Concept art from the new game

Earlier this month, we reported on the news that fledgling studio Playtonic Games - made up of former Rare employees - is currently hard at work on a spiritual successor to the Banjo Kazooie series.

It has now been confirmed that the as-yet-unnamed release will be getting its public unveiling at this year's EGX Rezzed, which takes place between March 12th to the 14th in London.

Playtonic's presentation will take place on the Saturday at 4PM, and is entitled "A Rare Reunion: Rebirth of the 3D Platformer".

Here's what Playtonic's Gavin Price had to say:

It was the fans of our past work who inspired the creation of Playtonic, so we're delighted to be able to showcase our vision to them in person at EGX Rezzed - as well as a few cheeky details of our game!

Playtonic has confirmed that its game will be coming to the PC and consoles, and has also stated that it would be more than happy to bring it to the Wii U - a wise move when you consider how many Rare fans exist on that particular console.

If you're not lucky enough to be attending Rezzed, don't fret - you can follow the presentation live on the Rezzed Twitch Channel and watch highlights on the Rezzed YouTube channel.
