Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Smash Ultimate DLC Predictions

Bandana Dee has no chance whatsoever for being DLC. That is the type of fighter that should already be in the base roster, or that one "bonus" character, which Piranha Plant already took up.

Sakurai isnt gonna make people pay money for unknown DLC characters and then have one of them be Waddle Dee. That would be absolutely inexcusable, and I think they know that too.

I'm buying the pass day one, and I will be disappointing if Bandana Dee is one of the 5, but he has a surprisingly strong backing for him



I don't know why so many people mentioned FE:Three Houses. If Rex didn't make it because the game released too late and we can assume planning for DLC has already been done, then no way Three Houses is included already.

Smash includes mostly japanese characters. No correction, they're all japanese characters. This seems odd, maybe Sakurai only talks to reps from japanese companies. But if he decides to include western gaming icons, two come especially to the mind and can't realistically be excluded:

  • Rayman
  • Lara Croft

Both are classic and well known gaming icons and the owning companies are currently on very good terms with Nintendo. I would also add Doom Guy, but I don't really see him as an icon - he doesn't even has a name. Duke Nukem would be different, but I don't even know who owns the IP by now and his franchise crashed and burned in the last period of time.

For the japanese 3rd-parties, most of the companies that are on good terms with Nintendo have at least two representatives: Sega has Sonic and Bayonetta (yes, it's still a Sega property), Konami has Solid Snake and Simon (+Richter), Capcom has MegaMan and Ryu (+Ken). But Square only has Cloud, and Namco (the company working on Smash) has only Pac-Man. So maybe these two companies get another rep? For Square the above mentioned Lara Croft would be a rep, but also the Slime from Dragon Quest. Slime has a Spirit, no idea if that is deconfirmation. For Namco it could be DigDug, galaga, Xevious, Tekken or SoulCalibur.

Another japanese company would be Level-5, which has with Professor Layton and Yokai Watch two franchises that would fit very well into Smash.

I doubt any other 3rd-party has a shot. Certainly no indies, I'm actually surprised Shovel Knight got a support trophy. Spirits are something else, and I would like Sans from Undertale as a Spirit.

For Nintendo we are scraping at the bottom of the barrel already. But yes, Elma from XCX seems certainly like a glaring omission, and therefore I think she is DLC. Captain Toad seems also like a possibility, as is Toadette. Besides that I can't think of anyone standing out enough to justify 6€



3DS-FC: 4511-1768-7903 (Mii-Name: Mnementh), Nintendo-Network-ID: Mnementh, Switch: SW-7706-3819-9381 (Mnementh)

Why you will not convince me I have chosen bad consoles. / awesome Miiverse art / my greatest games list

Bet with platformmaster918 and ethomaz about PS3 overtaking Wii in total sales.

Predictions: Switch / Switch / Switch / MHWorld / GOW > BOTW / Switch vs. XB1 in the US

I can see them possibly offering a few echo fighters post launch outside of the fighter pass as free DLC too (like ARMS and Mario Tennis got new characters). Would leave the door open for a few obvious ones: Jeanne around the release of Bayonetta 3, Dixie as a Diddy echo/Funky as a DK echo etc.


They said themselves that echos don't take much dev time, and dropping them periodically as limited time free DLC will bring people's attention back to Smash long after release

Bandana Waddle Dee is one of the most requested fighters in Japan, and that's where Sakurai lives and is from, so it's not surprising that he listens to that feedback the most.

Whilst I don't care if Bandanna Dee gets in, I would love a Shy Guy echo of them if they do, best Mario baddie

1) I think people are predicting a three houses rep is because of how Corrin was announced and released before FE Fates was even out. So it wouldn't be too surprising if Sora and Intelligent Systems coordinated early in development again to get 3 houses protagonist into the game. 

Plus, the fact that Sakurai loves over representing Fire Emblem in Smash. I think we are getting a FE character for sure. If it's not her, I think it's gonna be Takumi from Fates.

2) Square seems to be stingy with how much they allow for Smash. Not a SINGLE assist trophy, and only like 2 music tracks in the entire game (iirc). That's it. So I don't think there are that good of a chance of another Square rep, but we'll see.

3) I don't play Xenoblade whatsoever and don't know much, but while looking in another forums I did find out something. There is a lot of Xenoblade 1 and 2 music, and sort of a lack of Xeno X music. So that makes Elma much likelier, since they will probably include that music in the DLC.

4) Yokai Watch is a huge competitor of Pokemon in Japan, so much so that they were basically neck and neck for the 3DS era. Would Nintendo really give representation to them? Tinfoil hat speculation I know, but still.

5) Yes, I think that guy from Tekken (what's his face, kazuma or something?) OR a Soulcalibur rep could make it in too.

We know we will at least get 5 dlc characters, and we will most likely know all of them by this time next year. I wonder who can most accurately guess them. I'll Start. No particular order 

1. Sora or a DQ character

2.Elma

3. Joker from Persona 5 

4. Steve from Minecraft

5. Fire Emblem Three houses rep 

I could either be dead wrong or spot on. 

1. Won't work out. Too much red tape with Disney.

2. Don't know who she is.

3. Doubt it.

4. Please no!!

5. Not a bad idea, actually. :)



Some days I just blow up.

I won't guess all 5, but I think it's likely to see a Bethesda hero as a guest fighter. Particularly, dovakiin being the likely candidate. Bethesda and Nintendo have been very buddy buddy with each other with constant switch support. Just a prediction in the end, skyrims popularity increases my confidence. Personally I think it would be cool to have the stage be the snow mountain and have alduin or pathanax in the background with the dovakiin song playing.

Ive seen Arthur from Ghouls n Ghosts n Goblins mentioned here by some, not such a bad guess actually, I could see that happen.
