Banjo Tooie Hitting XBLA in April, First Screenshots

The downloadable Xbox 360 release of Rare's Banjo Kazooie sequel Banjo Tooie will arrive sometime this April, the studio has revealed, along with the first screenshots.

Ported by 4J Studios, the Xbox Live Arcade rendition of the collection-centric Nintendo 64 platformer will pack enhanced graphics and a smoother framerate, along with Stop 'n' Swop support. Included but never utilized in the initial N64 releases, Stop 'n' Swop will allow players of Banjo Kazooie to bring items into Tooie for as-yet-unknown results.

No price yet for Tooie, though last year's downloadable release of Kazooie sold for $15.
