MetalVocalist commented on Grant Kirkhope Wishes He Could Make Banjo-Kazo...:

A serious message to the higher-ups: I understand the odds of ex-Rare staff re-uniting to focus effort into a new and much needed Banjo game is highly unlikely and against the majority of our gamer hopes. With no exaggeration, this is one the most disappointing facts that haunts me. I am a HUGE and extreme Rare/Banjo-Kazooie fan (especially Banjo-Tooie. That game was just a flawless expansion to the series in every way), and I play the games often and never lose interest in the fun they provide. I was disappointed with the release of Nuts & Bolts, and I understand that many other fans of the series were as well. Just recently I watched the Guest Grumps episode featuring Grant Kirkhope and admired the commentary. It was very interesting to hear such insight coming from him on the game, even in the funnier portions of the episode. I completely agree with him on the idea of making a Banjo-Kazooie 3. I've seen many posts of people wanting to start a fan-movement in order to spur ex-Rare staff into developing a new title in the series. I share the same desires. I truly hope for some miracle to occur where Rare can come back, at least to accomplish one last Banjo game the us fans are craving so much (with the platforming roots returning, obviously). I've read a couple articles about a "spiritual successor" being talked about... The articles disappointed me. I'm like, "are you kidding? Why not just give us the Banjo game?" Anyway, just had to vent it all out. I hope and pray and wish and dream of the day an announcement comes along stating that the ex-Rare staff have come together to bring us this Banjo title that we're all gluing our hearts to.
