They need an established line up before they do a Kart Racer. I'd say do 2ka-Laylee or a 2D platformer starring someone else.

Don't forget this team had nothing to do with cbfd or perfect dark so a spiritual successor to these isn't likely.

I pledged this first project because a revival of "collectathon" 3D platformers was something I really hankered after for years, and I feared there would be no one in the industry to finance it. We'll see if they were wrong or right.

But for fresh projects, hey, make your business plan targeted at more conventional stakeholders.

What if they did a game that was totally unrelated to any genres they've worked on previously? That'd be wild, and I'm not sure it's something any Playtonic fan is expecting.

I personally voted for a 2D platformer or Cart Racer next, but I would totally understand if the next thing they said was "our next game is a totally unique venture using <character list> from Yooka-Laylee. We want to do this so we're not spiritually succeeding every RARE game for the rest of our careers."

YL makes a lot of sense, but it would also make sense if they don't want to live in a shadow and be RARE2.0 forever. Even being the Better Brother to RARE is different from standing on your own.

I mean, it doesn't have to be a 1:1 spiritual successor to Diddy Kong Racing. Just like Yooka-Laylee, I expect a proper evolution of their vision of a fun racer. The only thing I would like to insist on is the three types of vehicles (karts, hovercrafts, planes) in some way and an adventure mode with an overworld. Everything else, like the controls (oh they better make the controls better :mrgreen: ) and the gameplay can vary and evolve to whatever they like to. Oh, but the upgradable-item system was pretty genius as well.

Rareware/Playtonic were/are probably the only ones that can deliver an experience on the same or higher (high) level of a Mario Kart. And the DKR formula deserves a proper evolution. Who will do that, if not Playtonic? Who knows, maybe they even gain Nintendo's trust to directly do a DKR sequel with Nintendo / Playtonic characters instead of Banjo and Conker (whenever that will be, that is). I would love that.

I suspect the company will want to diversify and do something totally unrelated to platforming for a second game.

Maybe a Killer Instinct-type fighter?

Well, this will be likely just a joke, but Playtonic and Retro games just answered a fans Question about an DK64 Successor :D



I wouldn´t mind if Playtonic is going to make someday a new Donkey Kong game. ^^

Thought I'd revive this topic to say one game I'd love to see come to fuition: a variation/spiritual successor to Dinosaur Planet, one of Rare's greatest lost gems.
I'm playing through Star Fox Adventures at the moment, and as much as I like it, I get sadder the more I play it knowing what it was going to be before Miyamoto came in and botched it just because of a few similarities between the protagonist and Fox.
Watching the pre-release footage, reading the condensed story on MundoRare and listening to all the voice acting from Dinosaur Planet hinted at just how interesting it would have been. It's the strongest written story I've heard from Rare and it kills me to know I'll never experience the original game as intended.

So, I'd like to see a similar kind of idea from Playtonic. I don't know what things to change to avoid infringement or whatever but, yeah...

On that note, Kyte would have been my favourite character. If you know the original story, Kyte's tale would have been very bittersweet.

I'd say the next logical step, after a Banjo-Kazooie inspired game would be a Donkey Kong Country inspired game, but then again, it's not like people are begging for that kind of game the way they were a 3D platformer collect-a-thon (thank you Retro Studios)... Perhaps a raunchy 3D platformer like Conkey's Bad Fur Day? Or a racing game like Diddy Kong Racing? How about a first-person shooter stealth game like Perfect Dark? Maybe a fighting game like Killer Instinct? Maybe something totally off-the-walls crazy like Blast Corps?

Personally, I'd like to see a Diddy Kong Racing or Blast Corps kind of game the most!
