Guh-huh! Banjo fans rejoice because at long last, we have a date for when Banjo-Kazooie will be coming to the Nintendo 64 – Nintendo Switch Online library. The Bear & Bird duo will be available on the service on January 20th, 2022, for the US and Jan 21st, 2022 for Europe (Most likely a midnight launch for Europe)
This announcement comes from a new trailer that Nintendo uploaded to their YouTube channel as well as their social media handles. The trailer is about 1:26 minutes long and if you want to check it out, you can see it for yourselves below.
You are probably well aware of this already but for those that aren’t, an active Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscription to play this game and any other Nintendo 64 game as part of the Nintendo 64 – Nintendo Switch Online service.
This action game, released for the Nintendo 64™ console in 1998, features an unlikely pair: a Honey Bear named Banjo and a Breegull named Kazooie. Together, the duo embark on a wild quest that makes use of their wide range of combined special moves.
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!
