In 2003, an inter-sequel that takes place between the first two games, Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge, was released for the Game Boy Advance, and in 2005, a spin-off racing game, Banjo-Pilot, was also made for the Game Boy Advance. Two more games based on Grunty's Revenge, titled Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge Mobile and Banjo-Kazooie: Grunty's Revenge Missions, were later made available as applications for download on cell phones.
Although all four titles in the series were made for Nintendo systems, Rare was bought by Microsoft in September of 2002. The next game in the series was therefore produced for the Xbox 360. That game, titled Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts, was released in November of 2008. To celebrate this release, Microsoft and Rare also released updated versions of the original Banjo-Kazooie in December 2008 and Banjo-Tooie in April 2009 availabe for download on Xbox Live Arcade.
