Each time a new version is released, Super Smash Bros. offers more and more characters to battle with from different franchises. An under-rated benefit of the game is discovering different franchises that aren't just the main faces of Nintendo. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the Nintendo Switch is no exception, with a large amount of both the best games on Switch and some lesser-known games represented. Take a look at all the franchises you will see within the game and their latest title.

Banjo-Kazooie were a later addition to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate but they showed up with a bang. Unfortunately this is their only appearance on the Switch. Their most recent title on a Nintendo Console is Banjo-Pilot for the Game Boy Advance. Since that has been so long ago your best bet for finding this title online would be eBay, if you're looking to break out your old Game Boy.

Bayonetta
