However, as Rare always owned Banjo's copyrights and he was going to be promoting Microsoft related systems and games, he and Conker were replaced with Tiny Kong and Dixie Kong respectively, in the remake sequel Diddy Kong Racing DS.
Banjo is known to be the hero of Spiral Mountain, and he resides there with his pal Kazooie, his sister Tooty, and many other friends such as Mumbo Jumbo and Bottles. His own nemesis is a witch known as Gruntilda.
Banjo & Kazooie were revealed as playable characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate alongside the Dragon Quest Heroes in the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct. Their debut showed Donkey Kong, Diddy Kong, and even King K. Rool cheering about their appearance.
- Banjo's design appears to be modeled after and inspired by the Brothers Bear from Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!.
- Kazooie is considered absent during Banjo's debut appearance because she doesn't appear in any moment with Banjo in Diddy Kong Racing. Despite this, she was mentioned in the manual.
