Yes, Banjo and Kazooie are making a guest appearance in Sega's Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing, something that will likely please Rare fans as much as it will send Nights fans into a petition-signing, blood-boiling frenzy.

The Xbox 360 version looks to have taken advantage of Sega's offer to include bonus mascot characters in the form of Rare's famous bird and bear. And Microsoft has apparently given Sega and developers Sumo Digital the green light to include Xbox 360 Avatars.

Hey, it's not Gum from Jet Set Radio in a kart shaped like an in-line skate, but I suppose it'll have to do. I mean, Sega was nice enough to include Shadow the Hedgehog, so how can we possibly complain?
