For those of you who have been waiting for a new Banjo-Kazooie to make it out on the scene, 2019 may just be your year at E3. Exquisite Gaming is a company based in the United Kingdom that creates figures and figurines based on popular IPS depending on who they end up doing business with. (Which, BTW, if you're a Deadpool fan, this is basically your one-stop shop for whatever you need bust wise.) On Twitter this week, the company made a post showing off that they had made a figure design for Banjo-Kazooie after the #BringBackBanjo account begged for a new game announcement at E3 this year. It's a view from the back showing off the backpack Kazooie sits in, but it's pretty clear who the characters are featured.
By their own words, they're preparing to make an announcement soon, which if you believe the rumor mill means that Rare and Microsoft may be planning to announce a new Banjo-Kazooie game as part of their presentation this week. It's a longshot, but as far as hoping for anything involving the character, it's the best one we've got. Well, that and the possibility of seeing the characters appear in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but that would just be sprinkles and a cherry on top of getting a game announcement if both managed to come true this month. In any case, we'll know in the next seven days if any of it comes true.
