With the Piranha Plant DLC now available and Joker from Persona 5 likely to come within the next few months, many fans wonder who is the next Smash Bros Ultimate DLC character? Many names have been brought up in leaks, such as Erdrick (Dragon Quest), Sylux (Metroid Prime), and the DOOM Marine. However, one of the most popular is Banjo & Kazooie. Will we get Banjo Kazooie in Smash Bros Ultimate?
Banjo Kazooie In Smash Bros Ultimate DLC Leak
The duo of Banjo and Kazooie has been brought up in many Smash Bros Ultimate leaks. However, many of these turned out to be false, such as the infamous Smash Bros Ultimate Grinch leak.
However, a Smash Bros DLC leak may renew hope for some fans. The leak mentions various possible inclusions, one of which is Banjo Kazooie.
While it could be another hoax, this leak has some credibility due to the fact it brought up Joker from Persona 5 before his announcement. This is an unlikely guess and, at best, the leaker may have some inside info.
All leaks should be taken with a grain of salt. Nonetheless, there are still many reasons Banjo and Kazooie could make their way into the game.
Banjo Kazooie In Smash Bros Ultimate DLC?
While they may not be in the game yet, various Smash Bros DLC polls and ballots have Banjo Kazooie very high. This shows there’s still a huge fan demand for the characters to make it into the game.
What’s more, Xbox vice president Phil Spencer also states that he would be happy to allow Banjo Kazooie in Smash Ultimate.

Even the creators of Banjo Kazooie support the inclusion of the characters in the game. With that said, there’d be little to stop Nintendo getting Banjo & Kazooie for Smash Bros Ultimate if they wanted it.

It’s clear to see that the duo of Banjo Kazooie is by far one of the most wanted Smash Bros Ultimate DLC characters. With Sakurai basing many of the roster choices on fan demand, they may make it into a future DLC Pack.
