|Jiggywikki has moved off Banjo-Kazooie FANDOM. The articles, images, and categories are still being reworked for Jiggywikki.|
|Additionally, many of the articles have previously contained speculative or inaccurate information, both of which are not tolerated on a factual wiki. If anyone is caught adding this type of information, it will immediately be removed. Do not take artwork from DK Vine, because they were edited with Photoshop.
Unconfirmed yet considerable facts can be added, but only if explicitly mentioned as a possibility backed by evidence, such as reliable sources. For example, Rare Scribes, official Twitter accounts, or even video interviews are trustworthy because they qualify as primary sources.
Rare Ltd. (formerly known as Rareware) is a British video game developer that created the Banjo-Kazooie series. They are also best known for developing some other games, including Donkey Kong Country and Goldeneye 007.
Prior to the Nintendo GameCube era, Rare was a second party developer for Nintendo, meaning all of their were exclusively published on Nintendo consoles. In September 2002, Microsoft bought the entire company from Nintendo. Since then, Rare has been a first party developer for Microsoft, and would exclusively publish their home console titles on Xbox systems, including Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts.
Since Xbox has no portable competitor, Rare's handheld still developed some titles for the Game Boy Advance, including Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge and Banjo-Pilot. Their handheld division was shut down in 2008, leaving for no future handheld installments of Banjo-Kazooie.
