Posted: 24.09.2008 16:59 by Jamie Davey Comments: 13
Microsoft announced today that Banjo-Kazooie, remake of the original Nintendo 64 game, is to be released on the Xbox Live Arcade on November 26th, 2008. The game will be priced at 1200 MS points and will contain graphical enhancements, along with achievements and gamerscore support.

For those of you that cannot wait until the 26th of November, Microsoft is planning to give consumers that pre-order the latest entry in the Banjo-Kazooie series, Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, a free code to download the original title for free, two weeks before its release on the XBLA.

The Banjo-Kazooie goodness doesn't end there either, with Microsoft announcing plans to release Banjo-Tooie on the XBLA in early 2009.

We would like to see how the graphics have been improved, so we have asked Microsoft for some screenshots. With a bit of luck, we should have some shots to show you soon.

What? It was one of the best games for the Nintendo 64, did you play it?

I did, and I'm so surprised about it coming to X360. This was an exclusive once, I own the first part for N64 (along with the original black console).

Look, i'm not trying to start a war against Scyth, he/she is entitled to their opinion. But i just find it funny that the first comment is a negative one, since everyone i know likes or loves this game. The scores, and fanbase, say it all: This game is simply a lot of fun to play.

Oh these games were awesome back in the day! The first one was a blast to play. The second one wasn't too bad either, but I didn't like some of the mini-games they had in there. The levels were better though. I wonder if they're gonna give this one a graphics overhaul like they did with GoldenEye?
