Rareware left an undeniable mark in Nintendo history thanks to the Donkey Kong Country series, but it’s the old bear and bird that endeared them to many. Banjo-Kazooie is now playable via Switch Online, and though the most googly-eyed developer of our childhoods is a part of the ever-growing Xbox family these days, they still had some kind words for this N64 homecoming.

Along with this lovely photo complete with a B&K inspired Joy-Con color choice, Rare shared a Banjo-Kazooie primer on the series. This includes all the series’ console titles (sorry Grunty’s Revenge and Banjo-Pilot) as well as some info and resources for anyone just learning about this backpack-toting duo.

It’s a nice reflection, and even nicer to see Rare recognizing their iconic creation in a world where Sea of Thieves is their bread and butter. More power to them, but here’s hoping more of their library joins the Switch Online Expansion Pack.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
