Watch the Smash Bros. DLC fighter reveal live right here!

Super Smash Bros. DLC fighter reveal

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has the largest roster of any game in the series by far. The crossover game includes every past combatant, plus plenty of newcomers. On top of that, Nintendo’s been pumping out DLC! Five new playable characters were announced as part of a Fighter Pass, and four have been revealed thus far. Today, director Masahiro Sakurai pulls back the curtain on DLC fighter number five. The show starts at 6 a.m. Pacific / 9 a.m. Eastern, so I hope we have some early risers here! You can watch it live below, and we’ll be covering all the major announcements as they break.

More fighters are on the way

Despite the massive roster size, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate still isn’t complete. The new fighters have been well-received, and the fan base is hungry for more! Sakurai has already confirmed that the five combatants in the Fighter Pass won’t be the end. At this time we don’t know how many more DLC fighters are planned or if there will be a second Fighter Pass. That said, it’s hard not to get excited about even more Smash goodness! There are still plenty of Nintendo characters left to choose from, and third-party additions are always great for diversity.
