Banjo is in smash. let me repeat it for the people in the back. BANJO. IS. IN. SMASH. HOLY CRAP YOU GUYS. OKAY, DRAGON QUEST REP IS IN AS WE PREDICTED BUT IT'S AWESOME TO SEE THAT THEY PULL FROM DIFFERENT GAMES BUT
BANJO. IS A PLAYABLE FIGHTER IN SMASH ULTIMATE. I'm not sure if you can tell, you probably can't tell but I am hyperventilating right now. Even as I was working on this update, making the new template for Banjo and everything, throughout the whole process I STILL couldn't believe this was reality. It wasn't an easy task either. I don't know how many days or even WEEKS it'll take for the truth to finally set in that, I can finally play as Banjo in a smash game. A series that basically kickstarted my entire hobby as a gamer. Banjo Kazooie was like my 4th or 5th game but since then I wanted him in smash.
I am happy for dragon quest fans who got their dream fighter but, I think Banjo still trumps all of that. There are way more dragon quest fans that are Banjo fans then there are vice versa. I know that doesn't really make sense but it's from my heart so I know it's true. Banjo's in smash.
Also obviously goes unmentioned but I will release this version in tandem with the standard black and white versions, in case people prefer that.
