Monster mash

Playtonic Games - a UK studio made up of former Rare staffers - has released the first footage from its Banjo Kazooie "spiritual successor", Project Ukulele.

The short clip - posted via Vine on Twitter - shows a minion character from the game hopping from foot to foot.

It's a good indication of the visual style the team are aiming for in this new title, which is hopefully going to make its way to the Wii U.

The first screens from the game were shown at this year's EGX Rezzed event in London.
