The long-rumoured third episode in Rare's Banjo-Kazooie series has indeed made the jump to Xbox 360, with Microsoft announcing the as-yet-untitled game at its X06 conference.
With Kameo (like Banjo, another N64 holdover) and Viva Pinata showing that Rare can work 360's visuals like no other, it's a welcome addition to the otherwise guns-and-ammo 360 line-up. The original games' cast and typically Rare sense of humor are said to have been transplanted intact - so the new Banjo could well be the first great Xbox platformer. Er, no offense, Lara Croft, yours was good too.
