I'll say one thing for Rare: the studio can make some sensational promotional material. Following the awesome Believa Piñata movies, here's a video of Banjo taking a stroll through Paris to promote Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, now available for the Xbox 360.
"Banjo himself, the real-life person that actually exists and about whom we’ve been making games, recently took a jaunt across the Channel Tunnel and we've recorded the excursion," claims Rare.
Absolutely ridiculous, but charming in every way. I have to love the rather subtle jab at "tradtional" Banjo-Kazooie gameplay, even though I never quite got to grips with the vehicular stuff myself.
