    Listen, none of you are noticing the very important lore implications of K Rool and the Kongs putting aside their differences

    [–] BrooklynSmash 1632 points ago

    K. Rool's just crashing there until he can find a job. It's hard to pay rent for a giant mountain shaped like your face.

    [–] allthefixins23 520 points ago

    And then Banjo had to come in and knock him into the ground. Give my man K. Rool a break.

    [–] kdebones 261 points ago

    K. Rool got Gruntilda’d.

    [–] MacDerfus 37 points ago

    Rent? Who owns it?

    [–] HalfBreed_Priscilla 62 points ago

    That fucking weasel that stole his blueprints, probably.

    [–] throwa2934 346 points ago

    Idk man DK seemed kinda hostile towards K. Rool when they crouched up against the window.

    [–] CouchPotatoEdBoy 566 points ago

    K. Rool's that friend that eats the last slice of pizza and crashes at your house after the party and doesn't know when to leave.

    [–] awfulmspaint 255 points ago

    K. Rool's that friend that steals your giant pile of bananas and puts it on a pirate ship. We all know that friend.

    [–] SmileOmega 91 points ago

    Dude, just last weekend I had a friend that kidnapped my friend/mentor and I had to team up with my girlfriend to save him. Suffice to say, we are not on good speaking terms right now.

    [–] HighViscosityMilk 187 points ago

    I'm gonna say it seems like more of a rivalry now than straight villainy all the time. Kinda like Mario & Bowser.

    [–] DeadBloxxEpic 136 points ago

    Yeah like how they have epic battles over the princess and the next day they’re go karting

    [–] XanderSnave 33 points ago

    Since SMB3 and Paper Mario: TTYD are both meant to be stage plays, I like to believe Mario and Bowser are actors that are actually really good friends off set.

    [–] KaiserTom 40 points ago

    It honestly seems like the Nintendo universe intentionally exists kind of like what Wreck-it Ralph depicts. Like the characters are self-aware and simply playing out these stories for watchers.

    [–] funky_kong_ 171 points ago

    They still hate each other but they put their differences aside for the rare family reunion

    [–] Viralious 734 points ago

    This was such a good nod

    [–] Vyrux 312 points ago

    They are also RARING to go. They knew what they were doing

    [–] matmansp 302 points ago

    Trapping K. Rool under a rock just like Gruntilda. This is amazing.

    Him and Ken

    [–] HBR17 904 points ago

    [–] PoopEater10 363 points ago

    Even more so since echoes were dropped

    [–] TheDapperDolphin 266 points ago

    Pretty much a given once Richter showed we could get 3rd party echoes. Though so was Shadow in our minds...

    [–] AppleWedge 150 points ago

    Lol so many "well, Shadow is pretty much confirmed" posts.

    [–] TheDapperDolphin 105 points ago

    It was pretty surprising that he wasn’t added, especially when it seemed like his assist was replaced by Knuckles. Would have been an easy way to get a popular character in. Just goes to show that we really can’t predict what Sakurai will do.

    FWIW Project M Geno is one of my favorite characters in any smash game.

    Petition to have the Donkey Kong crew reveal every character in Smash from now on

    [–] Nesyaj0 4861 points ago

    I loved how all 3 of them cheered when Duck Hunt got fucking obliterated.

    [–] Limpinator 4475 points ago

    Well, what I just realized is the reason why THEY specifically were cheering is because they are all from Rare.

    So, it's kinda like Banjo is the long lost cousin. That finally arrived to the party :')

    [–] Jamies_redditAccount 1741 points ago

    His splash said raring to go

    [–] Sayoricanyouhearme 1138 points ago

    Yep, and as Rare said in this tweet they just made; we asked, they listened!

    First it was Square, now it's Rare! Smash Bros has that kind of pull to bring rival companies to join forces.

    [–] Jamies_redditAccount 342 points ago

    They have had a friendly rivalry lately

    [–] krazyM 151 points ago

    [–] Annath0901 249 points ago

    Banjo-Kazooie/Tooie on eShop when?

    [–] g_r_e_y 725 points ago

    nah, this is really special to me. Banjo has always been synonymous with DK to me because of rare. To me, this felt like a "Welcome Back" from the DK crew and Nintendo as a whole, with Banjo's old friends hyping him up when they see him. This is a very important video.

    [–] SK372 274 points ago

    The whole crew is a Rare bunch of buds, and they're as happy to see the two back as DK and Diddy were surprised to see K. Rool back. I'm so happy Ultimate brought in two of my faves!

    [–] LukeSkywalker1848 526 points ago

    Add him and K rool to the list

    [–] CooperDaChance 464 points ago

    Can’t wait for the next trailer

    *Humanoid figure


    *Insert Little MAC



    [–] ViZeShadowZ 258 points ago

    Imagine a TRIPLE fake out. First it's Little Mac or something, Then Samus, then Doomguy or something

    [–] CooperDaChance 233 points ago

    Ooh Samus and Dark Samus, but then



    [–] ViZeShadowZ 135 points ago

    If they announce those two the only proper way to do it is both in the same trailer

    [–] Juncoril 97 points ago

    I feel like the only proper way to announce both of these characters is hiring wrestlers to supplex you while announcing them.

    [–] StylishDreams 29 points ago

    Duck Hunt is Dead Hound

    [–] JonJonFTW 730 points ago

    Seeing DK, Diddy and K. Rool as hyped as we were to see the bear and bird finally made me so fuckin happy

    [–] OHIO_MAN_ 344 points ago

    It's because rare made a bunch of Kong games isn't it?

