04/20/2020: Revolvers are too brutal for Super Smash Bros. and therefore some characters are automatically excluded as potential newcomers?

April 21, 2020: Pepe seems to have told Banjo & Kazooie something nasty about Nana, because Banjo grabs the poor girl angrily on the collar, while Pepe laughs mischievously behind it:
04/22/2020: This block of flats from the Tomodachi Life-Stage looks a little crooked, don’t you think? It’s surprising that Daisy comes to the rescue to push the house straight again:
