Playing the demo for the new Smash Bros yesterday had me feeling nostalgic for things that will never be so I drew a bear and bird.Fun fact: when I was a little baby nerd playing the original Smash Bros, I desperately wanted a sequel where Banjo & Kazooie (and Mumbo Jumbo) were playable characters. Then Rare sold to Microsoft, and the rest is history.BUT watching footage for the Duck Hunt dog makes him look like the closest we’ll ever get to seeing these two in game, and that makes me kinda happy all the same.

Banjo-Tooie truly is the Darker and Edgier version of Banjo-Kazooie

Banjo-Kazooie was about rescuing Banjo’s kidnapped sister whose beauty Grunty wants to steal in some weird plot. But it was never really threatening, per sé. Grunty calls you names in her rhymes, everything was goofy and cartoony, and the music reflected just that. It seemed more like a fairy tale combined with a saturday morning cartoon.

Whereas Banjo-Tooie begins with Grunty getting revived as a creepy skeleton and stopping her silly rhyming, Bottles getting murdered, Spiral Mountain in ruins, and a soundtrack that’s more atmospheric than melodic. The silly whimsy of the previous game is hard to find and everything seems grander, more epic. Did I mention Grunty wants to blast the entire island rather than stealing someone’s beauty? Yeah.
