Remember my bearthren, do not be disappointed if Banjo doesn’t show up today, it won’t affect his chances at all.

That said, it sucks I’ll be at work all day so I won’t catch the Direct til either during break or off at night, the rest of you enjoy it though!

Happy birthday BravadoMan_13 BravadoMan_13 ! People with September birthdays are always the coolest(tomorrow for me!)! I also have Kazooie and Tooie on N64 in relatively good condition. And both of them on Xbox 360.

And hopefully both of them soon on the N64 Mini...
Happy Birthday, good sir! Hopefully we'll see the bear and bird sooner rather than later ^^
Thank you guys! I truly appreciate it! I should wish Llort A. Ton Llort A. Ton a happy early birthday tomorrow! And I do agree with you too about September birthdays.
Do you have Tooie as well ?
Indeed I do.

Hyped for the direct ,but I'm also not expecting Banjo-Kazooie to be revealed here, I think everyone can agree that they would be more fitting for a final reveal or DLC in a Smash direct , but you never know anything can happen, though I'm looking forward to maybe some new game announcements and online info.

Not surprised too much by the character reveal, Animal Crossing is a big franchise but not really my cup of tea, though I will say Isabelle looks pretty adorable, Overall I was personally kind of underwhelmed by the direct, while I'm looking forward to Yoshi, Mario Party and Pokemon we already knew all that was coming, Luigi's Mansion 3 was a pleasant surprise and the best new announcement for me I will definitely be picking that up, was hoping for a Metroid Prime Trilogy remaster to be announced ,but maybe next year, Didn't care for anything else that they showed off.I still believe Banjo-Kazooie will be unvield in the final Smash direct or as DLC.

Very pleased with Isabelle! Always room for more cute cartoony characters in Smash! Plus, we got three big reveals on after the other with Ridley, King K. Rool, and Simon in the E3 and Smash directs so I wasn’t expecting anybody too big. I’m sure characters like Issac, Geno, and Banjo & Kazooie will be revealed closer to release!

No Banjo & Kazooie reveal but there's still hope for the future Smash Directs.

As for Isabelle I was expecting her eventually but not as her own character. I enjoy the AC games so I'm one of the people that aren't super tilted over her being in Smash. But with that bombshell of Square Enix and FF games coming to Switch I thought either Geno or a new Final Fantasy character was about to be revealed.

And I can't believe that I get to play Katamari and Final Fanatsy IX on the go! I was just listening to the FFIX OST this morning and suddenly this happens.

Yeah Isabelle is cool, but kinda feels like a less hype buffer character until the next Smash specific direct.

Amount of New Evidence for Banjo: 0
Amount of New Evidence against Banjo: 0

Unless you count Vergeben being right about Isabelle and his Minecraft claims as evidence. Honestly it's been a long month and for that to be the character I got kinda sucked the wind out of me, but oh well i get why she is there. Still holding out for Banjo until this game is done, even if it takes DLC.

Oof some of the people in the Isaac thread are very pessimistic at the moment.

Personally, I am happy. I’m not losing my mind, but this Direct was to be expected.
I wanted Smash news, I got Smash news—- what’s there to complain about? The past two times Smash has been talked about, it has been huge news. It certainly makes sense that Nintendo did not make this direct all about Smash, but did throw a bone.

I like Isabelle and I love Animal Crossing, so I am happy she is in even thought she is not one of my hype characters. I did anticipate her though.

This leaves room now for a more concentrated direct with more Smash news in the future.
I am partially excited now because I expect bigger things in the next direct.

Yeah, of course there was initial disappointment, with it being a very non-hype-inducing trailer for a character that was most likely leaked.

But as you all are saying, the good news is that leads more credence to Minecraft/Microsoft content. This gives Banjo even more of a chance (unless we straight up get Steve).

So october and november are left… Last year AC and Xenoblade chronicles had focused directs in those 2 months. If there is no other big game getting one this year, both months could potentially give us Smash news. It depends all in how many newcomers are left to be revealed…(and of course there's DLC after that)

New Leaf was my first and only Animal Crossing that I've played so far and I've been wanting a new game since then so I'm pretty excited for a new switch game. I also like Isabelle, cute as a button and will be hilarious to use against my friends.

On the topic of Banjo and Kazooie though I think that their chances are still high because of Vergeben being right for just about everything so far and Isabelle just increasing his credibility even more now.

I don't think there are that many newcomers left, and there's still a Pokemon.

IMO, Banjo won't come till DLC if he comes at all. But that's ok, DLC picks are usually huge third party characters.

I know anything can happen, but was anyone honestly really expecting a big character reveal ? I mean we just got King K. Rool last month, not surprised they went with a safe ,yet pretty adorable pick for a new character, I also don't think we will get a Smash direct in October, but without a doubt there will be one big final Smash direct in late November to send off the hype before launch, I honestly think there is likely 2 maybe 3 character reveals left for the base roster with a couple of echos, The final character reveal has gotta be a big, unexpected and impossible newcomer, So what better choice than Banjo-Kazooie to close out the roster, But I still think they will be DLC at the end.

I know what I said earlier in this very thread about not getting discouraged... but I'm feeling very discouraged. Not because it wasn't Banjo or anything, but because it really wasn't any of the front runners. I had a feeling Isabel would get in, but my money was on her being revealed as an Echo Fighter without her own trailer, shortly after a different character trailer that was a little more hype inducing...
K. Rool and Ridley's trailers were initially what made me feel like all the impossible things i've wanted in Smash were even remotely possible, but I feel like this trailer was a reminder that I should keep my expectations in check.
Don't get me wrong. I'll be happy with this game no matter who's left to reveal.
