Rare's platform duo will be making their next-gen debut this November 14 with the release of Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, but the good news doesn't stop there.
Customers who have pre-ordered (at "participating retailers") the title will also receive a download code for Xbox Live Arcade to obtain the original Banjo Kazooie, released in June 1998 for the Nintendo 64, for the best price - free. And, the classic title for pre-orders will be available two weeks prior to its public release. Wait, so not only will you faithful platformer fanatics get the title for free, but early as well? That's more than enough to even make us jealous.
Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts will also feature the "Stop N' Swop" shop to unlock "extra content". The game, published by Microsoft, will be available for $39.99. Banjo Kazooie XBLA will be released sometime before November 14. Check out an exclusive hands-on demo after the cut.
