At the moment, Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has 76 playable characters. That’s about to change. As early as tomorrow’s reveal at 7am PT / 10am ET, a new contender will be stepping into the arena. Update here!
But who could it be? Hints are few and far between, but speculation is running rampant on social media. Fans want everyone from Geno (Super Mario RPG), to Fiora from Xenoblade Chronicles, Roald from Animal Crossing, Sora from Kingdom Hearts, and even Rayman from, well, Rayman. Among many, many others.
Whoever Nintendo and creator / game director Masahiro Sakurai announces, it’s sure to please some fans and frustrate others. That’s the price you pay for only being able to slot some 80-odd characters into a big ol’ battle game when you have thousands to choose from. But it’s also one of the reasons the title is on our list of the Best Nintendo Switch Games out there.
The next #SmashBrosUltimate DLC fighter will be revealed tomorrow at 7am PT! The video presentation will be roughly 3 minutes long, followed by a brief message from Director Masahiro Sakurai. Tune-in here tomorrow: https://t.co/7RL5x0EEVI pic.twitter.com/Fqmw03axMv
