One night, as the four sit down at a table in Banjo's house to play cards, a huge rumbling noise comes from outside. The rumbling is actually Gruntilda's sisters: the tall and skinny Mingella, and the short and fat Blobbelda, who have come in their drilling machine to release Grunty from under the rock.

Planned but initially scrapped was a data transfer plan that would allow players to transfer data from Banjo-Kazooie (1998) to this game and back, however this was scrapped due to the fact that Rare could not find a way to transfer data from one Nintendo 64 cartridge to another without going over-budget.
