans can raise up enough cash and buy back the franchise for Playtonic, I'm basically gonna ignore all new BK games.

Just had a really crazy thought:
What is the big surprise which will "make Rare fans happy" in their 30th anniversary year is not Banjo-Kazzoie but is in fact...

Rare's answer to Super Smash Bros.

Think about it: it'd be a killer app for Xbone (that system desperately NEEDS one), it'd get the Rare fanboys back onside and would certainly make Rare fans more than a little excited.
