Banjo-Kazooie is a 3D action-adventure game from Rare. Banjo’s little sister Tooty ended up being kidnapped by Gruntilda the witch. They have to save her before Gruntilda steels here good looks. This means visiting different worlds, finding collectibles, and also setting additional captured characters called Jinjos free. The game ended up spawning two sequels, Banjo-Tooie on the N64 and Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts for the Xbox One. There were also two GBA games, Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty’s Revenge and Banjo-Pilot.

This will mark the second major Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack addition since its launch. In December 2021, the original Paper Mario appeared in the game library.

Banjo-Kazooie will join the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack lineup in January 2022. The game is immediately available for the Nintendo 64 and Xbox 360.
