There's a bit that says:
- Later, the plot for the game was entirely revised, and the title Banjo-Kazooie given to the game. The plot was roughly the same as it now is, other than Tooty still being Banjo's girlfriend Piccolo.
- Due to legal reasons, Rare had to rename the game Banjo-Kazooie, changing Kazooie's name in the process. For unknown reasons, they also decided to change Piccolo's name to Tooty, and make her Banjo's sister.
However, there's a mistake there - it can't have been renamed from Banjo-Kazooie to Banjo-Kazooie! Avengah 10:54, 5 May 2008 (BST)
