TeamXbox writes: "Not to bust anyone's chops or anything, but this might be the best result so far of Microsoft's purchase of developer Rare, Ltd. Since that deal went down back in 2002, the new games created by the English developer have been hit-or-miss. Mostly miss. What Microsoft was really hoping for were a slew of titles that carried the same cachet with gamers as previous efforts for Nintendo did. Games like Goldeneye and Banjo-Kazooie.
Well, now they finally have a game like that. In fact, it's that actual game. Set for release on the Xbox Live Arcade store, Banjo-Kazooie is a faithful remake of the original platformer that so many know and love for the N64. Now with achievements and a lack of a need to dig out the N64 from your Mom's garage. The original Banjo-Kazooie will be available to aged fans of the original as well as younger gamers who missed it the first time around."
