Nintendo showed off more of the upcoming Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom this week, and the new footage contained a segment which has reminded a lot of people about an Xbox 360 game from 2008.

During the new trailer, Link is shown driving and flying on a pair of ramshackle vehicles, which brings to mind the equally chaotic creations seen in Rare's Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, a 3D platforming adventure with a strong emphasis on creating your own craft.

The player is expected to dream up a selection of bespoke cars, boats, and aeroplanes in order to compete in various challenges.

Rare's Twitter account posted the following tweet yesterday, and it certainly brought a smile to our faces:

The tweet also alludes to the rather lukewarm critical reception Nuts & Bolts got upon release. While the vehicle creation was widely praised, some fans were disappointed that it wasn't a 'proper' 3D platformer, like the previous two titles on the N64. Nuts & Bolts had only sold 140,000 copies in the United States by the end of 2008, and as of 2023, it's the last game in the series.

You can watch the trailer for Zelda: TotK below.
