I still can't believe this has happened. It feels like a massive weight has fallen off my shoulders. No more would I have to worry about what leak is right or what rumor is real because this is what I've been waiting for. All of my obsession and worry had led up to this day. Through all the good and bad times you bros and sisters were here to keep me sane.

TAKE ME HOME, COUNTRY ROADS~
My, today was a field day for everyone hasn't it?

It's official. Banjo just broke the internet.

Not only do we get 4 Dragon Quest protagonists, but also Banjo finally makes his debut in Smash along with Kazooie of course! June 11th, 2019 will go down in history as a legendary moment in Smash Bros. history.

If anything, I just wanted to congratulate all the Banjo bros out there. After 20 years of waiting and the constant ridicule from naysayers, you guys got the last laugh. Victory must taste so good right now for both you and the DQ supporters. For me, the hype was so infectious that I couldn't help but smile and cheer on Banjo as I saw all the trailer and the reactions. I think the Banjo hype rivals the hype for Sonic when he was revealed back in Brawl. Not only that, but Banjo's inclusion opens up a lot of opportunities for more western characters and fan favorites to make way into Smash.

Also, it's ironic that the fake Grinch leak actually predicted Banjo's inclusion. Funny how that works. Also, Steve lost the battle against Banjo. Good. Now we can seel less of those Steveposting memes. They were always in bad taste anyway.

I have to admit that I've never played Banjo-Kazooie and I probably should at some point (back to emulating again!).

Again, congrats~!

Hey, remember all those Steveposters that sent me "Haha Boomer" memes when I poked fun at them on Twitter? Well, I made good on my threat of sending them all smug laughing gifs if Banjo got in. Only instead of Nelson Muntz, I sent them all anime girls. All twenty-eight of them. (Well, all the ones that didn't block me or hastily delete their tweets today.)

Behold!


And you know what? Some of them tweeted back to congratulate me on my character getting in! So we had some rapport and some of them are now my broski. I love a happy ending, don't you?

Just laugh at them because they don't even know what a boomer is. The vast majority of boomers have NO idea what B-K even is.
Also "Lol get mad" if they respond like douches.

Okay if Banjo is in smash does this pave way for the inevitable Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie remasters (and Banjo Threeie revival)?
Honestly, I havent finished the games because we are too piss poor and young to buy a console (I was literally born in 1998), I have played it at my friend's house so I get to experience it somehow. I would love to finish the game in Switch <:(

them: they aren't relevant
me :

I'm imagining the Rare reunion now in Smash.

Donkey Kong: Bestial gorilla noises
Diddy Kong: Animalistic chimp noises
King K. Rool: Guttural crocodile noises
Banjo: Guh-huh!
the original sound bits are my absolute favorite part! I hope they kept "GUH-oh!". maybe for their edge-lean perhaps?

I'd say one step at a time. Next step would probably be getting Rare Replay on Switch (and PC for that matter, wtf Microsoft?). If sales for Banjo (Smash Fighter Pass/DLC pack) and RR does well, as well as the merch that's now flooding from everywhere, I don't see why they couldn't eventually try Banjo-Threeie (again, assuming sales are high enough). Remasters seem very unlikely since Rare Replay came out not all that long ago (not even 4 years yet!) and did bump up the resolution of the originals (while also tweaking B-K slightly by making notes permanently collected instead of losing them all when you die [no clue on what they did to B-T]), and honestly, they look fine.

TBH I'm a bit surprised Rare Replay wasn't announced. With the floodgate of B-K merch coming out of nowhere, it seems so surreal that it's just for their Smash Ultimate inclusion.

Not sure if this has been discussed here yet but it looks like they are making Gruntilda into a game boss which is super exciting. Its the same thing with what happened with Simon Belmont where it looks like the same stage however under closer inspection their is only one character and a bridge that wasn't present on the original rotating stage.

It feels bizarre even to go on this thread now seeing it moved to the confirmed character section. :chuckle:

That would be awesome--though, I would be content if it ends up being a shot made for the trailer. That shift, though, did catch my attention.

Now that they are coming, let's discuss...Kirby's hat when he copies Banjo & Kazooie!
I think Kirby should definitely have Banjo's backpack.

Well I'll be damned.

My emotions during the Direct proceeded thusly,

The Hero is revealed? Neat! Oh the other heroes from past games are here too! ...awww man. I didn't realize just how badly I wanted Banjo & Kazooie until now. Oh man, the rest of this Direct, they're killing it! ...minutes left. One more Smash announcement? I mean, probably not Banjo at this point but- OH. A VILLAINS TRAILER?! Another bad guy? ... DK and the krew? We getting Dixie Kon—JIGGY!!! JIGGY JIGGY JIGGY IT'S THEM IT'S—

And the rest is history. I woke up this morning saying to myself, "Gonna prepare the Cloud shrugging gif." WELL NOT ANYMORE! Wow, Nintendo, Sakurai, Microsoft, Rare, Grant Kirkhope, Steve Mayles, so many people involved... Holy damn. I was prepared to be wrong? I didn't want to be wrong? And boy was I glad I was wrong about being wrong.

Welcome home, Banjo & Kazooie. You're gonna see some good bracket results from me when you two come out.

Tears have been shed. I can't believe it happened! The reveal trailer was so good, pity I didn't see it live because of work though. I absolutely love what Kirkhope did with the Spiral Mountain track, it's the perfect mix of new and nostalgiac. You could not have asked for a better piece to accompany the reveal! Also glad that any fears of realistic bear and bird noises were put to rest immediately.

Did anyone notice the different sound effects for Kazooie's eggs? It actually sounds really jarring to me, since the other noises are faithful. It doesn't bother me, (what could after finally getting BK??) but it would have been some added satisfaction hearing those familiar egg cracks.

I really hope that forward or neutral air is rat-a-tat rap AND has an additional effect of having BK hover in place (at least once without having to touch the ground again.) If so, it'll be his most spammed move just like in the OG games. At least, for me it was.

The universe at large in response to Banjo-Kazooie becoming playable in Smash:



Even the DK Krew celebrated the return of their long-lost brethren.

Also, put my name on that thank you list, please. This is one of the greatest gifts to gaming both Nintendo and Microsoft have given us, and they deserve to know our gratitude for making this dream a reality.
