Rare has declined to rule out the possibility of N64 classics Banjo-Kazooie and the sequel releasing on Wii's Virtual Console, despite their imminent arrival on XBLA.
When asked, once again, of the likelihood that Banjo's original outings would appear on Nintendo's download service, a Rare rep said: "No immediate plans to put Kazooie or Tooie on Virtual Console, as you might expect now that they're both due out on Xbox Live Arcade."
Not the reply we want, but it's not a straight "no chance" either which, to us, leaves room for hope. Hope that Rare isn't just leading us on - flirtatiously rubbing our inner thighs before running off and leaving us high and dry.
The original Banjo-Kazooie will arrive on XBLA on November 26, with Banjo-Tooie to follow early next year.
