Banjo-Kazooie composer says proposed spiritual successor called off

Proposed Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor Mingy Jongo has been canceled, franchise composer Grant Kirkhope has revealed.

Responding to questions on Reddit, Kirkhope confirmed a new project based on Rare's Nintendo 64 platformer has been called off by the group of ex-Rare staff who had originally planned its development.

"The other guys actually had a secret meeting in a pub near Rare and we even got as far as having a character drawn up and a demo level type thing but it all fell to bits .... everyone's got other jobs, etc.," Kirkhope said.

Mingy Jongo was first mentioned back in 2012 by the newly-formed team, but – up until earlier this week – little to no info had surfaced regarding the project.
