You may recall that, late last year, Nintendo announced that Banjo-Kazooie would be one of the Nintendo 64 games coming to the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscription service in the future. You may also recall that, last month, they announced that it would be arriving in January.

Well, there is now an exact date. Nintendo has announced that “Banjo-Kazooie is coming to Nintendo Switch for Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack members on January 20th”. Nintendo of America tweeted the news on their official Twitter account, so you can see their tweet down below.

  1. So I guess we’re gonna get Kirby 64 in march , really hope they cut out the one game a month stuff cause it seems like their dragging it to see how many people will buy into this till October since that would mark a year since they released it, this still feels so scummy and I’m hoping they add some changes to the service if they expect people to invest in this.

      1. Nah even from a basic marketing sense he’s correct. Switch online is required to play games online (lol duh), but the expansion pack isn’t. The expansion pack costs a premium that not everyone wants to give without getting a lot in return. Animal Crossing DLC is a niche, so that alone can’t be worth it, Mega Drive games have largely been forgotten already, so that leaves the customer with the N64 games. Frankly the selection of games is decent; it’s got a little bit for everyone, but decent doesn’t cut it for a premium priced product. I have friends who have played each game already and they’ve already decided that they won’t ever go back to them rendering the game selection even smaller in comparison. What would make NSO Expansion better is a literally just adding more worthwhile games, but the issue is that they slowly bring us those games via a drip feed, one a month deal. Why should people buy the expansion pass now instead of waiting until later when there are significantly more worthwhile games down the line? That’s why it feels scummy to felix, I’m guessing. We’re paying for something that is incomplete, and that’s crap

            1. Why would they need to go to an Xbox site? can someone not like xbox and nintendo at the same time? or do you have nothing else to say when someone provides a valid counter argument to your assumption?

  2. It’s sort of stupid they couldn’t have told us the date when they first announced Banjo-Kazooie was coming to the empty expansion pack in January the first place.

  3. Have they fixed the N64 games yet? You know that the US version of Paper Mario has laggy menus and will 100% crash and lose save data if you die with Watt in your party? Hackers have figured out how to fix this issue. I’m not hacking my Switch to fix something that Nintendo should fix because I’M PAYING A YEARLY FEE FOR IT.

      1. That doesn’t change anything I said. In fact, it makes Nintendo look worse for not fixing the problem like it’s an impossible fix.

          1. It happens when you get a game over with Watt in your party. The electric particles cause a crash on that screen because of some variables only present in the US rom. It’s bizarre

    1. I haven’t dealt with laggy menus, but yeah I seen people activate the watt glitch, I use the emulator saves system on the service though cause I’m just a bit paranoid with activating any glitch on the service.

  4. I been waiting all day for Banjo-Kazooie. Just admit yall didnt get the agreement with Microsoft and lied just to get people to get the expansion pak. Come on tell the truth shame the devil.
