Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2 brings 6 new characters

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2

Masahiro Sakurai announced Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2 today, which will include six new characters! They have all been selected already, so don’t go yelling at him which characters you need. It’s set in stone, baby. Anyway, if you preorder Fighters Pass 2, you will receive an Ancient Soldier costume for Mii Swordfighter from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This will not be available anywhere else, so if you care about this sort of thing, do preorder the full pass!

You can preorder Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2 starting Jan. 28 when Byleth releases.

We have cued up Masahiro Sakurai’s presentation video to the appropriate moment where he discusses Fighters Pass 2 below.

Everyone had been hoping for another full-blown Fighters Pass, and now we’ve received it — and then some! You could drown in all the speculation of who this new assortment of characters will include. There are such obvious choices that fans have screamed for for a long time now, including Waluigi, Geno, and Dante. But Sakurai gonna Sakurai, and he does love to select an eclectic character when he isn’t selecting yet another sword wielder from Fire Emblem. So who can say what the future has in store?

In the meantime, take a lot at these amazing new Mii Fighter costumes, including Altair from Assassin’s Creed, Cuphead, and MegaMan.EXE!
