Previously, Nintendo announced that Banjo and Kazooie were finally heading to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. And just like every other fighter, it looks like the bird-and-bear duo will have some interesting alternate color costumes.
Recently, Nintendo revealed one of those palette swaps to fans – which features Banjo having pink fur!
