With Phil Spencer still wanting them in, and Nintendo and Microsoft being buddies now, they have the biggest chance yet! IT'S GOING TO HAPPEN, I CAN FEEL IT! Sorry, got excited there.

Banjo and Kazooie would have made for an amazing fighter in Super Smash Bros.

This could happen. I seem to remember hearing that Nintendo got permission from both Rare and Microsoft to use Banjo-Kazooie in Super Smash Bros. 4 and even add in a battle stage based off of one of the Banjo-Kazooie Games!

Well Nintendo owns the original copy rights for these two. Microsoft only owns the darker colored versions from "Nuts 'n' Bolts". Each company owns a portion.
In other words, Nintendo could add them in without copyright infringement.

Except what you have said is completely false, Nintendo doesn't own anything about these two - Nintendo sold Rare and ALL the rights to Rare IPs (Donkey Kong wasn't a Rare IP) to Microsoft - which includes ALL of the rights to Banjo-Kazooie, Conker, Perfect Dark, Sabreman, Battletoads, etc.

Nintendo never had rights to Banjo-Kazooie, Rareware did - and Rare still does, under Microsoft now.

They can still technically get in, but Microsoft Game Studios and Rare have to both be mentioned in the credits - and Nintendo needs Microsoft's permission for any design of Banjo-Kazooie - old or new. Hence why Banjo-Kazooie and Conker were removed for the DS port of Diddy Kong Racing, Nintendo only had permission to use the side characters from DKR (Tiptup, that watch guy, Wizpig etc.) because Nintendo owned those characters.

They still have enough leverage though. Microsoft may be a big company but Nintendo is larger by far. It wouldn't take much for them to get those two. I've put in two votes. One for Bomberman and the other for these two. I may even put one in for Shantae. I love Nintendo 64 and GameCube games as well as all the handhelds. The games are getting easier though, especially Mario, and I don't like it. That's why I stick to retro.
I would like to challenge you to a match but the circle pad on my 3ds is almost falling off. I have to push it in constantly... It reminds me of SSB when the winner was the person with the best controller.

Of course, although Microsoft as a whole company is probably bigger but on just the Gaming side Nintendo is definitely bigger. Considering the Head of X-Box supports their inclusion there aren't too many legal and permission problems in the way. Really if there is enough demand it cold happen, assuming it doesn't get vetoed by Nintendo due to it being a move that would help their competition too.

I actually remember a few years ago at a sleepover, we were playing Brawl, and I decided to use the broken Gamecube controller to level the playing field as it was my copy of Brawl that I'd had for years (Thus I was more experienced), and still won like half the time. The control stick would occasionally bug out and always input left, and the a button was pressed in really far and I could barely press it - meaning I had to stick to Smash attacks and Specials. It wasn't an official controller, although one of my official controllers broke too - so a very kind friend of mine bought two replacements for me.

Couldn't help but notice this conversation, and it kind of piqued my interest a bit.

It might seem like a small, minutely trivial detail but...I started playing Banjo-Kazooie for the first time in over 13 or so years albeit the XBox 360 version via Rare Replay and couldn't help but notice something.  This screenshot: static.gamesradar.com/images/m… That image was taken from the Nintendo 64 version, but interestingly enough...the same scene can be found in the XBox 360 version of the game as well.  And it was even ported over into Rare Replay. 

Banjo is holding a Game Boy in his hands.  Not just some generic game system created by Rare for Banjo to hold, but the Game Boy.  Something that is an iconic part of Nintendo's legacy and culture.  Something that is created by Nintendo, and Nintendo themselves holds the rights to.  No doubt about it, it's Nintendo's trademarked and patented signature Game Boy in every way.  It makes me wonder how in the world a port of a game that made every attempt to scrub Nintendo's previous imagery associations off the surface of it (like here: www.mundorare.com/imgs/content… ) would just off and leave Nintendo's very own Game Boy in there.  If they could modify the xylophone, they surely could have at least made the Game Boy look a lot more generic in nature somehow to make it more like a generic handheld system.

It might not seem like a big deal, but if Nintendo's own Game Boy can still appear in there no matter how small its appearance...I can't help but wonder why then can't Banjo and Kazooie appear in Smash 4.

I think the write-washing was of mainly things that literally said Nintendo's name - so the Xylophone and the opening honky-tonk N logo. But as for the Game Boy, it may have been seen as just generic enough not to immediately shout Nintendo into people's faces - it doesn't have any Nintendo labelling even if it is obviously the Game Boy. In any case it is probably an oversight by the developer - due to not saying Nintendo on it - or not seen as enough of an indicator of Nintendo to be considered to be changed.

Also, Microsoft and Nintendo do not directly compete in the hand-held market, so Microsoft may have seen it as OK to allow a Nintendo hand-held to be displayed becasue there is no XBox hand-held for it to be a competitor to (Even if the handheld in question was already being retired when the original game came out a decade and a half ago - let alone when the port came along only a few years ago.)

That is possible, though as you said it is unmistakably the Game Boy itself. Nintendo has added cameos of its own systems in their own games like Pokémon courtesy of Game Freak but never had the logo itself visible on the front at least as far as I can recall.

Also, that second part of your statement certainly does intrigue me. I didn't think of it like that, even if I already knew a prime example was like letting Rare develop the DKR port for the DS. Although, I still think it only seems fitting to at least give some consideration to B-K being in Smash if we point back to that Gameboy cameo in the 360 port. Given Rare removed their signature characters from the DS port since Nintendo no longer owned them, they should have removed Nintendo's Game Boy from BK's 360 port as well.

I certainly understand that just by the GB's leftover inclusion alone probably isn't wholly solid proof to as why they should allow Banjo in Smash...but it is an interesting and curious topic to me nonetheless. I know Phil Spencer was okay with it...but even so, it'd probably be more up to Rare themselves and the rest of Microsoft...and Nintendo would probably be even more of a holdout given how strict they'd be with who could be included.

...But if we point again to your statement about Microsoft not competing in the handheld market...do you think it would be feasible to include Banjo and Kazooie in Smash but maybe only exclusive to the 3DS version? As we already know Nintendo seems to have no problem with making things exclusive given Mewtwo was originally planned as a Club Nintendo exclusive before being globally released instead and Nintendo sure does love North American retailer-exclusive amiibo.

Just a thought though. :0
