I have got fantastic news to share with you, fellow Banjo-Kazooie die-hards -- the Xbox LIVE Arcade port of Banjo-Tooie was given a rough release date of April by Rare earlier this morning.

My experience with the XBLA version of Banjo-Kazooie was nothing short of terrific thanks to its silky smooth frame rate and high-def presentation, and I expect the same treatment for Tooie.

Best of all, Rare says that "the original plan for Stop 'n' Swop" has been implemented in Banjo-Tooie. Fans have been waiting to hear that sentence for far too long, and I cannot wait to see what's in store for us.

Even though I own a physical copy of Banjo-Tooie, I'll certainly be getting it again on LIVE Arcade. Anyone else here thinking about double-dipping?

[Editor's note: Community member Necros has a pretty in-depth look at what Stop 'n' Swop was original intended to be, in case you need help getting up to speed.]
