Rare fixes Banjo XBLA glitches

Patch rectifies missing Notes glitch, but you'll have to start again

The N64 classic, Banjo-Kazooie, finally hit XBLA today, along with a new patch that fixes problems with the version release to a lucky few early.


The patch fixes some graphical issues, and a glitch that made some of the game's Notes disappear, essentially rendering the game impossible to complete (for the most hardened of completists). Unfortunately, you'll have to start the game over to bring the fix into effect.

Here's the official list of fixes:

  • The update addresses issues experienced by people playing in the 1080i and 1080p. Players will be able to enjoy the game in uncompromised 1080 loveliness.
  • It also addresses the Bottles Secret Puzzle glitch for all players starting the game afresh.
  • Finally, it also sorts out the one or two instances of strange leaderboard entries but as part of that, two of the leaderboards will need to be reset to make everything fair and square again...
