Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Reveals New Character to Join DLC Fighters

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.

Currently, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's DLC fighters include the classic Piranha Plant from Super Mario Bros. fame, Joker from Persona 5, Hero from Dragon Quest, Banjo & Kazooie from, well you know, Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury, Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses, and, most recently, Min Min from ARMS. At the very least, the next fighter will be revealed as part of Challenger Pack 7 out of a possible 11 total (for now).

If you want to pick up the DLC and expand your roster of fighters, head here to find out more. Each Challenger Pack contains 1 new fighter, 1 new stage, and additional music tracks. Stay tuned for the big reveal tomorrow morning!
