This Is The ORIGINAL Mumbo’s Wand

So there’s a newly created fan engine out there called Mumbo’s Wand. It’s still in the development stages, but its coming along quite nicely. The purpose of the engine is to allow anyone to basically customize any Banjo-Kazooie level in whatever way suits the user. Pretty cool, right? Yeah, it is, but here’s the thing: it isn’t the first fan-made service to be developed that goes by that same name.

In 2008, in celebration of the ten-year anniversary of Banjo-Kazooie, a fan-made video was developed by Mario “Lupaie” Paiano exclusively for Rare-Elite a.k.a RareFanDaBase. That video was called Mumbo’s Wand as it featured none other than Mumbo’s Wand itself giving a retrospective of the series. You can watch the video below…

As previously said, that new fan engine is great, but I just want to raise awareness and reinforce the fact that there already was a Mumbo’s Wand and the above video is it. It’s the original Mumbo’s Wand and should never be forgotten nor confused with the in-development fan engine.
