Today Nintendo revealed Banjo-Kazooie is coming to the Nintendo 64 games line-up for the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack. This has been made possible by Rare, who have cooperated with Nintendo on bringing Banjo-Kazooie to the Switch.

Always a pleasure to work with our good friends at Nintendo, I’m a big fan of #NintendoSwitchOnline and it’s really important to preserve classic games for future generations to play. Banjo and other @RareLtd classics also available on @XboxGamePass and as part of #RareReplay 🎮 https://t.co/RV0Gx0fbhh

It’s not the first time Rare and Nintendo have worked together during the Switch-era. Banjo-Kazooie is also a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Banjo-Kazooie N64 will be available in January.

You are mad right now about this? You are 2 years late to this party bro!

Besides all the reported issues with N64 emulation on Switch, the thing that really irritates me about their implementation of virtual console games on Switch is the way they have that ‘1P’ (one player) icon on screen at all times. It’s so distracting. Just give me the game window and black borders. They always have to overcomplicate something. I haven’t signed up for the N64 add on - I presume you’re still not able to turn off the 1P icon in options?
