In a bit of a different, random, and quite surprising news, Microsoft’s Phil Spencer let out a tweet saying he has no problem with Banjo-Kazooie being in the next Smash Bros. DLC.
@PedroDarkinson I think it would be cool if Banjo was in the next SSB DLC. We’ve worked with Nintendo on Rare IP before, no issues.

I’m not going to lie, this is actually pretty shocking to me. Then again, the Donkey Kong Country trilogy and the Donkey Kong Land trilogy are back on the Virtual Console and Donkey Kong 64 is on the way. I wonder if this is a sign of things to come? Either way, I know I wouldn’t mind playing as Banjo! Now if only we can get Rayman and Crash Bandicoot in Smash Bros. DLC!
