Xbox boss Phil Spencer is not afraid to talk about the games of other companies. When he was asked about the possibility of allowing the famous platforming duo Banjo-Kazooie to be DLC characters for Smash Bros., he said:
“I think it would be cool if Banjo was in the next SSB DLC. We’ve worked with Nintendo on Rare IP before, no issues.” Phil Spencer on Twitter
Seeing Banjo-Kazooie in Smash Bros. has always been a wanted addition for me and thousands of other fans of the first two classic games on the Nintendo 64. I think this is just another example of how Spencer really is the most gamer-focused boss the Xbox division of Microsoft has ever had. Now if Nintendo will really work with Microsoft and Rare to get this done is the real question.
