Monster Hunter has a boss but no rep
I know that... I'm not saying Ender Dragon would mean Steve. Any MS character would fight him... in a way I'm saying it would gain more credence to a MS character coming because what character already in Smash makes sense fighting Ender Dragon. I also have yet to see Rathalos at the end of anyone's classic mode. I think I've seen most of the bosses by now.

That's not really the question at hand. What SuperiorYoshi means is in what scenario would you fight Ender Dragon?
Duck Hunt's
final boss in Classic mode is Rathalos, and at this point every Classic mode has been played as every character, and Ender Dragon isn't one of the bosses. Who would play against Ender Dragon if he was a Day 1 Patch?

Now, what could happen is some new mode where you vs. bosses or extra battles or something.

Honestly, I think that the Day 1 Patch might have something other than just an update for bugs / replay additions, but I don't think we're getting any substantial content. I sure would love to be wrong though!

From what I've heard: update patch may have some of the remaining missing modes?

Thanks you worded my question better than I did ha ha, that's what I meant!


Maybe there will be more content but it's locked in preparation for a future patch, they did that with Smash Wii U and 3DS hence all the data mine spoilers. Those Rare games in the code and a possible locked MC boss could be building towards something!

Getting online claiming to be a leaker and then calling people’s arguments high school level drama seems pretty condescending to me
I'm not calling anyone's arguments high school level drama. What is high school level drama is people screenshotting full PM's and spreading them around, and trying to leak my personal information.

While I do think people are being unnecessarily aggressive towards you, you sort of had to see this coming. People can be pretty ruthless to leakers, especially ones that aren't as direct as people would like. I get that you have your reasons for not sharing more, but it's not something that sits well with people.

Seeing a MS character that isn't Steve like Banjo Kazooie, Master Chief, Battletoads or Fulgore fight the Ender Dragon would be pretty funny tbh. If we see Enderdragon but no Steve shortly before or after, then I think Steve wont be in at all, like how I think we would've seen Monster Hunter join along the Rathalos reveal. Which means better possibility for Banjo and Kazooie, but I don't want to get anyone's hopes up :laugh:

It doesn't help that a huge pile of people go around posting fake leaks for e-peen, so you don't know who's wrong and who's right.

At that point, you might as well just ignore everyone and wait for something to happen.

Well, people care more about Minecraft's setting than anything. At the library job I work at, some unofficial Minecraft spin-off book series aren't even about Steve at all, like this one:

Also, Luigi fights Dracula at the end of his Classic Mode, so characters squaring off against bosses from their home series doesn't seem to be a hard and fast rule.

Yeah people who post fake leaks are bland. Like if I came up and decided to say “oh Bottles is in Smash” complete with fake image then that’s not leaking, that’s faking.

Ok I'm sure someone has already mentioned this, but galaxy brain theory time

Banjo's 20th anniversary is on the night of the game awards, Phil Spencer went to lunch with Nintendo at E3, and Rareware is in the credits.
Might not be a good time to get hopes all the way up, but this might be something to really consider.

Banjo's 20th anniversary was in June....

True, but for the Western release, anyway. What he meant was relating to the 20th anniversary of Banjo-Kazooie's Japanese release, which was published on December 6th, 1998.
Would be nice if that turns out to be the case, otherwise it'll be the biggest missed opportunity.

Game Awards actually makes the most sense for the announcement because it's the only place where both Nintendo and Microsoft (and Rare) are all in attendance for the same event/show, where they all make their own reveals. Otherwise, Nintendo would have to join a Microsoft stage or vice-versa. Here, it'd all naturally fall into place. Not that it has to happen here and in this way, but it would be a timely way to do it.

And X018 was a **** show outside of the multiplatform games they covered, so I would be fine with this.

I'm not sure a Japanese release date would be a point of interest for a western video game show personally. I feel like they won't ever announce something JUST because of an anniversary with Banjo now that his official 20th has passed. Unless it's a 25th thing or something, and if that's how long we have to wait I'm dreading the next 5 years!

I think the Game Awards makes sense even with the anniversary stuff aside. Everyone will be present (Nintendo, Microsoft, Rare), its a western event and Banjo is more-so a character wanted by the western audience (although he’s also pretty popular in Japan). What better place to make that announcement? It would be like when they announced Ridley at E3, which is also a western event and Ridley is also more-so of a western wanted character.

