Rare designer Gregg Mayles has recently been divulging a treasure trove of information on his Twitter account. The latest revelation is that before Kazooie, Banjo had a dog as his companion. The dog’s name was Dinger the Dog and was designed by Steve Mayles. Another revelation is that Dinger the Dog was originally going to be in Dream before the project morphed into Banjo Kazooie.
