Here’s some more potentially great news for us Rare fans! 4JStudios has announced that they will be present at E3 next week and simultaneously teased an announcement of a new game. This is quite significant as three of their previous titles were HD remakes of past Rare games. Those games included Banjo-Kazooie, Banjo-Tooie, and Perfect Dark respectively. Even their latest title, an exclusive Xbox 360 port of Minecraft, has had plenty of Rare love having had ninteeen skins based on Rare characters thus far.
So there you have it. The probability of this new 4JStudios game being a remake of another Rare title is very high. Could this be the Killer Instinct revival we’re all expecting? Remember, the initial announcement by Microsoft for the renewal of the Killer Instinct trademark was from their Xbox LIVE Arcade branch. And where has all of 4JStudios’ games been developed for? The Xbox LIVE Arcade. So Killer Instinct is definitely a possibility. Maybe even Jet Force Gemini!
Remember, Microsoft’s E3 Media Briefing is this Monday at 9:30AM PST, so we’ll most likely be seeing their next title there. Fingers crossed that it does actually turn out to be a Rare remake!
