Banjo-Kazooie and Dragon Quest characters are headed to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Favorite characters from two franchises that mean a lot to long-time Nintendo fans are headed home.
An assortment of heroes from the Dragon Quest series, along with the eponymous bird/bear duo Banjo-Kazooie and related titles, are headed to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as part of the fighter's pass, Nintendo announced today in its E3 Direct presentation.
The first reveal was the hero from Dragon Quest XI, which itself is also Switch-bound later this year. He fought against darkness in familiar Smash environs. Then, as the trailer progressed, it was revealed that players will also be able to control heroes originally introduced in Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation (NES), Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen (NES) and Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King (PS2). The adorable Slime mascot also made an appearance, along with various other components familiar to long-time fans of that franchise.
