Coming to XBLA

#1 Posted by DanCarmichael (220 posts) -

I might possibly be more excited about this than I am about nuts and bolts at the moment. Not to say that game doesn't look good, I'm glad they are mixing it up and trying something new, but this gives me an excuse to enjoy the original again.

Information this seems a little thin but i heard they where planning on updating the visuals slightly and also it would connect with Nuts and Bolts in some way. I.e things you unlock in Banjo - Kazooie will unlock content in Nuts and Bolts. Which is awesome.

I am totally more excited about this! The original banjo in hi-def? Well I'm assuming that they will do the same thing with Banjo that they did with the original Soul Calibur, but anyway, yeah I'm excited.

I've always wanted to play this game. Back when it was first released my friend raved about it. I never got a chance to actually play it. I assume it's going to be released near the release of Nuts and Bolts.

They said the holiday season so I presume that's the same time as N&B.

I'm buying this as soon as it's released.

There isn't a game I would be happier to re-buy.

I am pretty excited. I loved the original, but I don't have much of a memory of the game since it has been so long since I played it.

Can't wait!
And finally they are putting Stop N Swap to use

I really hope they do a number on the graphics :¤) that would be nice

Banjo with achievements? Match made in heaven.
Hopefully they eventually release the other Banjo from the N64 and Rare's other games

It's sounding awesome - 1080p visuals, achievements, leaderboards, and Stop N' Swop! This is one game I'll buy without even touching the trial version.

stop n swop ftw.

The weird thing for me is that I want the Banjo XBLA titles more than I want any other game right now.

#14 Posted by DanCarmichael (220 posts) -

I wonder what they will do for the achievements. Hopefully they will spread them out rewarding people who are willing to get ever last jiggy.

I really cannot wait for this game to come to XBLA. Hopefully when it sets XBLA records Rare will release Banjo Tooie later on with online multiplayer! (As I recall the original BK didn't have multiplayer..I could be wrong though.)

I was pretty excited to hear that it was coming to the Xbox 360.

I can't wait for this to come to the XBLA. I watched on G4 during E3 and they had a playable demo of the new Banjo, which looked nice. The player (from MS Game Studios) talked about the game in depth and said that the original Banjo will be out around the release of Nuts and Bolts, so I can't wait. I assume this will be a bigger sized XBLA game, in turn having a higher price (800 to 1,200 points; $10-12).


This game brings back so many memories, and makes me wish I had never sold my N64 a while back.

I can't wait. It's one of my all-time favorite games and I never even owned it. I'll definitely grab it as soon as it hits Xbox Live.

hope its 800 points and not 1200 or 1600

Agreed. I never liked the first two for some reason.. If it's cheap enough I'll give it another try.

I'm looking forward to this way more than Nuts and Bolts, actually. I don't think the latter looks any promising.

#22 Posted by Banjo (16 posts) -

Definitely buying this once it's released.

Better yet; Banjo-Kazooie in HD, Banjo-Kazooie with the Xbox 360 controller, and Banjo-Kazooie with ACHIEVEMENT POINTS! When is this coming out?!
#24 Posted by mjwickstrom1 (186 posts) -

It's coming to the XBLA around the release of Nuts and Bolts.

I think if they do up the graphics enough, I would be tempted to buy it for 20 bucks even!!

#27 Posted by KingBroly (1645 posts) -

Isn't Stop n' Swap with Nuts & Bolts and not Tooie?

#28 Posted by Jetforcesoldier (2 posts) -

I can't wait to get a 360 Banjo and Kazooie is probably the first thing I'm gonna get.

Banjo-Kazooie in high def with new achievements and updated graphics sounds like one of the greatest things ever. Can't wait. Is there any kind of release hinted at?
