When Banjo Kazooie was first released back in 1998 for the Nintendo 64 many people were surprised with how well the game in terms of sales. In fact, many people were surprised with how good the overall game itself was.  Shortly, after Banjo Kazooie was released the game had managed to sell over 3 million units worldwide for the N64.  Despite, having a basic plot Banjo Kazooie was an adventurous platform game that seemed more difficult than it actually was.   It was one of the few action adventure platform games for the Nintendo 64 that was enjoyable next to Super Mario 64.  Along with Banjo Kazooie the sequel entitled Banjo Tooie was also a title that many people enjoyed for the N64.  Following the release of Banjo Tooie for the N64 it managed to sell over one million units worldwide.  Despite, not selling as much as its predecessor Banjo Tooie was still considered to be a successful platform title for the N64.

Banjo Tooie had managed to sell over 1 million units worldwide for the Nintendo 64 following its release.   Even though, Banjo Tooie did not sell as much as its predecessor the game still managed to be one  best in the entire series.  Shortly, after the release of Banjo Tooie Rate began to develop titles for the Game Boy Advance.  Having Banjo Kazooie games on the Game Boy Advance felt different but people who were fans of the series still enjoyed both games.  Both Banjo-Pilot and Grunty’s Revenge were titles that deviated from usual gameplay seen on the N64.  However, the change in look and in gameplay added to the appeal for both games.

When Banjo Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts was released for the Xbox 360 back in 2008 the visual design for the game was impressive.   While the game was received positively by those who were long time fans of the Banjo Kazooie series the game did not do too well in terms of sales.  Some people would probably argue that Banjo Kazooie could have done much better on the Nintendo Wii opposed to the Xbox 360.   The platform genre of gaming was not as popular on the Xbox 360 as it was on Nintendo Consoles.  In fact, most of the games that were popular for the Xbox 360 at the time were first person shooter titles.  Besides the Banjo Kazooie series had originally became popular through Nintendo based consoles.   If Banjo Kazooie made a return to the Nintendo Switch it would definitely be something that would turn the heads of people who were fans of the series during the late 90’s-early 00’s.   It’s also quite possible that Banjo Kazooie would do better on the Nintendo Switch than it did the Xbox 360 back in 2008.
