Kameo 2 [Xbox 360 – Cancelled]

Kameo 2“, successor of Kameo: Elements of Power, is a cancelled Xbox 360 title which was in development at British studio Rare Ltd. Although it was never officially announced, some Kameo 2 animations appeared in a reel of a former Rare employee, as noticed by some Kameo-fans at the neoGaf Forum. It’s interesting to see that the style of the project looked different from the original game, with a more “realistic” version of the character.  We can speculate that they tried to make Kameo more “mature” to appeal more to the typical Xbox userbase. It is unknown to what extent development was finished when the title was cancelled in late 2007 – around two years after the original was released.

In 2008, concepts for a more direct sequel were created. Kameo mainly retained her design from the same game, just with a more realistic style. Images can be found beneath.

Kameo [GameCube – Cancelled]

Kameo: Elements of Power is a video game launched for the Microsoft Xbox 360 video game console and developed by Rare. Kameo was originally slated for the Nintendo GameCube, and was set to be one of Rare’s flagship titles for the system, along with Star Fox Adventures and Donkey Kong Racing. However, when Microsoft announced its purchase of Rare in late 2002, Kameo’s future was put in question. It was decided that work would continue on the Xbox, and a planned release date of 2003 was given. After several revamps, causing repeated delays, Kameo was put on indefinite hold in late 2004. Following this, rumours began that the game was once again undergoing a platform change, this time from the Xbox to the Xbox 360, where it was the first announced game for the system. The original GameCube version had a different character design, but probably the core game was essentially the same. [Info from Wikipedia]
