Nintendo Switch owners are counting down to the launch of Banjo-Kazooie.

Banjo-Kazooie, originally released in 1998, is one of the best games ever to hit the Nintendo 64.

The Nintendo Switch version of Banjo-Kazooie has a release date of January 21. There is no official launch time, although new Nintendo games often go live around 3pm GMT.

Unfortunately, Banjo-Kazooie will not be for sale in the traditional sense.

Instead, Banjo-Kazooie will be launched as part of the Nintendo Switch Online subscription service, specifically the premium Expansion Pack tier.

“The iconic bear and bird duo is eager to hit Nintendo Switch! Banjo-Kazooie joins the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack lineup on 21/01,” explains Nintendo.

As a reminder, Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack costs £34.99 for an annual subscription, or £59.99 as part of a family subscription.

As part of the subscription, members can play a selection of N64 and Sega Mega Drive games, as well as the SNES and NES titles available in the standard tier.

Games include Super Mario 64, Star Fox 64 and Sin and Punishment on N64 as well as Zelda Ocarina of Time and Mario Tennis.

On the Mega Drive side are games like Streets of Rage 2, Gunstar Heroes and Phantasy Star 4.

Nintendo Switch Online also gives subscribers access to online multiplayer and cloud storage.

More games will be released in the coming months, such as Majora’s Mask and F-Zero X.

Sadly, there’s no sign of Goldeneye, though rumors suggest the classic shooter may be coming to Xbox.
