Rare has just given Banjo-Tooie a 29th April Xbox Live Arcade release date.

But there's still no word on cost, although 1200 MSP (GBP 10.20 / EUR 14.40) - the same as fellow retro-revamp Banjo-Kazooie - makes sense.

Developer 4J Studio is handling this port, and brings Banjo-Tooie back to life with a "super-charged framerate" and the Stop 'n' Swap feature, according to the Banjo blog.

We're told there are various updates and tweaks to the original N64 formula from 2000, too - plus a variety of Gamerpics to accompany the release.

Pop over to our Banjo-Kazooie XBLA review for an idea of what Banjo-Tooie will deliver.
