Is this the closest we'll ever get to Banjo Kazooie on Xbox One?

Kinect Sports Rivals developer Rare has rifled through its old titles to produce a set of DLC items revolving around Banjo Kazooie and other titles, Microsoft has announced.

Alongside Banjo Kazooie, the new DLC packs also include Battletoads, Blast Corps, Perfect Dark, and Viva Pinata. Each pack includes a handful of new challenges and some unlockable items.

There's also a free update, which adds new challenges based on your choice of team, and has you squaring off against other members of Eagle Legion, Viper Network, or Wolf Clan. I'm a Viper Network guy myself, which is basically the Kinect Sports Rivals version of Slytherin.

"Kinect Sports Rivals is an inconsistent collection that will get you up off the couch and moving around for a bit of mild fun," said GameSpot's Carolyn Petit in her Kinect Sports Rivals review, "but that's about the best you can say for it."
