Banjo-Tooie Tips

Super long Kazooie jump with Kazooie only
This is a technique I used frequently before I learned Glide:

First get a running start in the direction you want to jump. Use Wing Whack in the air (continuing to press forward in the desired direction). After the Wing Whack is completed, press the A button for an almost assured soft landing.

Note: This is NOT a substitute for the glide move.
