Full "L.O.G.'s Lost Challenges" details & more
First off, the trailer for the "L.O.G.'s Lost Challenges" downloadable content for Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts has been uploaded onto the Xbox Live Marketplace. It can also be viewed on computerandvideogames.com, where this press release has been posted:
"Polish up that toolkit and prepare to dive back into the vivid world of Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, where invigorating new challenges await with the Lord of Games' (L.O.G) Lost Challenges Game Add-On pack! Worried that Banjo and Kazooie may be falling back into their lazy ways, L.O.G has created a fresh series of tests and seven additional multiplayer modes for players to continue building their own distinctive vehicle creations. Although Spiral Mountain has been rightfully won, L.O.G. has an enticing reward for completing his new challenges: another version of Klungo's Arcade game.
Additionally, L.O.G.'s Lost Challenges will include the blueprints from seven lucky Xbox fans from the United States, Canada and Japan whose winning creations were selected by RARE from the recent Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts fan vehicle design contest. The winning contraptions can be unlocked by Banjo fans upon completion of the Stop 'N' Swop feature within Banjo-Tooie on Xbox Live Arcade later this spring. These incredible machines ranging from a beetle to a carousel and a robot prove that Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts is a game where the only limits to your adventure is your imagination.
L.O.G.'s Lost Challenges offers players the ability to earn up to 250 achievement points as they immerse themselves into 12 new challenges and 7 new multiplayer games. Releasing on April 7th, it will be available on Xbox Live Marketplace for 400 Microsoft points."
In addition, George Kelion has revealed that there will be free, limited edition gamerpics launching with the DLC.
These new gamerpics for Nuts & Bolts will be releasing on April 7th and will be available, for free, for one week:
And these gamerpics for Banjo-Tooie will be releasing April 10th and will be available, for free, until the 14th:
Heyyy, waitaminute...there's something verrry suspicious about a few of these! But unfortunately, Mr. Kelion refuses to divulge too much further about them. Hmmm....
Lastly, but certainly not least-ly, an "Easter-themed" trailer for Banjo-Tooie will be available from April 10th to April 14th, and Mr. Kelion adds, "Without wanting to send you on too much of an Easter Egg hunt, it comes to us on good authority that if you combine what fresh info you can glean from the Easter Banjo-Tooie Gamerpics with the contents of the Easter Banjo-Tooie trailer, you should be able to work out some pretty big clues to soon-to-be-revealed secrets."
Also releasing alongside the trailer and gamerpics will be a Banjo-Tooie "Splendid" theme, which will be available for 250 Microsoft Points.
There will also be, as ever, premium gamerpics and a premium Xbox Dashboard theme for Tooie.
