Microsoft has announced the release of a playable Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts demo, available now on Xbox LIVE Marketplace for Gold members.

In the demo you'll be able to give vehicle building a try and tackle some Jiggy challenges. We've been mightily impressed by what we've seen so far and highly recommend you give the demo a whirl. It's a smidgen over a gigabyte so get downloading now.

Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts is set for release across Europe on November 14.
