If I live to be a hundred, I'll never forget that big storm a couple of years ago. The weather closed in and… well, you might not believe it, but our beloved Super Smash Bros fan base almost missed the annual Smashmas!
Oh excuse me, you can call me "King Dedede." What's the matter, haven't you seen a fat, talking snow penguin with a giant star-studded hammer before?
It's nice around here isn't it? I call this place "Smashtown," better known as the "North Pole." A lovely place to live, you know. My old buddies, the Waddle Dees seem to like it too (a group Waddle Dees are shown in the background, playing in the snow). Of course the number one citizens up here are Sakurai and Mrs. Sakurai. They live right over there (King Dedede points his hammer forward to a vast, Japanese castle). The first castle on the left. As a matter of fact, the only castle on the left.
In a dark room, in front of a computer, a familiar, slender Japanese man in a black, button up shirt was working very hard on Super Smash Bros content. He had an ardent desire to please his fans and worked tirelessly, day after day, to do just that.
The man's work was interrupted when a beautiful Japanese woman in a pink kimono walked into the room and said, "Daddy Sakurai, you've been working relentlessly. It's not good for your health. Please, take a break!"
"I'm busy, Mama, Smashmas is coming and I want to please the fans!" Sakurai objected.
"You've almost lost your arm once and taken an IV drop, and your fans are BEGGING you to take a break!" Mrs. Sakurai argued. She then began trying to pull a resisting Sakurai away from his computer, begging, "Please, PLEASE, TAKE A BREAK!"
Now don't any of you worry your heads about Sakurai. Mrs. Sakurai will have him plenty rested up by Smashmas Eve. It's always the same story.
Ahhh. I LOVE this Smashmassy time of year! Especially when everything's running happy and smooth like it is this season. Nothing like that year of the big snowstorms. Ughhhh! I don't know what we would have done without Banjo to pull us through. Anyway… hmmm, Banjo? Could it be that some of you are not acquainted with the story of Banjo? Well, pull up an ice block and lend an ear.
Now, you know how Sakurai uses the Original 12 to pull his Hype Train. You know Mario, Donkey Kong, Link, Samus, Yoshi, and Kirby… Fox, Pikachu, Luigi, Ness, Captain Falcon, and Jigglypuff. (Singing) But do you recall, the most famous Smash Bear of all? (An instrumental version of Banjo the Red-Nosed Smash Bear subsequently begins to play)
