Banjo-Kazooie Wiki

The Banjo-Tooie Official Player's Guide is a strategy/walkthrough guidebook released in 2000 to accompany the release of Banjo-Tooie. The book was created as part of the Nintendo Power magazine and provides a detailed guide to every aspect of the accompanying game, including how to obtain every collectible, how to control the game and more.


The book begins with a short introduction to the guide before explaining the basic information a new player would need to play the game, including the main characters, basic and advanced controls, Humba Wumba transformations, items and more. The largest section of the book is dedicated to the walkthrough of the game, guiding the player through the overworld and various levels, providing instructions to obtain each and every collectible accompanied by helpful maps and visual guides. Throughout the book, several unique graphics and artwork pieces are displayed to add context to the game and Banjo universe, including a large fold-out map of the entirety of the Isle O' Hags. The final section of the book, or "Eggstra Attractions", outlines the bonus features and secrets of the game including replay mode, multiplayer mode and Cheato codes.
