Never Before Seen Banjo-Kazooie Renders?
 
So I was just surfing the internet and I happen to run across these babies:

A render of Gruntilda performing a spell.
http://www.raregamer.co.uk/wp-conten...runtyspell.png

Banjo, Kazooie, Mumbo, Grunty and a Jinjo posing with the Rareware Logo.

Banjo, Kazooie, Mumbo and some Jinjos looking a Jiggy Wiggy.

Banjo and Kazooie by the N64 Logo surrounded by flowers.
http://www.raregamer.co.uk/wp-conten...ders/bkn64.jpg

I think that last one looks like Banjo is about to embrace you with a hug, like "Come to me my Child". Banjo is Jesus Christ Confirmed.

While I owned the original game for a while; I never owned the box or the instructional booklet, so I don't know if these are new or not. I appologize in advance if you've seen these.

I got these renders from www.raregamer.co.uk if anyone's interested. I saw some Grabbed by the Ghoulies ones that I had never seen as well.

Edit: Banjo is Jesus Christ Confirmed is now my signature.

Someone threw out the B-K box and I had to throw the manual away after spilling milk on it years ago... I remember what I was doing for some reason. I found the Turbo Trainers outside Freezeezy Peak and was looking them up.

DementedSun 5th March 2013 04:22 AM

I feel as though some of these came from Japanese adverts or the like, as I know I've seen them somewhere...

Also the purple Jinjo in the one made me think of that beta Jinjo animation that could be played in the intro screen? It was awhile ago, but I definitely remember using a code to see it.

Heres a coo' pic of Edison, yo!

The first 3 are used in either the Prima or Nintendo Power Strategy guides. The last one I haven't seen before.

Banjo-Kaz64 6th March 2013 03:00 PM

I haven't seen any of those, besides the last one! I used the last picture of Banjo and the logo for my signature at RWC ;)

I searched "Diddy Kong Racing" in google images and that was one of the results!

ScRaT64™ 6th March 2013 03:14 PM

Amazing.. Never seen these renders before. Well cept' the last one.

ThumbsUpMaster 8th March 2013 06:56 PM

Cool to know people are finding that first Grunty render! I got it from Nintendo Power's Player's Guide and gave it to Rare Gamer. There are good in-game renders (not artwork) inside the guide, like high quality pictures of Bottles, Tooty, and all the baddies.

It's strange how Bottles never had official artwork until N&B.

Lerako 9th March 2013 11:56 PM

Thanks for touring through our Banjo-Kazooie section at Raregamer.co.uk, we appreciate the interest.
I can confirm that the unseen images mostly come from the Official Nintendo Strategy guide, as I've scanned them in and uploaded them to the server. The "Jesus" Banjo actually originated from the Banjo-Kazooie section on Rare's main site circa 1998, with the Rare logo shot found at the reverse of the magazine.
There's a ton of interesting unseen magazine scans I've been working on for other Rare games including Conker's Bad Fur Day, Diddy Kong Racing and Killer Instinct - all of which can be found in their appropriate section on our website.
Thanks again for checking it out!

EDIT: Interestingly enough, the image of Edison that Frankadoodles has posted was scanned and edited from its magazine by myself as well - credit where it's due never seems to meet me, haha!

Bump. I went to DKVine for the first time in many years and found out they updated their Video Game Artwork section and have a bunch of new Renders I haven't seen before!

DKVine Video Game Artwork

They have a Grabbed by the Ghoulies one I haven't seen, loads of Grunty's Revenge and Viva Pinata Renders.

Final Smash 31st August 2013 05:59 PM

Back in the day, Best Buy was doing some special bundle that came with an N64 & a copy of BK. It also came along with the soundtrack and a T-Shirt that had the Jesus Banjo picture on it.

I'd show you pictures, but my 2 yr old self destroyed the shirt somehow. I do have the soundtrack case somewhere though..

TheGreatNi 31st August 2013 07:47 PM

Somebody back me up on this one, but that isn't a RENDER. It's artwork...right? So if you're like me and came here for new beta stuff, lucked out my friend...

TRBB 31st August 2013 10:33 PM

Artwork/Render, 2D/3D whatever, they're both there. I just thought I should share what I found.

I believe it's all artwork. A render is in game...doesn't look to 64ish to me...

Anyway, these are kinda old promotional stuffs.

1UP 2nd September 2013 08:38 PM

These are renders. You are thinking of another type of 'render.'

Renders can be hand-drawn, computer generated, etc. There's entire sites worth of people who create renders of official art and stuff.

This render=rendition. Gotcha.

