  • Banjo's backpack has a little Rare badge affixed to it. The backpack also has a second flap at its base now, which Kazooie opens up during the Talon Trot or backwards Egg Firing. Steve Mayles originally wanted to animate the characters this way when developing Banjo-Kazooie, but because of the N64's processing limitations he was unable to add an extra skeletal joint for it.[2]
