It is very likely that we will be getting some Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC character news at E3 2019 within the next week. However, exactly who is on the way is still a mystery. Well, thanks to some interesting teases, including one from a ResetEra admin, rumors of Banjo-Kazooie being the game’s next DLC fighter have been circulating the past few days. Most of the teases have come from Exquisite Gaming, a merchandising company that likes to relese merchandise to coincide with new games, such as Sonic, Crash Bandicoot and Spyro. Another note-worthy bit of information came from Beanstalk. Beanstalk is a brand extension agency that will be at E3 to talk about video game licensing brands. The agency has represented Microsoft since 2016 through a subsidiary called Tinderbox. Banjo-Kazooie has been listed by a client of the company, along with other Microsoft IPs.
However, the biggest information of all is a tease from shinobi602, an administrator at ResetEra. Shinobi said in a post that it has “been a while since we saw Banjo in anything. Hope we’re in for a smashing good time”. Shinobi has had an accurate past of leaking details for various games. One teaser in particular, the March 2018 reveal of Smash Ultimate, used the same “smashing good time” phrase. Obviously, there is no official confirmation yet, but Banjo-Kazooie fans won’t have to wait long to find out if the rumors are true.
