Banjo-Pilot is the fourth game coming from the Banjo Kazooie series. Banjo-Pilot was released on January 10, 2005 in North America by the game developer, Rare, and publisher, THQ. Banjo-Pilot is not like the other Banjo Kazooie games. Banjo Pilot revolves around a racing type theme rather than adventure in the previous Banjo-Kazooie video games. Banjo-Pilot is a racing game involving planes racing against other Banjo-Kazooie characters. The game offers a large variety of characters to play, different modes in the game, as well, many long tracks and different difficulties. Banjo-Pilot is compared similar to Diddy Kong Racing/DS.

  • This game was officially going to be Diddy Kong Pilot, but got changed as Rare moved away from Nintendo and to Microsoft and no longer gained the rights to the Donkey Kong characters, forcing them to change the characters to the Banjo-Kazooie ones.
