Expresso the Ostrich from Donkey Kong Country appears as a cameo in Banjo-Pilot - this seems to be an accidental leftover from the game's cancelled iteration as Diddy Kong Pilot, as Nintendo is not mentioned whatsoever in the copyright info for Banjo-Pilot beyond simply licensing the game for its platforms.
A tilt pack was originally to come with the game, however the feature was removed due to problems when trying to view the screen.
A new character named Redneck Kong was to be a racer in the original Diddy Kong Pilot, however he was later intended to be replaced with Candy Kong.
Before Rare was acquired by Microsoft, Banjo-Pilot was being developed as "Diddy Kong Pilot", a sequel to Diddy Kong Racing. After the acquisition, the game was changed to feature Banjo-Kazooie characters instead as Nintendo still owned the rights to Donkey Kong characters.
