A few years ago, when the big video game companies were locked in a terrible secrecy, it would have been unthinkable that a character from one manufacturer appeared on the console of another of its competitors. However, things have changed noticeably and Nintendo and Microsoft have such a good relationship that Banjo and Kazooie are heading to be part of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
” How have you done this? I have not believed that is too important, “explained Phil Spencer in an interview with the Kotaku portal.” Obviously, we are one of the most important distributors in Switch, and we have an excellent relationship with your third-party publishing team And you have already seen how ambitious they are with each character of Smash, so it has ended up being part of the relationship agreement we have with them. “
” There has been no type of decision between executives or anything like that, “I continued. ” People have been asking for social media for a long time. `When is Banjo going to Smash? ‘, And that’s something we’ve always been very open to. & Quot ;.
” The licensing agreements between the two companies are something that will continue to “, commented Spencer. ” The reasons we have for this are not interesting, but what is exciting is that we have Rare in our ranks and, obviously, there is a story between Nintendo and Rare that comes from the past, so many times they ask us things. If, for example, it is good to do such and such a thing. I think it’s great that Banjo is going to be in Smash ”
This is the usual line of the Microsoft video game division and, in fact, we have been confident that Xbox could bring more sagas to consoles Nintendo or PlayStation.
