And Banjo-Kazooie has a huge nostalgia factor for lots of people and it could get new fans if there's a new game, and I'd guess there's a bigger overlap between Smash and Banjo-Kazooie fans than Smash and Resident Evil fans. I seriously doubt that many RE fans on other platforms will buy a Switch and Smash AND the DLC just because they put Jill in Smash or something like that.
In the end, most people who'll buy the DLC are Nintendo fans who'd buy it regardless of who it was. It's all a marketing tool after all and getting BK in Smash would generate a lot of buzz.
I'm not even a BK fan, by the way, I just think their inclusion makes a lot of sense.
