Microsoft plans to release Rare's Nintendo 64 platformer Banjo-Kazooie for Xbox Live Arcade on 26th November. The price: 1200 MS Points (GBP 10.20 / EUR 14.40).

Remember, pre-orders of Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts (released on 14th November) will be given a free download code for the N64 remake - a whole two weeks before general consumption.

This should be useful for those bursting with excitement about using the Stop N' Swop feature. This rewards accomplishments in the Live Arcade game by unlocking features and content in Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts.

Microsoft and Rare also plan to release Banjo-Tooie on Live Arcade early next year.
