Nintendo announced that Banjo-Kazooie are finally coming to the Super Smash Bros. series.
This means that the iconic 3D platformer duo are finally back on a Nintendo platform. They will come to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Switch this fall.
The first Banjo-Kazooie was made by Rare and came out for Nintendo 64 in 1998. It had a sequel, Banjo-Tooie, in 2000. After that, Microsoft brought Rare and acquired the rights to the franchise.
But Nintendo and Microsoft have been playing nice lately, with Microsoft even letting Cuphead appear on the Switch.
