Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Banjo-Kazooie is finally back with Nintendo again as a new DLC character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Steve Mayles, who created the N64 duo, spoke about what it was like to learn about the reveal in an interview with YouTube channel Shesez.

Mayles said:

Nintendo has announced the latest Smash Bros. Ultimate Spirit Board event. This week, the theme is “Talk to the Cape!” in which characters donning capes will be appearing. Players who defeat them will receive more gold than usual.

The latest Smash Bros. Ultimate Spirit Board event should kick off on Friday. Like past events, look for it to last a few days.


Hello my beautiful Banjos and Kazooies! This week is post E3, and we have so much to talk about, it’s not even fair to our monthly data cap! Oni talks first-hand experiences on the Show Floor and discusses the entirety of the Nintendo E3 Direct and then some with Galen!

Part way through the episode, Galen suddenly had a swig of idiot juice and started being wrong about everything, but Oni keeps him on track as he recalls Eiji Aonuma’s old plans for new gameplay in Breath of the Wild. The gang may have figured out how the sequel is gonna go! Or at least they’d like to think they have… Check below the break for the full details!

To celebrate E3, we’re doing double content all month long! Mostly. We hope you’re enjoying! The best way to support our show is to recommend the podcast to others, and rate us 5 stars on iTunes! We really appreciate all the support you’ve given us throughout the show.

Thank you so much for listening!

Nintendo has come out with two new “My Way” commercials for Switch. View adverts for Super Mario Maker 2 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate below.

We have another look at Banjo-Kazooie in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate straight from Nintendo. This time around, we get to see one of the character’s alternate colors. Check out the screenshot above.


Following up on the Link’s Awakening hype from yesterday’s Direct, a new Spirit Board event titled “Let’s go to that island again!” will go live in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate this upcoming weekend.

This event will actually run for five days this time, and will include Spirits that are themed around Link’s Awakening — including the new model for Link as well.


Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is going all out for Banjo-Kazooi’s appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Original Grant Kirkhope is on board, and is even contributing new music for the DLC.

In an interview with VGC, Kirkhope explained how he got involved. Here’s what he shared with the site:

As was promised for today’s Nintendo Direct, the next DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has been revealed. The Hero from Dragon Quest XI will be added to the game. Additionally, you’ll be able to play as other heroes from the Dragon Quest series. A release is planned for this summer.

Nintendo will announce the next DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in its E3 Nintendo Direct, the company has confirmed. Director Masahiro Sakurai shared the news at the end of today’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate World Championship 2019 3v3 tournament. Some were hoping that a reveal would take place during the actual tournament, but we’ll have to wait just a few more days.

The E3 2019 Nintendo Direct will air at 9 AM PT / 12 PM ET / 5 PM in the UK / 6 PM in Europe on June 11.

E3 2019 technically starts today with a trio of Nintendo tournaments. The Super Mario Maker 2 Invitational 2019, Splatoon 2 World Championship 2019, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate World Championship 2019 3v3 will all be taking place over the next several hours.

Super Mario Maker 2 gets things started at 11 AM PT / 2 PM ET / 7 PM in the UK / 8 PM in Europe. The other two tournaments will follow right after.

We’ve included a live stream below where you’ll be able to watch all three tournaments.
