Xbox boss would like to see Banjo-Kazooie as Smash Bros. DLC


We’re crossing a lot of companies and properties here

Head of Xbox Phil Spencer likes to talk about games. However, that doesn’t mean that he restricts himself to only talking about titles that his company’s working on. No, he’ll discuss anything, even Nintendo properties.

When a fan asked on Twitter if he could help boost Banjo-Kazooie’s chances at being a new playable fighter, Spencer showed love for the character by saying “I think it would be cool if Banjo was in the next SSBDLC.” Spencer further opened the door to the possibility by adding “We’ve worked with Nintendo on Rare IP before, no issues.”

While Rare, Ltd. has a long history of creating titles for Nintendo systems, it’s now a subsidiary of Microsoft. But, if the consensus is that fans want Banjo-Kazooie in Super Smash Bros., the two publishing giants just might be able to make something work.
