Latest screens and trailer for Banjo-Tooie XBLA excite

You know what today is, don’t you? An average, boring Wednesday. But exactly one week from now? Why that’s the day Banjo-Tooie comes out on Xbox LIVE Arcade, of course.

At 1200 Microsoft Points, I can understand how some of you might be hesitant to purchase the game, especially if you already own the N64 cartridge. Still, there are a couple of enticing reasons out there, like full support for Stop ‘N’ Swop, an improved draw distance, and a smoother frame rate.

Or, if you’re a competitive prick like I can be from time to time, there’s always the online leaderboards to look forward to. Rare has given us a few screenshots and a trailer for Banjo-Tooie, which should bring back both the happy and painful (see: Saucer of Peril) memories.
