When it comes to the catalog, the future begins to take shape. Banjo-Kazooie, the anthropomorphic adventurer couple created by RARE is owned by Microsoft, but the original Nintendo 64 games will be available from January. Beyond that date, other titles such as The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask will be released later.
