Recently, Nintendo finally revealed that Banjo-Kazooie would be making his way into Super Smash Bros Ultimate after many requests from fans.
After this announcement, Xbox boss Phil Spencer was interviewed by Kotaku where he explained the process of how Banjo & Kazooie ended up in Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
Check it out below:
“The ‘how’ is not actually that interesting,” Spencer told me when I asked him how adding Banjo-Kazooie to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate came about.
“Obviously we’re one of the biggest third-party publishers on Switch, so we have great relationships with their third-party team. And you’ve seen the ambition they’ve had with every character that’s ever been in Smashand even more. So it was just kind of part of the partnership relationship we have with them.”
“There wasn’t anything kind of CEO-to-CEO that had to happen,” he said. “People have asked me on social [media]—I’m sure you’ve seen that—over many years: ‘Would I welcome having Banjo in Smash?’ and I’ve always been open to that.”
