I feel like this is more of a confirmation that it won’t happen. Don’t see anyone being okay with teasing it if it were in the pipeline.

It seems like major rival hardware makers exclusives are the new hot thing for Smash DLC so it's possible.

Next is Kratos.

Developers want their character in a game franchise that has a lot of awereness potential.
And water is wet.

I'm torn on who I would want as a potential Microsoft rep. Banjo has the most history with Nintendo, Master Chief would be the best rep for the Xbox brand as a whole, and Steve is the most recognizable character to the most players. Any of them would work.

I dont see MC in Smash as likely. Every developer pretty wants to have one of their characters in a Smash game.

It will end up being Banjo, or Steve imo. I do see a small possibility of a port of something Halo related on Switch though.

Has a developer ever said they’d hate to see their character in Smash?

I wouldn't read much into it personally. Obviously anything is possible but I very much doubt it means anything.

Smash is a huge deal for notoriety. There are people who only know Cloud from Smash

everyone wants their character in smash but this is definitely an interesting tweet.

Feels weird but Snake is there so why not

If he did make it in I'd prefer if he was a heavier slower moving character
All power slower mobility
For some moves an energy sword pops out like Ganondorf
All impact effects against him are yellow instead of the usual blues/reds and when he gets launched he has his shield pop animation

For the final smash a warthog drives by and he hops on the back gun as it quickly drives off screen, followed by a quick scene where any character that got hit by the passing warthog falls into this scene and gets fired on by warthog and banshee alike

ewwww

no thanks!

Banjo and Kazooie would just be a Duck Hunt clone. Lets have an interesting character that is actually loved with a unique moveset.
Having a character that is sort of similar to DUCK HUNTS play-style: No way!

Having 15 Blue Haired Characters with Swords: Okay!!

It's all I want.

Have you even played Banjo-Kazooie? Their movesets would be very different based on the number of weird abilities in that game. Maybe the only move I can see being similar is the recovery. Duck Hunt is about NES-Zapper based projectiles.

Yeah you’re clueless. You don’t know what you’re talking about if you think Banjo Kazooie would be a Duck Hunt clone. Go play the Banjo Kazooie games before you talk this silliness

They wouldn't have said this if he was actually in the Fighter Pass. Good.

I don't care what anyone says. Xbox's mascot has no place being in Nintendo's crossover.

If anything this means its less likely, Phil Spencer said Banjo was good to go a long time ago

I'd argue that this is a very carefully communicated hint of this still being possible. A tweet like that doesn't go out without major sign-off from 343's handlers, and it's not responding to some rando account but rather the official "Twitter Gaming" one. Super interesting.

If MCC is actually coming to Switch then they should do it

Better than promoting PS4 exclusives, and Master Chief is actually an iconic character unlike Joker (who?)

Smash isnt an exclusive Nintendo cross over tho. People are so weird with wanting these arbitrary roster restriction rules.
