The original Banjo-Kazooie
is available for download over Xbox Live right now, complete with an update to resolve issues experienced by those who got it early.
Here, in the words of Rare, is what the update in question deals with:
"The update addresses issues experienced by people playing in the 1080i and 1080p. Players will be able to enjoy the game in uncompromised 1080 loveliness.
"It also addresses the Bottles Secret Puzzle glitch for all players starting the game afresh.
"Finally, it also sorts out the one or two instances of strange leaderboard entries but as part of that, two of the leaderboards will need to be reset to make everything fair and square again..."
If you're one of the lucky few who got Banjo-Kazooie early
thanks to pre-ordering Nuts & Bolts
(the recently-released next-gen outing of the series), you can find out how to keep your best times on the Bubblegloop Swamp and Game Totals leaderboards over on Banjo-Kazooie.com
classic was originally set for release on November 26th, but due to some issues with the pre-order incentive the release was pushed back to today to give pre-order customers some extra exclusive time.
If you're not one of those few, you can get Banjo-Kazooie
classic for 1,200 Microsoft Points.
