Update [Fri 21st Jan, 2022 01:45 GMT]: Banjo-Kazooie has now been added to NSO's N64 Expansion Pack service. Enjoy!
Original article [Wed 19th Jan, 2022 01:30 GMT]: Xbox isn't the only one that has some exciting announcements to share this week. Nintendo (with the cooperation of Rare and Microsoft, we guess...) has just locked in a release date for the Switch Online version of Banjo-Kazooie.
While we've known the classic 3D platformer was coming to Nintendo's Switch Online service since last year, Nintendo has now confirmed it will be arriving tomorrow on 20th January for all 'Expansion Pack' subscribers.
Embark on a wild quest with an unlikely pair! The adventures of Banjo and Kazooie begin here! Banjo-Kazooie is coming to #NintendoSwitch for #NintendoSwitchOnline + Expansion Pack members on 1/20! #Nintendo64
Ahead of the N64 game's return, Nintendo has uploaded the trailer to its YouTube channel - giving fans an idea of what it will look like running on the Switch. While it's not necessarily the biggest news related to Microsoft today, we're sure many Nintendo fans are looking forward to reuniting with Rare's famous bird and bear duo.
