Banjo, Terry Bogard, and Sans Costume Heading to Smash

During yesterday’s Nintendo Direct it was announced that Banjo would be heading to Smash a lot sooner than we all expected. In fact, you can download and play as Banjo right now by updating your copy of Smash Ultimate. That wasn’t all the Smash news we got during the Direct, though. Immediately after Nintendo’s main presentation, director of Smash Brothers Masahiro Sakurai, took to the screen, delivering a 25 minute video about all the upcoming features heading to Smash Bros – we’re going to run through the highlights.

You can watch the entire of Mr. Sakurai’s presentation here:


As previously stated, Banjo has joined the Smash roster. I’ve played as him for just over an hour now and he handles like a total dream. It’s clear that a lot of love and care went into crafting not only his move-set and animations, but also his stage, Spiral Mountain, which features several adorable character cameos from Banjo’s universe. This new stage also sports 10 new tracks from the Banjo games, 7 of which are all-new remixes and are perfectly suited for Smash.

Following Banjo was hands down one of the biggest surprises to come out of Sakurai’s presentation: the unveiling of Undertale’s Sans as a DLC Mii Fighter costume. Not only can you rock San’s signature look, his costume pack also comes with a remix of everyone’s favourite track: Megalovania – the ultimate piece of music if you want to give someone a bad time.

Following the announcement video from the main Nintendo Direct, Terry Bogard was officially revealed to be the 4th character in the Smash Brothers DLC Character Pack. Sakurai made it clear that this character was in the early stages of development, but he was generous enough to show off a sneak peek of Terry’s in game model and an attack that’s likely his neutral B: power wave. Terry is scheduled to release sometime in November this year.

As a last piece of news, Sakurai also confirmed that they weren’t going to stop at 5 DLC fighters since even more new characters are currently in development! No number was put on how many characters were being worked on but my mind is already racing to think who they could possibly add next to the already expansive roster.

Phew, lots of Smash news to digest after an already epic Nintendo Direct. Well, what are you waiting for? Stop reading this and go check out Banjo in Smash!
