Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts caused quite a stir when it was first revealed. For years, fans of the platforming bear and bird duo waited for a true Banjo-Kazooie sequel, and when it was finally announced for the Xbox 360, people simply didn't know what to make of it.
Nuts & Bolts, as you should be well aware, is going to be centered around the use of vehicles which you build build and use to complete a variety of challenges. Although this was met with cries of outrage at first, BK fans have gotten used to the idea and it's looking like the game will be a very enjoyable outing when it finally ships in November.
Destructoid had the opportunity to catch up with Rare's Shaun Read, one of Nuts & Bolts' main designers. Second only to series creator Gregg Mayles in terms of design work, he was just the man to answer their questions.
