During the latest Nintendo Direct, fans got a new look at The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdombut this latest trailer lent itself to some comparisons with Banjo-Kazooie: nuts and boltsand now RARE reacted to the situation.
TLoZ: Tears of the Kingdom showed fans new episodes and gameplay, including newly built ground and air vehicles. Details about them are sparse, but they remarkably share the same colors as Link’s new arm.
The new vehicles in The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom are certainly exciting, but their overall design has brought Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts (and its vehicles) to the minds of many fans.
There were several doctored images with the Nuts and Bolts logo in Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom and comments, quickly becoming an online meme and RARE didn’t let a moment go by without contributing.
Taking to their official Twitter account, RARE shared an image from Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts featuring the titular duo in an air vehicle, immediately evoking Link’s new air vehicle.
The text reminds fans that the game is available through Rare Repla and Xbox Game Pass, but the account says it “felt an obligation to remind everyone, that’s all. She didn’t. for anything in particular.” , that it did so because of comparisons to the new Zelda game. Just as Rare has seen fit to have fun with comparisons, so have fans.
