Skull Kid is listed as an assist trophy on smash site so that’s basically deconfirmed.

I didn't see that...That sucks



Around the Network
I expect more top quality characters like Piranha Plant.

- Skull Kid

OMG YES YES YES pleasssseeee 

I fear that we'll get a BOTW rep before Skull Kid though (or more likely just no DLC Zelda rep at all)

3. Joker from Persona 5 

Ah, I see you are a man of culture as well.

Anyways, here's a lowkey prediction no one is saying, y'all owe me $5 if I get this right:



lara croft
crash
fire emblem 3 houses main character
frog/glenn
urbosa


Sakurai seemed to imply the DLC characters were chosen at the start of development, since Rex "came out too late" to make the roster and the Mii costume is his way of adding Xenoblade 2 content in. That's probably also why ARMS got Mii costumes and an Assist Trophy. So, newer characters like Fire Emblem Three Houses are probably out. The only thing I'm curious about is if Spirits disconfirms a character or not (playable fighters have Spirits of some of their different costumes, so who knows).

1. Elma (there's a suspicious lack of Xenoblade Chronicles X music while 1 and 2 have tracks)
2. Geno (Sakurai has said he wanted him in Brawl, I believe. He might try again)
3. Shantae (Unlikely. WayForward was silent about her being in Smash, clearly under NDA since she's a Spirit. Now they're answering questions about her being a Spirit but silent about any questions about her being possible DLC. Probably nothing, but I was eying them before when they were uncharacteristically silent and it turned out to be a sign)
4. Steve or Banjo-Kazooie (I'm cheating here, but Phil Spencer has suggested he'd be okay working with Nintendo on this, but it's hard to say which it would be. Minecraft is one of the best-selling games ever and is huge in Japan and on Switch, but Banjo-Kazooie have history)
5. Bandana Waddle Dee (Technically created by Sakurai since he was in Kirby Super Star, Kirby hasn't gotten a new rep since Brawl)

Watch me be 0 for 5 when it's all said and done. XD

The music tracks are exactly why  I think Elma is dlc as well. I made a bet about Bandana Dee not being in the game, so  I hope that prediction is wrong lol.  



I feel bad asking for more from Sakurai and his team, but since he still doesn't want to close the book on Ultimate.

I'm still fingers crossed that the tracklist of Xenoblade is not the complete one and that you can unlock more in the shop, because I really want X music and some better representatives from 2.

If not I would really like Elma there, with a Mira stage, with some focus on continents like Oblivia or Sylvalum to make it stand out from Gaur Plains.

The characters I really want tho, are Bandana Dee, the best companion of the lord and savior Kirby, and Lloyd Irving from Tales of Symphonia, is really weird that we only have one rep from Namco.

 

Anything else would be a bonus for me, I'm already quite happy with the characters added as Assist trophies like Black Knight from the Telius FEs, Fatal Frame and really cool Virtua Fighter throwback with Akira and the really nice spirits additions like Shantae, Baten Kaitos and Style Savvy.
