Banjo and Kazooie are coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate!

After a massive troll from the Duck Hunt dog, yes, Microsoft told us to watch the Nintendo Direct, and for good reason: Banjo Kazooie is coming to Smash. Microsoft and Nintendo have buddied up for some time, and now it's really coming ...

This Super Mario 64 x Banjo-Kazooie mod is so surreal

If I had seen this mod back in the Nintendo 64 days, I would've lost my mind. It's essentially a clever mash-up of Banjo-Kazooie and Super Mario 64, and while Mario running around Spiral Mountain is impressive in its own right, the fan crea...

Off-camera, Banjo Tooie houses some pretty creepy stuff

YouTuber Shesez has a pretty neat little program called "Boundary Leak," where they take a look at off-camera objects in retro games. As we've seen many times before developers either house holdover objects in random places they assume play...

Is Grant Kirkhope making another DK Rap?

One of the more infamous pieces of music from Nintendo's library of tunes is the DK Rap from Donkey Kong 64. That mad display of aural madness was crafted by Grant Kirkhope, who is basically the songwriter of our childhoods. Since he is com...

I'll never look at Banjo's hips the same way

Rare is still making videos recounting what it was like behind the scenes on Banjo-Kazooie, and I'm still fascinated. Today, it's five (more) things we probably didn't know. As discussed in the video, the game's musical intro was originall...

Rare had a cool idea for a Banjo-Kazooie remake

I'm way behind on watching those documentary shorts included in Rare Replay and I might never catch up unless I set aside time to see them on YouTube. Rare uploaded this video today detailing how it arrived at Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolt...

E3 Predictions: Banjo-Threeie and Battletoads

If any game would be described as a "uniquely RARE game" and a "career highlight" it would be Banjo-Threeie, which may very well be getting announced at E3 next week. The URL banjothreeie.com used to redirect to the Rare website, but not an...

Yooka-Laylee is the successor to Banjo-Kazooie

Yooka. Laylee. Yooka-Laylee. Yep, they've still got it! We've talked about Project Ukulele a few times now, but, quickly: it's a vibrant 3D platformer in development at Playtonic, a fresh new studio founded by former Rare developers. Compos...

Xbox boss would like to see Banjo-Kazooie as Smash Bros. DLC

Head of Xbox Phil Spencer likes to talk about games. However, that doesn't mean that he restricts himself to only talking about titles that his company's working on. No, he'll discuss anything, even Nintendo properties. When a fan asked on ...

David Wise and Grant Kirkhope join Project Ukulele

I need to take some deep breaths here. Former Rare developers are creating a spiritual successor to "those fondly remembered platforming adventures we built in the past," and they've brought on Grant Kirkhope, David Wise, and Steve Burke t...

Could this be it? A true Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor?

We've been let down before, but I'm unable to contain my enthusiasm for Playtonic Games' Project Ukulele, a new platforming adventure from the people we want making this type of game. Formed by six former Rare staffers, the studio includes ...

Oh hey, an excuse to talk about Banjo-Kazooie

Before 4J Studios became involved with the console versions of Minecraft, it ported Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie to Xbox Live Arcade -- rather well, I might add. If you haven't yet played them on Xbox 360, they're worth a revisit, and you ...

That Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor 'fell to bits'

Too good to be true, I worried, when first hearing about a spiritual successor to the Banjo-Kazooie series that was to be made by former Rare staffers. "Mingy Jongo." Perhaps that name still rests in your memory. I had forgotten the project...
