Five former members of Banjo Kazooie, Goldeneye and Kinect Sports developer Rare have formed a new studio named Flippin Pixels.

GamesIndustry reports studio director Steve Brand, software director James Ackroyd, art director Steven Hurst, design director Shaun Read and technical director Gary Richards all quietly left the Microsoft-owned Rare last year.

The studio will now focus on mobile development, with one project already on the go and others in the very early concept phases.
