Preceding this year's E3, much like every year, there were a myriad of rumors and leaks that flooded the Internet. Some of them pertained to any characters that might be coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as DLC. Nintendo kicked off their Direct presentation with the reveal of the hero from Dragon Quest, who is coming to the popular brawler. However, they later revealed , and confirmed, that Banjo-Kazooie is back, and they are being added as the third DLC character for the Ultimate roster.
Naturally, this has delighted fans everywhere. That is, of course, if they had recovered from an Animal Crossing sighting. The excitement led many to take to social media to share that joy with other fans who are experiencing the same thing. Here's what fans have been saying about Banjo-Kazooie coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
BOTH THE DQ HEROES AND BANJO