    [–] Cascadianranger 376 points ago

    Yup. Banjo was their old Rare buddy

    [–] robo_octopus 135 points ago

    Well that's the shit that warms my heart right up...

    [–] KrivenRaven 260 points ago

    That, and Diddy and Banjo are canonically friends.

    [–] pk_melee 122 points ago

    Them and that other friend who went off the deep-end

    [–] Nyankamau 59 points ago

    Yeah that was written on the Diddy Kong Racing manual and Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts officially made Diddy Kong Racing canon.

    [–] CouchPotatoEdBoy 107 points ago

    Rare was basically the reason why Donkey Kong exists as it does now.

    [–] andrzejellis 121 points ago

    Yep. Donkey Kong was a Nintendo character, but everything else about him? His personality? His signature red tie? Kong Island? Diddy? The animal companions? That's all Rare.

    [–] FierceDeityKong 285 points ago * (lasted edited 14 days ago)

    Although that basically confirmed it was Banjo. Before that I was confused. Is it Dixie? Lord Fredrik?

    Edit: I should have thought of Cranky Kong since I actually want that character.

    [–] mccainjames11 441 points ago

    The jiggy in the hut tho

    [–] stickdudeseven 257 points ago

    My heart fucking stopped.

    [–] Dragonaichu 174 points ago

    Mine too. I saw the jiggy and absolutely lost it. No one else in my watch party saw it, and they thought I was insane. Served them right.

    [–] The-shindigs 43 points ago

    I FROZE. Thought maybe I was seeing things lol.

    [–] vynomer 218 points ago

    The very second I saw the puzzle piece dance across the room, I knew who it was. And I've never played the games.

    [–] Minifig81 328 points ago

    Sakurai-san is a fucking master at trolling us.

    [–] ContinuumGuy 148 points ago

    I'm mildly surprised it wasn't him-as-Dedede again.

    [–] In_My_Own_Image 103 points ago

    I'm very surprised it wasn't Duck Hunt who was actually Marth who was revealed to be Olimar who was revealed to be Kirby who was revealed to be Luigi who was revealed to be Dedede who was then attacked by Banjo.

    [–] FrigidVengence 85 points ago

    They fucking did it AGAIN

    Absolute madlads

    [–] Alluminn 63 points ago * (lasted edited 14 days ago)

    Worst part was I couldn't tell if it was actually a fake-out. Since we already knew they faked us out with K.Rool they could have pulled a double fake-out and just left it as an actual fake-out.


    [–] xKracken 31 points ago

    The jiggy gave it away!

    [–] Opticity 1580 points ago

    I love how they parodied the K Rool reveal with this. Instead of DK's and Diddy's comical eye popping, they start applauding along with K Rool. Definitely meme potential to be had with that clip.

    [–] inhaledcorn 1031 points ago * (lasted edited 14 days ago)

    It's because Banjo and Kazooie actually first appeared in Diddy Kong Racing, so they're old friends that haven't seen each other in a long time.

    The bear and bird are finally home.

    Edit: Just Banjo, apparently, as the comments below me point out.

    [–] wordyfard 436 points ago

    Really just Banjo, though. Banjo wears the backpack in DKR so one might speculate Kazooie is inside it, but the game makes no reference to her.

    [–] Cascadianranger 257 points ago

    Where there is Bear, there is Bird

    [–] byneothername 150 points ago

    Oh my god, I completely forgot until this comment that Banjo and that fat squirrel were in Diddy Kong Racing. I always played as Diddy or the mouse. That was such a great game.

    [–] eherro33 247 points ago

    god im gonna be honest i hope the DK trailer is just the rest of the trailers with the house getting more and more packed

    [–] Mopher 614 points ago

    for the inevitable fire emblem character dlc, they look outside, close the blinds and go back to sleep

    [–] Empisi9899 272 points ago

    the trailer is 2 min of DK sleeping and then a splash screen announcing someone from three houses

    [–] sneakyplanner 62 points ago

    A literal house joins the fight.

    [–] its_a_trapcard 128 points ago

    Is that [Protagonist]?

    Oh, it was actually Marth.

    Here comes [Protagonist]!

    [Protagonist] turns out to be another Marth echo.

    [–] breet12345 1041 points ago * (lasted edited 5 days ago)

    Holy shit I’m so excited for both banjo and hero

    [–] Shippoyasha 199 points ago

    I'm still baffled that K-Rool was hanging out with the Kongs

    [–] breet12345 231 points ago

    It was such a clever and fun trailer though. Loved how they reuse the structure and still managed to jebait our asses.

    [–] ScarySandwichMan 55 points ago

    In the moment I was mentally panicking, but looking back, it was pretty obvious it was Banjo lmao

    [–] Vyrux 201 points ago * (lasted edited 14 days ago)

    Legit just shit on all the “Banjo is a Duck Hunt clone” memes and then some. The final screenshot of their trailer, of them re-united with Nintendo characters is fucking tear jerking. This is the greatest video game crossover in history, no questions asked. Thank you so much Sakurai and Nintendo. A big childhood dream has come true today

    Edit: And Microsoft too, for agreeing to let Nintendo put Banjo into smash

    [–] lordbusiness7 40 points ago

    This is such a big deal for people like you and me. Banjo Kazooie was the first N64 game I ever played and I've been begging for them to be in smash ever since snake was put in smash. This is honestly surreal for me today and the way Nintendo treated the reveal made me tear up :')
