SUPER SMASH BROS.ULTIMATE The director Masahiro Sakurai has revealed that Banjo-Kazooie was the first character that followed Sora in the fighting ballot that took place many years ago. In recent weeks, Sakurai confirmed that Sora de Kingdom Hearts was the character that most fanatics wanted to see when the vote in question was carried out in 2015. And although the full results of this fan voting have never been disclosed Publicly, Sakurai has now confirmed that Banjo-Kazooie ended up in the second place of the general.
In a new conversation with the Japanese Publication Famitsu (translated by Pushdustin), Sakurai opened more about the process involved in carrying each DLC character to Super Smash Bros.ultimate since the launch of the game in 2018. In doing so, he mentioned the addition of banjo -Kazooie to smash ultimate, which happened in 2019. Sakurai said that the iconic duo of platforms followed Sora in the Fighter Ballot, which clearly means that they ended up second. Sakurai did not have much more to say about the incorporation of banjo in this interview, but he noticed that the composer Grant Kirkhope was the first musician brought from outside to help create a clue to Super Smash Bros.ultimate.
Continue with Banjo & Kazooie.
Sakurai: In the Fighter s Ballot, Banjo & Kazooie followed Sora. His concept was two fighting like one. Wonderwing is a movement that is also exclusive to them, since it is the only movement that can be used up to 5 times. That is why he is very strong.

In general, this is a pretty impressive feat for Banjo-Kazooie given the number of fanatics who participated in Super Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot so many years ago. That Sora finishes in the first general position makes a lot of sense given how popular Kingdom Hearts is both in Japan and in the West. But for Banjo-Kazooie, which is largely a loved character in the western market, ending so high in the ballot only demonstrates how many fans are from the inactive series. As such, it would seem logical that those in Xbox would like to fulfill that persistent love by Banjo-Kazooie by announcing a new game in the franchise, but such movement has not yet materialized.
