Let’s play Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts on Xbox Series X

Let's try Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts on Xbox Series X

Today is a kind of throwback Thursday as we played the classic Xbox 360 game Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts.

If you are one of those gamers who had an Xbox 360 in 2008, you may remember the classic Rare game that was a giant on the Nintendo 64, and its previous release was in 2005 for Game Boy Advance. Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts was a title that originally came out on the Xbox 360 and had a re-release on the Xbox One. Now, we play it on the Xbox Series X.

A different take on Banjo

Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts was a title where this great game series treaded on new ground with a concept different from its platforming roots. Even though the game is now pushing 14 years old, the graphics still hold up surprisingly well on Xbox Series X. More importantly, the game has dynamic mechanics, interesting characters, and scenarios that seem more full of life than they really are.

Of course, we have elements like the pause screen, the long conversations that stop the dynamism that it presents us, and the modeling of some characters, that make us realize that we are playing a title from 2008. Likewise, in this 34-minute gameplay video that we bring you, every second transmits a great feeling of nostalgia for those players who have previously played the title.

Xbox retro compatibility

Also, something we can highlight is the versatility of the Xbox console ecosystem. Thanks to its extensive backward compatibility, we can relive moments as we have done with Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts. If you have never played a title in this series and you have an Xbox console, we fully recommend you to try them as part of Rare Replay.
