Xbox Boss Phil Spencer Wants Banjo Kazooie as Smash Bros DLC

Banjo Kazooie is a popular pick for the next Smash Bros. champion - and Xbox head Phil Spencer likes the idea, too.

Nintendo wants to know who fans think the next Super Smash Bros. champion should be - and Xbox head honcho Phil Spencer is on board to make that next champion Banjo Kazooie.

In a tweet to user @PedroDarkinson, who had messaged Spencer about Banjo's popularity in the Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot, the Xbox boss mentioned he's definitely not opposed to seeing Banjo as the next champ in the popular Nintendo property:

Spencer's tweet was all the encouragement his followers needed to bombard him with support for the idea - at the time of this writing, the message had been retweeted 2,292 times, favorited 2,297 times, and had a long list of replies rooting for Banjo's inclusion in the next Smash DLC.

You still have plenty of time to vote for Banjo (or any other champion you'd like to see included at the game) - the Smash Bros. Fighter Ballot is open for voting until October 3, 2015.

Who would you like to see in the next Smash DLC? Let us know in the comments below!
