After some new details slipped yesterday, Microsoft has announced a release date for Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts for the Xbox 360. Well, kind of.
The game will be released this November. Combined with Gears of War 2, this make November a good looking month for the Xbox 360. The two games are different enough to attract two audiences.
Details from MS after the break.
"Microsoft Game Studios (MGS) will also pull back the curtain on another beloved franchise with the triumphant return of Banjo, one of Rare’s most successful characters, in “Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts.” Defying the laws of nature, a bear, a bird and a backpack team up to embark on another incredible adventure this November.
MGS is breaking the rules of traditional platformer games by putting the power to invent new abilities for Banjo directly into the players’ hands. By using their ingenuity to build imaginative vehicles that can be combined with infinite variations, gamers help Banjo successfully complete missions through multiple terrains.
Through exploration, discovering hidden secrets and solving puzzles to win rewards, players will continually find increasing ways to customize and improve their contraptions, creating an unprecedented level of user-generated content and emergent play for a 3-D adventure game."
