Diddy Kong booted in favour of Banjo

Ties cut as DKP makes way for Microsoft

Posted by Staff
It has emerged that the looming Diddy Kong Pilot, somewhat strangely scheduled to be developed by Rare and published by Microsoft for Game Boy Advance, has been canned, in favour of Banjo Pilot.

Indeed, an application to the US patent office sees Microsoft register the Banjo Pilot brand, hinting that the deal with Nintendo to use its intellectual properties for GBA development at Rare has collapsed.

Of course all is secret at present, though expect something at X03 in September.
