If you remember playing Banjo-Kazooie on the Nintendo 64 console or on a smartphone, it means you have great taste when it comes to gaming. The game series saw its debut almost a quarter of a century ago, and it had some decent success.
According to Polygon.com, Nintendo itself announced the arrival of the 1998 original title “Banjo Kazooie” to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscription service. We’re talking about the same game for Nintendo 64 released by the Rare firm.
Banjo-Kazooie will be available starting TODAY
Today, January 20, Banjo Kazooie will be available to play via Nintendo Switch Online.
Whether you want to run into a witch, fairies, monsters, or you want to make your way through different environments where you can run through snow, swim, and more, Banjo Kazooie has them all!
Here’s how Nintendo describes the famous game:
It all starts when the wicked witch Gruntilda kidnaps Tooty, Banjo’s little sister, and Banjo and Kazooie set out to bring her back—venturing from Spiral Mountain, along the shark-infested coastline of Treasure Trove Cove, through the icy perils of Freezeezy Peak, and beyond. But with Kazooie spending most of her time inside Banjo’s backpack, they’re like two heroes in one! Though they may squabble from time to time, with the two of them working together, nothing can stand in their way. Now you can join them on this journey into a magical world of adventure!
When it comes to the history of Banjo Kazooie for handheld devices, it looks pretty interesting. There have been ‘Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty’s Revenge’ released in 2003 and ‘Banjo Pilot’ released two years later.
As for console games, the famous game series has been distributed as the original ‘Banjo Kazooie’ from 1998, ‘Banjo Tooie’ in 2000, and ‘Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts’ from 2008.
