A new rom hack for Bajno Kazooie has been released. It's called The Legend of Banjo-Kazooie - The Jiggies of Time, and for more information and a download link for the patch, go to:


https://n64today.com/2020/07/25/banjo-kazooie-jiggies-of-time/


According to that web page:

"Kurko [the author of the mod] has been working on this mod for the past five years. It’s a full-length game that contains nine worlds with 100 Jiggies, 900 musical notes, and a ton of Easter eggs to find.

To call Jiggies of Time a labour of love just wouldn’t do it justice. This is a staggering achievement in N64 modding, and without doubt the best N64 mod to date.



At its core, The Legend of Banjo-Kazooie: The Jiggies of Time is still a Banjo-Kazooie game. It plays just like the bear ‘n’ bird’s original N64 adventure, but set in Ocarina of Time’s world.

Something has gone wrong in the land of Hyrule. The wicked witch Gruntilda has somehow sidelined Ganondorf and decided to take the kingdom for herself. Young Link apparently isn’t up to the task of giving her the boot, and so the responsibility falls to Banjo and Kazooie.



Kurko has done a fantastic job of merging the two universes together. The world of Ocarina of Time is lovingly recreated, managing to feel both familiar and fresh at the same time.

Classic locations, such as Kokiri Forest, Kakariko Village and Death Mountain are instantly recognisable by their layout. That said, they’re not one-to-one replicas – and rightly so.





Everything is decorated and styled to look like the world of Banjo-Kazooie. Even the enemies are re-skinned to resemble classic Zelda creatures. Not only that, but Kurko has used creative licence to slightly alter or outright expand areas with new features.

As a result, Jiggies of Time feels very much like its own game, rather than an awkward retread through an already well-trodden world. It really strikes a perfect balance.



Kurko has stuffed the game full of Nintendo and Rare references.

Everywhere you go, you’ll stumble upon classic game boxes and other Easter eggs that’ll make you smile. The amount of effort that has gone into some of these is truly astonishing.
