Fangamer is the king of video game merchandise that is paradoxically as cool as it is nerdy, and it covers so many beloved franchises these days. Today, even more cool merchandise has joined its ranks as Rare has announced that Jinjo Plushes from the Banjo-Kazooie series are on sale there now for $24. They come in five different colors, and if you buy them all, the price is discounted to $89! Whether you also receive a mystical floating Jiggy with it remains to be seen. But jokes aside, there is additionally a Banjo-Kazooie Bear Necessities Tote Bag for $19, and this really does come with a bonus PVC charm Jiggy.
*Whistles in your direction* LOOK! @Fangamer have launched two new Banjo-Kazooie lines – a terrific Tote Bag and a palette of squishable Jinjo Plushes that won't shout for help every five seconds! Here's a handy link, should anything take your fancy: https://t.co/PomT0ZEFq1 pic.twitter.com/92vzRkSXpp

You don’t have to buy all five Jinjo Plushes to get a discount; each extra color you buy will offer an increasingly good discount. They are about six inches tall when sitting, the perfect size to litter your bed, couch, or cabinet with.
Cool Fangamer merchandise like plushes and tote bags is likely the closest thing to a new game we’re going to get in the Banjo-Kazooie franchise for a while. However, that’s not the result of any Microsoft mandate. Rather, Xbox head Phil Spencer has basically said it’s up to Rare whether it wants to continue the franchise.
