The Banjo Kazooie series, one of the finest game series ever made, recently saw a revival with Banjo & Kazooie appearing for the first time in eight years as playable characters in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/Nintendo 3DS .
Originally titled Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts , Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts was announced at E3 2006. Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts continued Banjo’s adventures but with a twist — players would have to compete in building their own vehicles instead of exploring the vast, free-roaming worlds that filled Banjo-Tooie .
Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts featured a heavy emphasis on vehicle construction, something Rare had never before explored in Banjo-Kazooie or Banjo-Tooie . Instead of exploring vast worlds for jigsaw pieces, Banjo would have to find individual components to build his vehicles. Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts gave Banjo the freedom to construct anything his heart desired. Vehicles could be customized with chassis, wheels, jet engines, wings, fuel tanks and more with everyone’s favorite bear given a plethora of pieces at his disposal. Banjo Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts also introduced a new multiplayer mode called Showdown Town.
