Because it's a ROM. Meaning they didn't change anything from the original 1998 build.Yes, but why isn’t it in the switch version as the ip is owned by MS.
Banjo control issues is far more tolerable than the shitty camera that Mario 64 has. The camera issues also makes Mario control like shit because of how bad it is. My daughter tried to play Mario 64 and gave up after an hour because she said the camera was really bad. When she played Banjo, she didn't have much issue and made it quite far before she needed my help.Banjo has it's own camera issues. Not to Banjo controls like shit compared to Mario 64. Don't get me wrong, it's good, but not in the same league as SM64.
I think it’s gracious of MS to be honest .Because it's a ROM. Meaning they didn't change anything from the original 1998 build.
NOTE: This emulator supports texture swapping, but they didn't bother with parts in the video that actually look bad, if Microsoft didn't require them to change it then of course they didn't.
Probably also keeps the start menu this:
Instead of this:
Both have platforming to collect stuff. Both are 3D platformers and collectathons.Never really got the Mario 64 comparison. 3D platformer vs. collectathon. Completely different games.
Switch 64 emulation is fine. Some games have tiny one off things that ultimately doesn’t matter to the gameplay. I’ve played several games from start to finish and had no issues.Bit damning that people are saying n64 emulation on the switch is so shit play that I should look elsewhere to play BK.
Banjo-Kazooie has released on Nintendo Switch via the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack. This 3D Collect-a-thon platformer is essential to the genre and is back on Nintendo consoles! Here are 14 minutes of gameplay featuring the first level, Mumbo's Mountain where Banjo and Kazooie learn to Talon Trot and get transformed into a termite. Banjo Kazooie released on Nintendo 64 Online on January 20th, 2022
Same. Unfortunately so many want subscription only services and this is the only way to play it on the Switch. And people keep telling me other companies with sub services won’t eventually tie their games down to a sub service like Nintendo is doing here…I wish I could just buy the game on Switch. I don’t want to sign up for Nintendo’s online thing just so I can play N64 games.
The sticks might be fixable, here is a good video to draw inspiration from:Incidentally, has anyone ever managed to fix their N64 analogue stick?
The controller that came with my console is completely busted. The console won’t even detect it half the time, and after a minute on Spiral Mountain the right half of the stick’s range stopped registering. I took out my second controller and while it works mostly fine, it drifts towards the Up position so that Banjo can’t stay still.
I have two more controllers in my basement and they’re newer and less used than these two, but I’m wondering if there’s a decent replacement other than those $125 steel sticks (that are always sold out anyway).

For me this method is just more of the same. We've had 3 generations of consoles with retrocompatibility, from Wii, Wii U and now Switch, and for every one of them, they changed the online service altogether and didn't allow you to migrate your purchases.Yeah Id love if they bring back Virtual Console. Im sure they can do both subscription service and shop/virtual console for retro games
