Banjo-Tooie coming to XBLA next year; Banjo-Kazooie dated

Banjo-Tooie coming to XBLA next year; Banjo-Kazooie dated photo



Banjo-Kazooie is one of the greatest platformers ever created, even surpassing masterpiece Super Mario 64 in my mind. Banjo-Tooie -- the game’s amazingly named sequel -- is also awesome, although it lacks a little of the original’s charm and flawless design. It's still fantastic, don't get me wrong ... I just get a little overwhelmed with the sheer amount of stuff to do and places to explore.

For fans of both these games, today brings some pretty fantastic news! Microsoft just announced that Banjo-Tooie will be headed to Xbox Live Arcade in early 2009. Previously announced XBLA release Banjo-Kazooie was also dated, officially hitting Microsoft’s download service on November 26, two weeks after 360 exclusive Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts leaps onto store shelves.

Both games will cost a hefty (but worth it!) 1200 points, but anyone that wants to take advantage of the Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts preorder bonus still can (by preordering Nuts & Bolts you will receive Banjo-Kazooie on XBLA for free!).

What do you think of this awesome news? Do you adore the Banjo-Kazooie games as much as I do? Will you be downloading these games when they are released? Do you wish everyone spoke gibberish like the characters in Banjo-Kazooie? And just because I am curious: what is your favorite Mumbo Jumbo transformation?
