Guh-huh! Banjo-Kazooie are now available to download in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The notoriously iconic duo have hit the live update servers and players can now delve into their unique and game representative move set.

Nintendo has released Banjo-Kazooie as one of the DLC fighters belonging to the Fighters Pass. Players can now download and enjoy the bear and breegull duo and judging from my personal experience with the fighters and a rough consensus of the communities response, Banjo-Kazooie has slotted extremely well into the games tier list.

The move set that Nintendo has equipped the character with is purely representative of the duo's iconic game back on the Nintendo 64. Much like the Nintendo 64 game, Banjo-Kazooie's jumps and mobility play a key factor in facing opponents. Not to mention he has a powerful side-B that can kill opponents at around 80%-90%. This move can also be combo'd with his down-B that drops a grenade behind the fighter.

I haven't played that many hours on Banjo-Kazooie, but from about the 5 hours I have on record I can see that the character has a lot of room for awesome setups and combos using both the grenade and his juggling tools. Overall, Nintendo has represented Banjo-Kazooie almost perfectly in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and I believe that Banjo-Kazooie fans are extremely happy with what they have received.
