In the high days of the N64, a crazy duo was unleashed unto the gaming world - and now they've finally made their way back.
"It's not a racing game," developer Rare is keen to toot while vehicles have now become a primary focus.
Nuts & Bolts mixes in the old style platform you'd expect from the series but collecting pieces and building vehicles is the goal of the player. The story is set in Showdown Town, which is sixteen times larger than any previous world Rare have concocted before.
There will be a total of 1,600 pieces to collect including weaponry to be attached to the vehicles, now that's a lot of collecting to be done. Hovercrafts, monster truck, a glider... all are open to be put together across a total of six levels in the game.
Jiggy pieces return for some nostalgia as do the notes, which will be used as currency to buy blue-prints for new vehicles. Probably not something most fans expected but it's likely to peak interest among the gamers looking for a good platform throw-down with a twist. The game is due out this Christmas only on Xbox360.
