I have a question.

Yes, that's right and it's related to some pictures. Does anybody have a clue where the two pictures showing the Banjo Kazooie shower, and the Donkey Kong image in Banjos house came from?

The two pics can be found in this article:

http://rarewitchproject.com/?id=1274

Examining the pictures, it looks like they were originally in some magazine, but I'm not sure what. Usually, they had a little watermark on them if it was uploaded on Nintendo's or Nintendojos website. I've been downloading and looking through old e3/spaceworld articles on Banjo-Kazooie but haven't come up with anything yet...

So does anyone have an idea of where these came from?

I heard, from the government, that the aliens posted them!

Seriously, I believe they came from a magazine. Looking at the quality, I'd say so.

I think it was in an issue of Nintendo Power, but I'm not 100% sure

I don't think, in 1998, someone could of faked that. Then again, I would have no clue.

I doubt it, I just think the quality is a bit bad, and it's most likely from an issue of Nintendo Power.

Welcome back treecko.
And the light and quality of the pictures bad, suggesting it is infact from a magazine. Which one i'm unsure of.

Interesting,

So nobody so far knows where these came from. I'm going to check with some Nintendo Power Nerds (who have every issue) on Retromags to see if they can recall any magazines that contain these images.

Well isn't that what makes it easier to fake. a bad quality pic. also if you look at the beta stuff, it looks like it was added in.
