So, we already knew that the Xbox LIVE Arcade version of Banjo-Tooie was coming this month, and that it would feature full “Stop ‘N’ Swop” support, but we didn’t know the exact date … and now we do. Mark your calendars for April 29, folks!
Let me take this opportunity to remind all potential buyers to start training your thumbs for the imminent Canary Mary-themed hell you are going to come up against. For any of you who are planning on running through Banjo-Tooie for the first time, I feel sorry for you, I really do.
But wait, there’s more! Rare also showed off the game’s Gamerpics to go along with this release date announcement, but they aren’t terribly exciting. At the very least, I’m glad they opted out of making a Canary Mary Gamerpic. That would’ve been cruel, plain and simple.
