EXCLUSIVE: Top 5 Unannounced Rare Games For E3

With E3 only a couple of months away, we wait in anticipation and hope (Quite a bit more than what it used to be) that there will be some Rare titles, and fans are crying out for traditional titles, rather than another Kinect Sports title such as these: (Come on Rare, make it happen!)


It has been nearly FOUR years since Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts ‘n Bolts was released for the Xbox 360, and let’s face it, most fans were disappointed. The game seemed to be a chore rather than the beginning-to-end fun the previous titles contained. The idea which made Banjo-Kazooie what it is, that bear and bird combo where you had the ability to fly remained, only this time in an airplane?! Surely that doesn’t make sense? That’s like going for a shower even though you’re clean!

Hopefully come E3 we will hear that familiar sound that the likes of Grant Kirkhope created which makes our cheeks stretch beyond the perimeter of our faces with delight, and a traditional Banjo-Threeie will be unveiled. In the next installment we would simply be looking to pretend Nuts ‘n Bolts never even happened (I know I will try!), and we can look forward to the bear and bird kicking some Grunty butt! Please Rare, bigger worlds, traditional move sets, more jiggies and more quirky characters and everything we loved about Banjo-Kazooie. Do us a favour and leave the mechanical creations under a rock next to Spiral Mountain!

Perfect Dark 2

Perfect Dark was awesome, Perfect Dark Zero… ok, not as awesome but still a quality game. What Perfect Dark on the Nintendo 64 did extremely well was to be the spiritual sequel to Goldeneye. Goldeneye is still arguably the best first person shooter ever, so wouldn’t it be great to see Joanna Dark in Perfect Dark 2, where it could be superior to Battlefield 3 or Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3?

Goldeneye was such a success because of how fun it was to play. That run and gun element, the explosions, that 007 feel. Still today, no James Bond game has came anywhere close to being as good as this classic. Rare could have so much success with a Perfect Dark 2. Imagine typical Rare graphics all spruced up, imagine a run and gun system that was just plain fun, snipers have nowhere to hide and a back to basics approach using everything that made Goldeneye and Perfect Dark what it is, and add to it! If anyone can overcome Call of Duty or Battlefield 3, surely it’s Rare?

Kameo 2

Kameo was an amazing game, possibly the latest one which was closest to being similar of their amazing past. A sequel could be so much more. Make the levels a bit bigger and more difficult, the same characters and battle concept and maybe more depth and what an amazing game this would be. Simply stick to the initial entry in the series, minus the stress of a Microsoft buy-out and this could be a classic game!

Banjo-Kazooie 3DS

A remake and graphical remaster of the original with no complicated new control mechanism. Are any of you saying no? Didn’t think so! Imagine this nostalgic masterpiece back on your 3DS. Something the younger generation especially could look at and fall in love with just like all of you Banjo fans from when the original was released did. Would you be disappointed to see this come out? Ok maybe not a sequel to Banjo-Tooie, but it’s a start!

Super Smash Bros.-Esque Rare Title

Blown your mind? Imagine Banjo, Conker, Tiptup, Grunty, Mr. Pants and Joanna Dark (Maybe even Sonic after racing side by side?) to name but a few, kicking seven bells of faeces straight out of each other! Throw in a crazy Jinjonator and a Klunnnngggooooo potion for items and what an amazing game the Xbox 360 would have! A real exclusive!


Which game do you hope Rare unveils at this years E3? Is it one of the above? Or perhaps there is one not mentioned? What are your thoughts?
