Super Smash Bros Ultimate is one of the most ambitious crossover games ever, collecting close to 80 characters together as playable fighters, with plenty more Nintendo franchises represented as stages, assist trophies or spirits.
And yet, we’re still not satisfied.
We know there are a total of six DLC fighters coming, and we also know who four of them are. Piranha Plant and Persona’s Joker are already in the game, with the Hero of Dragon Quest coming next, followed quickly by Banjo & Kazooie.
Banjo-Kazooie have slightly overshadowed Dragon Quest’s Hero, who brings a small but mighty following, even if they aren’t too different from the other sword fighters already in the game.
Banjo-Kazooie themselves though have been heavily requested for a while, despite not featuring in a game since Nuts & Bolts 11 years ago. With them in, it feels like the door just swung a little bit wider for some of the unlikely requests to actually be fulfilled.
Prior to the release of the game, the likes of Cloud and Ridley were seen as pipe dreams, while no one saw Wii Fit Trainer coming. It feels like, at this stage, nobody is fully off the table.
