Banjo-Kazooie is Out For Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Today

The wait is finally over.

Banjo-Kazooie is coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate later today, September 4. After today's Nintendo Direct is finished, it will be followed by a video detailing specifics on the character's moveset.

Announced in Nintendo's E3 2019 Direct with a cheeky Duck Hunt fake-out, many of the duo's moves are based on moves they had in the original Banjo-Kazooie games for the N64. There are also some nods to Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts for the Xbox 360.
