Banjo-Kazooie and The Hero?!?!?!?
I swear if we get these guys and not Sans...
This a joke right?
Banjo-Kazooie is bomb. That reveal was amazing. Nintendo just gave the people what they wanted.
Halfway. I never played it and it looks incredibly stupid, but if you grew up playing it then I guess its fair to be excited, but its just dumb IMO.
I do genuinely want Sans.
I mean, you got some strong opinions that's fine. And genuinely wanting Sans is fine. Undertale is a big name indie in the PC space, I get that. But Banjo-Kazooie has consistently been one of if not the most requested fighters for Smash. Even more, Banjo-Kazooie was one of the best selling Nintendo 64 games, and was basically "Mario 64 but better" when it came out. It is dressed up as a goofy, cutesy world, but the game has a lot of adult/inappropriate humor hidden in its dialogue and worlds (just look up Jolly Roger's Lagoon). It was a glimpse into the humor at home in Rare, that we wouldn't see come forth in earnest until they did Conker's Bad Fur Day, and at the time these were bold *** moves on a Nintendo console. It spawned a sequel that was excellent, and then later after Rare was bought by Microsoft, we got Nuts & Bolts on the 360. This game was kind of ahead of its time with the vehicle creation mechanic, something that nobody had really done as well as them at the time. Building games were not yet in vogue and wouldn't be for a few years.
I get that none of this will have the same impact on you looking back as it does on someone who lived through it. Just know that there's a lot of Banjo fans that have been waiting about a decade for this lol.
And I want Tom Hanks.
The problem is: these aren’t really associated with Nintendo at all, and many people would get angry over them.
Well being associated with Nintendo is no longer a prerequisite for Smash, not since they added Snake really. But while Undertale is a genuinely popular game, specifically in the PC space, it's got nothing on the legacy of Banjo-Kazooie.
Are you saying that Tom Hanks is a possibility?
I'm saying there's a chance!
Not surprised about all the downvotes, don't care though I told the truth.
The Hero was leaked some time ago iirc, but things were a lot less clear about banjo. There's two dlc fighters left, and I'm really pulling for Steve (Minecraft) and/or Master Chief.
Other than that though, the reveal was fantastic.
I don't mean this negatively, but I'd put Sans closer to niche/meme territory than actual icon with a chance to get in.
I'm doubting either of those would be in it but Master Chief would be cool I suppose, Steve from Minecraft would be terrible.
Sans is mostly a meme but he is a good character from a good game, though tbh Undyne or Papyrus makes more sense. I'd happily welcome any of them to the game but Sans is preferable to the others.
How exactly would Steve be terrible? He could make for a really quirky and interesting fighter. They figured out a move set for pac man and he’s one of the most interesting characters to watch and play, so I’m sure they could figure out a cool moveset for him.
The number of items and creatures in Minecraft would serve as a nice template for defining a moveset for Steve.
Yes but think about it, Minecraft in Smash...shudders
lol it would be kind of hysterical tbh. No doubt a lot of players would cringe but, Minecraft is dope.
Imagine if you could place blocks that became semi-permanent structures in the map.
