She wants to be the prettiest in the world. The prettiest in the world, is Tootie. Tootie is Banjo's beloved sister, and Gruntilda is fed up with being ugly. She sets off to kidnap Banjo's sister. Determined, Banjo and Kazooie sets off to Grunty's lair to rescue his sister. Banjo and Kazooie fight vicious monsters, unlock doors, and get through dilemmas and rescue their sister, Tootie, before Gruntilda uses her machine to transfer Tootie's prettiness to herself. Banjo-Kazooie is the first video game in the series, Banjo-Kazooie.

[edit] History

Banjo-Kazooie was originally going to be called Dream for the SNES (Super Nintendo Entertainment System). It was supposed to star a boy named Edison who owned a wooden sword and got into trouble with some pirates led by Captain Blackeye. It was supposed to star a rabbit that looked like a man, a dopey dog and a bear (Banjo). Later the game then starred Banjo.

Banjo-Kazooie was re-released on the XBox LIVE ARCADE, as Banjo-Kazooie, now utilizing the dropped feature Stop 'N' Swop with Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, and with crisper graphics.
