Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is getting more DLC fighters

Smash Ultimate DLC fighter the game awards

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch has the biggest roster in franchise history. Every past fighter is returning,  along with some new ones. After launch, Nintendo announced plans for six DLC fighters. So far five of them have been revealed, and just one mystery remains… or so we thought. During today’s Nintendo Direct we learned that there’s even more DLC goodness on the way!

More Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC Fighters incoming

Nintendo announced that after the sixth and final character from the first wave is released, they’ll begin work on even more DLC fighters. Unfortunately, Nintendo didn’t give us any hints about who these fighters will be or when we can expect them. That said, I’m sure the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate community can patiently wait to find out. Ah, who am I kidding, let’s go nuts! There are still plenty of characters for Nintendo to choose from. Nintendo has a rich history of first-party games, and they can always reach out to more third-party developers.

What DLC fighters would you like to see join the Super Smash Bros. cast? Personally, I’d love to see Paper Mario, Shovel Knight, and Geno, to name a few. Let us know who you’re hoping for in the comments below!
