Issue 139 of Nintendo Power featured Banjo, Kazooie, Mumbo, and a purple and green Jinjo on the cover.

This issue began Nintendo Power's two-part abridged Banjo-Tooie strategy guide on page 16. It covered the first four worlds: Mayahem Temple, Glitter Gulch Mine, Witchyworld, and Jolly Roger's Lagoon. It also covered the minigames in small detail. The coverage ended on page 26.

The abridged strategy guide continued in Nintendo Power Volume 140
