Smash Bros. Ultimate display at 7-Eleven may indicate Banjo-Kazooie's release date sneaking up

Is the duo coming soon?

Who knew that 7-Eleven would end up being a great indicator for when to expect DLC to launch? Just a few weeks back, 7-Eleven had an in-store display in Japan for Smash Bros. Ultimate, which featured Dragon Quest's Hero. That in-store display was set to run until Aug. 4th, 2019, and this was back when we didn't have a release date for Hero. Many speculated that Hero would be added to the game before the 7-Eleven campaign ended, and they were right. Hero ended up hitting Smash Bros. Ultimate on July 30th, 2019.

Now 7-Eleven is back with another display, and this one features Banjo-Kazooie. The campaign is set to run until Sept. 15th, 2019. If we do a little math based on what happen last time, we should expect Banjo-Kazooie to hit Smash Bros. Ultimate sometime around Sept. 10th, 2019. Even if that doesn't turn out to be true, I think it's safe to say Banjo-Kazooie will be released sometime before the 15th.

Thanks to Andreslop24 for the heads up!


With Tokyo game show happening next week they probably will release him this week or next. They never go to the show but always seem to have parallel announcements around the event. It seems they will release him with a video and it ends with an snk character being announced as the 4th character pack.
