Included on the Rare Replay disc are featurettes for all sorts of promising games that could have been monster hits for the company.

One of which was Kameo II:

Another was the intriguing Black Widow:

There were plans for zombie horror in Sundown:

As well as flight in Tailwind:

But perhaps the biggest loss would have been Rare's answer to Mario Kart, The Fast and the Furriest.
It sounds like Banjo-Kazooie:N&B done RIGHT:

Yeah, whilst it's good to see these it somewhat makes it more sadder because now I feel like I'll never get those games.

I really want Kameo 2 and Fast & the furriest.

So great to hear that the fantasy elements were expanded upon for Kameo as well.

Fast & the furriest all those rare characters together and racing each other, would be awesome.

Dangit. Can't this still happen? SO annoyed if they didn't because Kinect Sports was thought more important. :(

Also exclusive to Rare Replay, making-of videos for Banjo, KI, Blast Corps, Conker and Battletoads. Here's a playlist of them all:

Interesting to note that all the developers accentuate the support Nintendo brought to these Rare titles as they were being developed, especially KI and Banjo - Microsoft didn't edit that out.

With the theme weeks Rare's had on social media of late, it's quite depressing how much was axed.
Conker Gettin' Medieval was a big shock.
