GameSpy writes: "Rare's Banjo-Kazooie franchise has a devoted following, and is beloved by those who enjoy well-crafted traditional console platformers. We recently had the chance to play Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts at a special event at Microsoft headquarters. The Nuts & Bolts game world is figuratively structured like a wheel, with a central hub world, with outlying spokes leading to stages that are reached via unlockable entrances. The different explorable realms will have different themes, and one that we were able to play was a homage to Banjo's previous adventures.
Each realm will provide a series of different vehicle-driven challenges (in this stage we had four different missions to complete) With each attempt you're rated based on your performance. Doing poorly will just provide you with some currency, while doing very well will not only chalk that mission up as complete, but also unlock a competitive time-trial version of that challenge."
+Vehicle creation system is like an interactive LEGO set that fosters creativity
-Aside from tooling with the vehicle system, we haven't seen much of the game
