EUROPE ONLY: BANJO-KAZOOIE: NUTS & BOLTS PROPELS ITSELF INTO STORES THIS NOVEMBER

Rare’s much-loved dynamic duo is back in their most constructive adventure yet

Faster than a speeding hovercraft, more powerful than a dual engine jet-copter, and able to leap tall buildings in a single spring-loaded bound, “Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts” propels itself into stores across Europe on 14th November. Exclusive to the Xbox 360, this must-have title will be available for an estimated retail price of £44.99 / €69.99.

The latest instalment of Rare® Limited’s beloved franchise is finally here and everyone’s favourite bear and bird duo are back in action, revving up for a unique adventure of epic proportions. Battling against the evil witch Gruntilda Winkybunion and the mysterious Lord of Games (L.O.G. for short), the pair are caught in a madcap quest to save the idyllic Spiral Mountain.

Part game, part construction set, players must build vehicles from parts strewn across the game worlds in order to overcome the challenges set by L.O.G. and secure the future of their homeland. With more than 100 parts and virtually unlimited possible combinations, no two players will have the same experience in “Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts.” By exploring the vast game worlds, discovering hidden secrets and solving puzzles to win rewards, players continually find more and more ways to customise and improve their contraptions.

But don’t worry if you aren’t the world’s greatest inventor, or your efforts end up looking like a toddler’s doodles, “Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts” comes with a fully loaded experience, with pre-built vehicles included so that players can jump right in to the mayhem.

You can even play with your friends online with Xbox LIVE®, facing off head-to-head in multiple multiplayer modes or teaming up to conquer Grunty cooperatively. The title’s online blueprint sharing system even allows player to share their designs over Xbox LIVE with friends and gamers across the globe.

With “Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts,” Xbox 360 continues to build its impressive line-up of content that appeals to people of all ages and types, from the latest blockbuster releases to unique digital entertainment on Xbox LIVE.