They're digital renders that were used for promotional art. The N64 actually would've been able to display images pretty close to what we're discussing, but they would've had to have been prerendered images, rather than whatever the opposite of prerendered is. Prerendered images are essentially pictures/animations/videos saved within the ROM that the system accesses rather than creates. Rareware pioneered the use of prerendered graphics with the Donkey Kong Country Trilogy in order to push the graphical limits of the SNES. Though games still used prerendered graphics in the age of the N64 (Mario Kart and Killer Instinct), they were largely reserved for small details, menus and cutscenes because newly achievable polygons were infinitely more dynamic.

Also, none of these images are new to me; I had both the Prima and Nintendo Power Player's Guides, which used these images heavily.

I hate to bump a five year old thread, but I just found these renders and I couldn't think of where else to post them.

Banjo Walking

E3 1998

While we're on the topic, I can't find a specific render of Banjo, Kazooie, and Mumbo-Jumbo sitting by a camp fire while Mumbo is casting a spell. I think it was on a lunch box, but I can't find it anymore.

Here is a piece of the render. Mumbo is on the right while Banjo is flinching on the left.

Edit: Well, I just found the other half. I know both halves pieced together exists out there somewhere.

Banjo Flinching

N64DD 20th August 2018 04:10 AM

Banjo is Jesus Christ confirmed

Alakazam 20th August 2018 11:27 AM

whoa i love the e3 '98 one

TRBB 27th September 2018 02:56 AM

Me again. Someone on 4Chan /v/ just posted this render in this thread.
Once again, it's a new render I've never seen before. Where are people finding these things?

Qwertyo76 27th September 2018 01:46 PM

Could be a Rare staff member posts on 4chan. It's not unheard of.

I feel like I've seen that one before. I can't say for sure where, but I feel like it isn't new to me..

Qwertyo76 1st October 2018 08:02 PM

Still trying to figure out what combination of rhythmic chants and square dancing maneuvers summon Whyme to the forums.

TRBB 6th October 2018 10:26 PM

I found it!

Mumbo Jumbo looks very similar to the picture in Mad Monster Mansion, but I knew they weren't the same.

Alakazam 6th October 2018 11:37 PM

whoa
i remember seeing that exact lunchbox once, another kid at school had it and i wanted to steal it so bad

TRBB 16th October 2018 04:51 PM

@ just recently bumped an old thread called "The Worst Banjo-Kazooie Guide" and I found something interesting.

This scan shows a rendering of Mumbo Jumbo.
Here is a close-up of him.

This render of Mumbo Jumbo is the same one seen on the front of box, but what's different is that his left arm isn't cut off.
Never mind, I think it is cut off. I was probably looking at it wrong.

Anyways, since this thread is all about renders, I wanted to point out these old Jinjo and King Jingaling renders. The European/PAL covers have him and the Jinjos covered up with text, but the USA cover is a lot clearer (and they have more contrast).

Sad Jinjo with Honeycombs
King Jinagling and Sad Jinjo
Two flying Jinjos
Sad King Jingaling

I know this sounds silly, but I never actually looked at the spines for "Banjo-Kazooie", so I decided to take a quick look, and I found a Gruntilda render I've never seen before along with some level backgrounds.

Banjo and Kazooie in Freezeezy Peak
Gruntilda
Mumbo Jumbo and a Jinjo
A Jinjo in Gobi's Valley

I don't think I've seen that Mumbo Jumbo render either. It's hard to tell what pose he's making.
I don't think I've seen those crystals (in the Freezeezy Peak render) before either, because they're not in these other two promo images with snow in them.
Banjo and Kazooie in a generic snow setting
Banjo and Kazooie in Freezezzey Peak
I know the render with the crystals in them are from Freezeezy Peak because the plants match.

Edit: Boy, I'm just on a render kick right now aren't I? I've never seen the "Diddy Kong Racing" spines either.
Wizpig hiding behind a tree
Taj holding Balloons in what I assume is Timber's Island
Snowflake Mountain

I checked "Super Mario Wiki' and found this render with Banjo in it.
Diddy Kong Racing Japan
I headed over to "DK Vine" and found this render I've never seen before. Not even "Super Mario Wiki" has it.
Chased by Smokey
Sorry for this huge post, but this kind of stuff fascinates me. I used to go on "DK Vine" all the time when I was younger and look at all of the old 3D renders. Shame "The Rare Witch Project" deleted its Wiki, I still have some images from when it was still running.

Mr. Airplane 16th October 2018 05:12 PM

To be fair, I didn't bump an old thread. I made that thread a week and a half ago.

TRBB 16th October 2018 05:16 PM

Oops, sorry! For some reason I read the date as 2016 instead of 2018! Silly me!
