Thanks to a tweet from Nintendo of Japan, we have learned that Banjo Kazooie is coming to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pass N64 app in January 2022. This is a very welcomed addition for a couple reasons, because not only is Banjo Kazooie a classic in the 3D platforming realm but Microsoft technically owns Rare and the intellectual property.
Check out the original trailer from 1997:
About Banjo Kazooie
Action and Puzzles and Bears, Oh My!
Trouble brews when Gruntilda the witch captures the unbearably beautiful cub, Tooty. But before the grisly hag can steal the bear’s good looks, big brother Banjo and his fine-feathered friend, Kazooie, join forces to stop her. Combining their 24 moves and special powers, Banjo and Kazooie will fend off armies of beasts. Bear and bird must hunt down the 100 puzzle pieces and 900 musical notes that will ultimately lead them to Gruntilda. However, miles of swamp, desert and snow and one bear of an adventure stand in their way.
- Soar over islands to scout out buried treasure.
- Brave past whirling blades in the belly of a mechanical shark.
- With some voodoo magic, transform into different creatures to gain special powers.
- Solve the puzzles of the ancients to unearth the cursed labyrinths.
