This means you can expect the same level of audiovisual gloss applied to Banjo-Kazooie in 2008 – and Tooie was already several steps above Kazooie on the technological ladder even back in the day with its interactive soundtrack, overhauled camera system and ramped-up textures and lighting effects.

“The original Tooie dev team have also been involved and suggested some updates of their own, mainly UI tweaks that they felt were right to introduce given the benefit of hindsight. The framerate has been given a boost, the addition of Leaderboards and Achievements goes without saying, and extra Stop ‘n’ Swop connectivity is also promised for the XBLA version to soothe the anxieties of those still haunted by the mystery eight-and-a-half years on.”

Banjo-Tooie will be available everywhere for 1,200MSP.
