Here's something you didn't know you needed until now: A mod that lets you goof around in part of The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker as Banjo and Kazooie. Thanks to The Legend of Banjo-Kazooie: The Bear Waker, the honey bear and the red-crested breegull will soon be able to fly, swim, and fling eggs around the tropical paradise of Outset Island.
The mod is the handiwork of Kurko Mods, which has a specialty in jamming Banjo and Kazooie into other game properties. The Bear Waker is actually meant to tide fans over until Kurko finishes a mod called "Jiggies in Time" that lets Banjo and Kazooie go ripping back and forth through The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
The Bear Waker, which is due out later this month, is a comparatively small project. It still looks to be lots of fun, though. The finished product will let you collect 10 Jiggies, 100 notes, and two honeycombs. You can explore the entirety of Outset Island, as well as a few sub areas. There's even a Mumbo transformation for you to try out, and Banjo-Kazooie enemies to squash (in lieu of Outset Island's native pig population, I suppose).
Banjo-Kazooie was originally conceived by Rare when the studio made games exclusively for Nintendo. The series garnered a lot of fans on the N64—enough that Banjo and Kazooie recently earned their Golden Ticket to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's roster. Not bad for a company whose famous logo is based on a golden roll of toilet paper.
