During the recent special Banjo-Kazooie presentation, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai explained how Microsoft was more than happy for their characters to join Nintendo’s brawler.
Sakurai himself was “extremely grateful” and also noted how Rare welcomed the idea with open arms.
With the duo now officially playable in Ultimate, some fans might be eager to relive their original outing from the Nintendo 64 era, and it just so happens that the original first Banjo-Kazooie is playable on Xbox One now.
Sakurai reiterated this by saying:
“I know this is a Nintendo broadcast, but please, give the game a try on Xbox.”
