Is this true? I saw a post about this on a certain website which we are not supposed to talk about(Gamespot)and I have since been in a state of feverish anticipation.

Banjo-Kazooie is one of my favorite childhood video games and I would love to find out if this is fact or fiction.

Bombs away!

Would it stay under the size requirements?

Excellent!  Those were two of my favorite N64 games when I had one.

cant wait to play those. it makes sense considering that the N64 cartridges were about 100Mb if not less

How come Banjo made it through when Goldeneye 64 didn't because Iwata didn't allow it? O.o
