That's right, I forgot how long it took them to upload Joker's page (or even show his render). Hopefully it won't be too long. Do we know Banjo's background character color? Seeing Hero Sandwich with purple was interesting.

And they better not pull a Kingdom Hearts with this season release target. One KH game was announced for a Summer release. The actual day? September 9th. Yes, it IS still summer at that point technically, but that was a troll move.

Don't release Banjo on the Fall day of December 16th.
Doubt it would be that late. I predict a late August, maybe early September for Banjo & Kazooie.

Anyone else not the type to get super hyped up and jump around? My reactions to stuff like this is mostly awe and disbelief. Honestly, I still don't believe it. It all feels like a troll, even though it truly isn't. I guess 20 years of disappointment makes you hard to accept things when they do happen.

As for that Amazon Germany Banjo title, I think it's pretty obviously a mistake due to language differences and mistaking the Smash reveal for a new game. Then again, as I've just said, I'm pretty much a hardened cynic lol. :)

Coming from the Erdrick thread, I'm a bit late but congratulations on getting BK! I found the interpretation of the pair amusing as it reminds me of old manga series like Kochikame, which I'm quite a fan. I really hope the character is fun to play as well since I already got the fighter pass!

And seriously don't take it to the fans of other character which might seem disconfirmed right now, keep celebrating and enjoying ;)

I really love just how happy and jovial Banjo looks in his gameplay. It's almost as if the character is a living entity, trying so hard to have joined the ranks of the best characters that video games have seen, only to fail over and over.

Now that he finally succeeded, he can't wipe that smile off his face!
I always had a headcanon that they got their invite years ago, they just keep getting lost. This is how they ended up in Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing. They just now made it.

The Smash site is still having issues for me. It won't load Banjo's page.

Now people can officially discuss what their Classic mode will be.
I doubt they're going to reveal Banjo's page in full until after Hero's release. That said, because his page is listed as "false", I guess his series icon is tied to his page's existence, and the Spiral Mountain remix on the site has no icon next to it as a result. Just a small annoyance to me.

The remix has an icon next to it for me. Try clearing your broswer's cache.

I can't help but wonder if anything from Nuts & Bolts will be referenced. I mean, we didn't see any of their grabs, sooo...

But I did pick up on one thing: In the shot with B-K fighting Falco and Pirahna Plant on Spiral Mountain, Banjo stretches upwards momentarily. This was an idle animation from N&B.
i am starting to doubt any references to Nuts & Bolts will be added, but i like to be wrong though. i still want a .L.O.G. spirit battle.

What a day! My emotions are still all over the place. I am so happy and I can't stop smiling ear to ear. My mind is still trying to grasp on what happened today. I literally can't believe it. Banjo & Kazooie are finally back and they look better than ever. I was really surprised to see their trailer as another variation of K. Rool's trailer and that K. Rool was actually sleeping in DK's house. Sakurai definitely knew of the comparisons between Banjo & Kazooie and the Duck Hunt Duo and that was done perfectly. Then as soon as they dropped down from the sky I jumped for joy. They actually did it. The moment I have been dreaming of since I was a child couldn't have been any better than that. Seeing DK, Diddy, and K. Rool joyful in the presence of them was definitely the most wholesome moment ever. I was hoping to see Diddy in B&K's trailer and they exceeded my expectations.

Now onto their moveset. Their moveset so far looks amazing! So many moves from their arsenal including the eggs, shock jump pad, wonderwing, breegull bash, it really is perfect. Their design, their expressions, and the fact they look so happy on the battlefield makes me so giddy! Spiral Mountain looks amazing in 3D and I can't wait to start taking screenshots when I get the pack. Gruntilda, Bottles, Mumbo, and the Jinjos! This is all I could ask for! I cried tears of joy afterwards. This moment is my childhood dream come true. Sakurai couldn't have done it any better. Thank you Masahiro Sakurai. Thank you Phil Spencer. Thank you Microsoft. Thank you Steve Mayles. Thank you Grant Kirkhope. Thank you Rare. Thank you Nintendo. I thank you all for coming together to help bring back Banjo & Kazooie to the home they belong to.

We did it guys. K. Rool, Ridley, and now Banjo & Kazooie. This game really is ULTIMATE. I can't wait to main them already. I love you all. We made it through the ups and downs of this decades long journey together. A new era begins. Banjo & Kazooie are here to stay.

Welcome home Banjo & Kazooie. We have missed you so much.

That would leave 4&5 for January and February, that's ridiculous considering we've seen gameplay, so don't worry.

I'm probably just seeing things, and it's not good to read too deeply into pictures that are blurry, but I can't dismiss this since Simon Belmont trailer revealed a new vacuum for Luigi before Luigi's Mansion 3. What is that some kind of cave off in the distance, You definitely couldn't even see that far out in the original N64 games.

I feel like i

Other than the thread owner, I can't think of a more perfect choice.
Not my place. A few folks who have wanted Banjo for about as long as I wanted K. Rool are handling the writing I believe.

I actually have never played a Banjo game and really want to without having to resort to non-traditional means. Hence me hoping for a Rare Replay port to the Switch. My hype for him is similar to my hype for Ridley a year ago, in that I feel for how much this means to his fans without having a personal connection myself.

"You guys wanted Banjo from Donkey Kong Country Returns, right?"
That's a Ukelele. It would've worked if we were asking for Banjo & Kazooie's successors, though.

If MKLeo plays him it's possible Banjo can win Evo...
That'll have to wait till next year, unfortunately, if they're being released in fall. I'm predicting October sometime.

So, everything is looking pretty good for now. I wouldn't put much stock into that German Amazon listing, though. It was likely a mistake of some kind. In any case, I won't be waiting for any Rare Replay to replay Kazooie and Tooie, and I might even have to track down Grunty's Revenge this time around.

So, what I'm most interested in speculating about is what songs we're going to get. The interview with Grant confirmed that we'd only be getting Spiral Mountain from him, but implied that there would be other remixes. Personally, I'm expecting Gruntilda's Lair and then maybe the final battle or an iconic level theme such as Freezeezy Peak for remixes. Aside from that I'd hope for and expect Mad Monster Mansion, Click Clock Wood, Mayahem Temple, a Hailfire Peaks medley, and maybe Hag 1 for straight song ports. I'd expect the same amount of songs as what Persona got.

I just discovered the backpack has the Rare insignia on it.
REALLY hoping that if they show up in any future games or change company hands, that they keep the insignia as a reminder of their legacy.

I didn't see the rare logo in the trailer at all. Am I missing something?

I also didn't catch Mumbo in the trailer but I've seen a screenshot with him in it. Did Nintendo put these on twitter or something?

For a moment I thought it could be the way to Jinjo Village, but then I realized the location doesn't match up with Banjo-Tooie and there's no hint of a village anywhere around there.

My second guess: It's where Banjo's parents stay the whole time, and probably where his sister Tooty has been too.

I really think we’ve just seen the beginning of Banjo’s full on revival, guys.

This whole situation reminds me of Battletoads. The Battletoads has a ton of random hints from Microsoft a couple years ago. This lead to them appearing in Shovel Knight & Killer Instinct. Now we have their new game.

Banjo’s had a weird prominent presence in the marketing for Xbone backwards compatibility & GamePass. There’s also all of this recent merch that doesn’t use his new design. & now he’s finally in Smash, to thunderous applause!

I think we’ll be seeing a new Banjo game in the coming years!!!
