Rare's classic platformer Banjo-Kazooie is getting re-released tomorrow, through the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack. With Nintendo 64 titles gradually arriving as part of this service, this next game goes live tomorrow on January 20.
Announced through a Nintendo of America tweet, this marks the 11th N64 title now available to subscribers, a line-up that includes Star Fox 64, Super Mario 64 and Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. Banjo-Kazooie follows on from Paper Mario, which became available last December.

When it was initially announced last month, Rare - now a Microsoft-owned developer - provided this statement:
"It’s a pleasure to be ushering the bear and bird onto Nintendo’s latest console, offering another modern way (alongside Xbox Game Pass and Rare Replay) to savour its many collectibles and googly eyes.”
While Nintendo previously outlined further games planned for the service - Pokémon Snap, The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask, Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards, Mario Golf and F-Zero X - we don't know when they'll arrive yet. Make sure to follow us for more gaming news and updates once we know.
