I couldn’t watch the Nintendo Direct live because it was on at 2am my time. So I had to stay off the internet during my work breaks today so I didn’t see any E3 spoilers. Watched the Direct after work and as soon as that puzzle piece bounced across the floor, I was internally screaming “THAT’S A JIGGY!!!”. Then when those duck hunt characters were revealed snickering, I was thinking “No, SURELY Nintendo wouldn’t be that mean, playing with our feelings like that?!” AND THEN THEY FELL FROM THE SKY!
I don’t even play Super Smash Bros. and thought even if the rumours were true, that I wouldn’t bother with the game just because of Banjo and Kazooie. But now I’ve actually seen it, I’m sorely tempted! They look so good! The models, the animations, the music!
But at the same time, part way through the trailer (from where they show the wide shot of Spiral Mountain) I got a bit sad, thinking “Look how good a proper Banjo-Threeie game COULD be, and we might not ever get to experience it”.
So it was bitter-sweet, seeing that trailer.
But on the plus side, that should mean a nice Banjo-Kazooie amiibo!
