Microsoft today released -- and promptly pulled -- a press release via Gamerscore blog (original link
; via TeamXbox
) announcing that the Banjo-Kazooie
Nintendo 64 remake is coming "exclusively" (i.e. we're guessing no Virtual Console release) to Xbox Live Arcade on November 26 for 1200
($15). Additionally, Microsoft announced a Banjo-Tooie
remake is coming in early 2009.
Those who pre-order Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts
will get it about two weeks early
(the game launches just under two weeks prior on November 14). Achievements in Banjo-Kazooie
will unlock content in Nuts and Bolts
via the "Stop n Swop" mode.
We don't know why Microsoft pulled the press release, but we'll let you know when it's back up. Update:
It's back up
