Damn.

I think Ultimate has the best roster of any fighter out there.
Official Yu Narukami, Incineroar, Parasoul, Sombra, Black Widow, RE5 Jill, Kaede Akamatsu, Kamala Khan, Rehgar, Orisa, R.Mika, 2B, and Power Girl everywhere.

Banjo was the last character I really wanted for Smash, and the Hero is a nice bonus, especially since I've been marathoning DQ as of late.

I always wanted Banjo in Smash and preferred a Dragon Quest rep over a Final Fantasy rep. So yeah, these great choices for me. It does make me want to get SSBU a little bit more now.
Crossovers I want: PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale 2, Shonen Jump vs. Capcom, Street Fighter vs. Mortal Kombat, and Tekken vs. Dead or Alive/Virtua Fighter

If Banjo is the last character for Smash Ultimate, then it's a good news that Kyo Kusanagi will make a guest appearance in another fighting game.

The Dragon Quest Hero is a little peculiar though, it seems like they chose 4 different mains you can use...but it just feels like weird choices.

DQ11 hero is obvious, as it's the newest game and the Definitive Edition is coming to Switch soon.
DQ8 I think is one of the more popular games in the series?
My problem with DQ3 and 4 heroes is that both of those games let the main character be male or female, and with the precedent set by Robin and Corrin, (and Wii Fit Trainer sort of) it would have be cool to have that too (then again maybe that's still a thing) (EDIT: No, just checked the official site, all 4 characters get color swaps)

Apparently it covers multiple each "console generation" sort of, so that's cool.

Also I'm dumb and when "all" the DQ leads were on screen I thought they were all costumes, but it's just for the Final Smash.

Anyway, never played Persona or Banjoo-Kazooie, but I have played a few Dragon Quest games, so that's nice. I just hope it's got some good music variety, still can't get over the wasted opportunity of Final Fantasy music.

DQ 8 was most likely chosen because it’s the only one that’s not 11 that Westerners actually give a s*** about.

Jessica should have been the pick for Smash.
