How Many Franchises Are in Smash?

With the recent additions of Hero and Banjo & Kazooie to the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighter roster — and the impending arrival of Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury and more DLC on the way — Smash Ultimate is by far the biggest crossover in gaming history.

Smash Bros. developers have made it clear in the recent Nintendo Direct and its aftermath that they want to continue to capitalize on how big of a crossover Smash Ultimate has become. The big question remains: just how many different gaming franchises will be represented in Smash once the DLC cycle ends?

I’ve been playing Nintendo games since I was 3 years old, and my earliest memory is watching my dad play Super Mario 64.
Since then, I’ve become as big of a fan as you might imagine: YouTube video projects, fan fiction, owning just about every amiibo — you name it!
I’m also a stalwart defender of underappreciated games like Skyward Sword, Other M, Super Paper Mario, Star Fox Adventures, Star Fox Zero and more. I love to see passion in a gaming product, and my desire on this site is to share a similar passion in what I write.

E3 2019 – Banjo returns to Nintendo in Smash Bros. Ultimate

This is a first, Nintendo have officially made my cry, for good reason too. Banjo-Kazooie is finally coming back on a Nintendo system as the third DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Banjo-Kazooie will be coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate sometime during Autumn 2019.

I am a huge Nintendo fan, hence why NintyBuzz exists. I especially love all things Zelda and Metroid. NintyBuzz was started by me back in the Summer of 2014, it started out mainly as a hobby, though the site has gradually grown, and I hope it grows for many years to come!

Yooka-Laylee Gets New Trailer and Release!

Old Rare fans [not saying the fans of Rare are rare] rejoice. The fellows over at Playtonic Games have recently revelled the first proper trailer for their Banjo-Kazooie spiritual successor, Yooka-Laylee. The trailer is packed full of platforming goodness. See Yooka roll! Gaze as Laylee takes flight [or glide]! And tremble at the duo’s almighty flower transformation! You can catch all this and more in the trailer below.

Some of you observant lot may realise that the video mentions that the titular duo will be shipping during Q1 2017, which is unfortunately a few months after the initial planned release [October 2016]. However, Playtonic were nice enough to provide a statement of why the game will be delayed. You can view this statement after the break, along with some brand new screenshots and art!

Meet Yooka and Laylee in Yooka-Laylee!

Those of you who have been following the ex-Rare employees and their newly found company, Playtonic Game, may have heard of a little project called Project Ukulele. Gamers rejoice, as the wonderfully British team have just revealed the main characters you will be controlling as well as the name of the game you will hopefully be playing (thanks to some ‘non-violent motivation’ from us).

Project Ukulele will now be referred to as Yooka and Laylee, and the game will be called… well… Yooka-Laylee. Yooka is a chameleon who can use its tongue to hang from various obstacles and probably reach items that are a bit to far for normal reach. Yooka will also be carrying along Laylee, the bat. Laylee is able to pick up Yooka and fly for a short period of time across chasms and can also emit a sonar blast. It is promised that there will be several other abilities the characters can perform together as a duo.

The Kickstarter will be launched tomorrow (May 1st) and the game is planned to be released on Mac, PC, Linux, Wii U, Xbox One and PS4, when each version will be released will all depend on the success of the crowd-funder, though seeing how known the developers are and how many vocal fans there are (myself included), I don’t see there being much problem for Playtonic to reach those targets.

Players who have £10/$15 to spare can reserve themselves a final copy if they pledge on Kickstarter. It has also been hinted that there will be other rewards, such as soundtracks, art books and a ’64-Bit’ special edition when the Kickstarter goes live!

What do you think of the characters? Will you be pledging? Tell us in the comments below!
