‘Banjo-Kazooie’ Coming to ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’.
The characters from Rare’s classic platforming series “Banjo-Kazooie” are coming to “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” later this year, Nintendo announced during its E3 2019 Direct on Tuesday. For the uninitiated, Banjo is a bear and Kazooie is a big red bird. While Banjo first appeared in “Diddy Kong Racing” on the Nintendo 64 in 1997, he got his first solo title — and his feathery sidekick — a year later on the same platform. The first “Banjo-Kazooie” was a critical and commercial success, and it spawned a number of sequels up until 2008.