Not too mention it would be a huge surprise to help push the fighters pass for Smash. Microsoft has money to gain with the DLC as does Nintendo so I'd imagine the main reason to do it would be to announce something big while "the world watches" sort of thing. Not to mention the Game Awards has that franchise that deserves to come back catagory. Which is weird that it pops up now and of course the Bear and Bird are on it. I don't think it would have as much to do with a Banjo anniversary as it would with it being a stage with all attention on whatever they announce. Could also be alongside a tease for a future Banjo project.

I must be blind or dumb as hell but I can't find this category of VGA about "franchise that has to come back" or whatever it's called. Can anyone screenshot it or link it? if it's confirmed for this year's VGA i mean

Yeah, I can’t imagine them waiting months and months before finally revealing anyone from the Fighter Pass. Makes sense for them to make the first reveal sooner than later instead of keeping it a secret forever

I think there's a bit of misunderstanding with this one. The "Most wanted series reboot" or whatever category is part of the Gamer's Choice Awards that was posted a bit ago. This is *not* the same as The Game Awards.

The circumstances around the VGAs and the reasons why its the perfect place to make a third party announcement, especially a western one does make complete sense, however I just expect a Prime 4 trailer and thats about it from Nintendo.

I'm not gonna hold my breath, just because it feels like there might not even be anything to show its so early in the DLC dev cycle, unless theyve agreed and planned something like Banjo around mid-year this year, probably around E3 time or October. Also it was pretty recent since the last Smash announcement I think they're using Piranha Plant to tide people over until at least February to make the first announcement.

But who knows, I'll watch the VGAs because its a trainwreck of cringe, but man it'd be a great place to announce Banjo.

Doubly this for TGA leaks that I've been seeing around lately. The actual event is two days away, it's much easier to just wait and see what happens instead of stressing over whether or not insiders are legit about what's going to happen. If something happens, it happens. If it doesn't, it doesn't. Knowing two days early isn't going to change anything.

I started thinking up some ideas for Classic Mode after seeing some gameplay and understanding how it works. What if Banjo-Kazooie’s Classic Mode involved them going through characters and stages from their Nintendo 64 games?

EDIT: Forgot the title: “Change the System!”

Stage 1: :ultmario:, :ultpeach: & :ultbowser: on Princess Peach’s Castle

Stage 2: :ultfox:, :ultfalco: & :ultwolf: on Venom

Stage 3: :ultyoshi: on Yoshi’s Story

Stage 4: :ultfalcon: on Big Blue

Stage 5: :ultpikachu:, :ultmewtwo: & :ultpokemontrainer: on Pokémon Stadium

Stage 6: :ultyounglink: on Great Bay

:ultganondorf: and Beast Ganon

This is pretty good, but there should definitely be some Donkey Kong in there somewhere. Maybe ditch young Link since Ganon already represents Ocarina of Time, and we have Banjo face off against Diddy Kong, as a nod to Banjo's debut in Diddy Kong Racing?

I was having Young Link representing Majora’s Mask, though maybe having :ultdk:, :ultdiddy: and :ultkrool: on Jungle Japes representing DK64? What stage would Banjo face Diddy on for DKR? I’m assuming Figure-8 Circuit?

What about going through the stages of Banjo & Kazooie's own game? It could be called "Rescue Tooty":

Stage 1: (Spiral Mountain) Small Donkey Kong (as Bottles I guess) on Spiral Mountain, assuming this is their stage. Or else on Gaur Plain.

Stage 2: (Treasure Trove Cove) Sonic (he looks most like Snacker?) on Tortimer Island or Great Bay.

Stage 3: (Bubblegloop Swamp) Squirtle (Tiptup), Greninja (Flibbits), K. Rool (Mr. Vile) on Balloon Fight.

Stage 4: (Gobi's Valley) Snake (just for his name) on Mushroomy Kingdom or Gerudo Valley.

Stage 5: (Mad Monster Mansion) white Kirby (he can pass as a ghost) on Luigi's Mansion.

Stage 6: (Click Clock Wood) Pikachu, Pichu and Pacman (their colors are most like the bees') on Yoshi's Island.

Boss: (Final Battle, duh) Big Bayonetta. ...Or Gruntilda. (pls Sakurai) on Streetpass Quest.


I'm sure I missed some obvious better ideas.
