EXCLUSIVE: Syrupent Sunday- The Many Cameos in Viva Pinata

One of the most interesting aspects of Viva Pinata is the sheer amount of cameos in the game. Rare didn’t just include a vast amount of new accessories and items, they also included many familiar objects that are reminiscent of their past games. Statues, accessories, and even a bit of gossip from Leafos where she makes mention of Grabbed by the Ghoulies. Below is a list of many of the cameo appearances:

  • Banjo-Kazooie Statue
  • Mumbo Jumbo Statue
  • Captain Blackeye Statue
  • Banjo’s Backpack
  • Banjo’s Sharktooth Necklace
  • Gruntilda’s Hat
  • Conker’s Helmet
  • Grabbed by the Ghoulies Arcade
  • Ortho’s Hat
  • Captain Blackeye’s Hat
  • Bottles’ Glasses
  • Jolly Roger’s Lips
  • Jiggy Earrings
  • Captain Blackeye’s Sword
  • Captain Blackeye’s Eyepatch

That’s the only ones that I can think of at the moment, but I’m certain there are plenty of others that I’ve managed to miss. Did you ever take advantage of some of the accessories and create some of you favorite Rare characters, like Banjo for instance?
