Even according to Mumbo in his briefing of the pictures, Rare definitely had some progress on Banjo-Tooie, but it was much later when they saw that they were practically forced to cancel. So it could be that they kinda "needed more time".

What would really help is if I can trace a GS code to let Banjo move through boundaries like walls and doors, and then I can go through the door instead to see if anything happens.
I can't really find the text in the game, though, since all that stuff seems to be compressed or encrypted.

I want to know this for sure, though; I want to prove, one way or the other, if the current fate is correct.

The only other possibilities I have in mind are the version or maybe my save file.
If the interview was fake, they did a good job, except a few notions were suspicious I think. The only real reaction I had at first, was the two outer eggs being fake and used to prevent cheating--while there were codes you could enter in the Sandcastle floor to unlock them. I'm sure they expected people to hack the game and find the codes, though, so that would be the only explanation behind that contradiction.
On the eggs, that's why it made sense to me...the codes seem unlikely for someone to guess (don't have the list, but they are REALLY long), so chances are they'd be hacking to get them. That and they really weren't shown at the end of the game like the others.

I'll hunt for a walk through walls code, though even then it might not help if an event flag (or some such thing) needs to get triggered for this to happen, assuming it is in the game still.
Just can't wait to bomb some Dodongos.
