This won’t be the first time Nintendo has used the awards show to announce a big Super Smash Bros. addition. Last year Nintendo surprised everyone with the reveal of Joker from Persona 5 for the party fighting game, who eventually released on April 17 earlier this year.
This latest fighter will be the third one included with Ultimate’s Fighter Pass 2. The DLC pack has already received Min Min from Nintendo’s other fighter, Arms, as well as Steve from Minecraft. After tonight’s reveal, the pack will still have three more unannounced fighters to reveal. Designer Masahiro Sakurai has said that all of the fighters have already been decided, so Nintendo is not open to additional suggestions.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the biggest game in the series yet, bringing together all previous inclusion from other Smash titles and continuing to grow its roster. Back in 2018, our Super Smash Bros. Ultimate review praised the game’s depth and amount of content, with critic Edmond Tran writing, “Ultimate’s diverse content is compelling, its strong mechanics are refined, and the encompassing collection is simply superb.”
