Earlier this week, we learned Microsoft was bringing Xbox Live, a service for Xbox users, to Nintendo Switch and other platforms.
Grant Kirkhope, composer for Banjo-Kazooie and Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, hopes the arrival of Xbox Live would mean he could play Banjo-Kazooie and Tooie on Nintendo Switch again. Here’s the tweet that says just that:
So with Xbox live coming to Switch, does that mean we can play Banjo-Kazooie and Tooie on a Nintendo system again?

Banjo-Kazooie and Tooie were Nintendo IP before RARE was acquired by Microsoft. Although we want to be as optimistic as Kirkhope, chances are it’s not going to happen.
What do you think?
