Banjo Kazooie Smash Ultimate

Even in spite of my own prediction, I never could’ve dreamed it was actually going to happen! Earlier today, Nintendo kicked off their Direct with The Heroes from the Dragon Quest series coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate this summer. With Fighters Pass challenger #2 on the way, we thought that was the end for Smash news, but boy were we wrong! The impossible Rare pair of Banjo and Kazooie are both coming to Smash Bros. Ultimate as Fighter #3 this fall!

The trailer picks up where King K. Rool’s reveal left off, which is fitting given Donkey Kong and Banjo-Kazooie‘s shared history with Rare. Perhaps, beyond Super Lucky Tale coming to the Switch, maybe this was why Microsoft wanted us to tune in to the Direct, eh?

How do you feel about the latest additions to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate‘s roster? Are you excited for the return of the iconic Nintendo 64 duo? Share your thoughts with us below.

Banjo fans, sing your hearts out.
