Smash Ultimate DLC Predictions

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Smash Ultimate DLC Predictions

You could hardly predict Mr. Sakurai before. After he made a Pirahna Plant playable, I think almost any character you could think of has a 5% or higher chance of getting in.




Pretty noncommittal in my predictions as far as specificity goes.
1. FE: Three Houses Rep
2. Elma or Rex and Pyra
3. Geno
4. Karate Joe
5. Pokemon Gen 8 Rep

Lifetime Sales Predictions 

Wii U: 14.1 mil (was 15 million). PS4: 100 mil. Xbox One: 50 mil. 

3DS: 73 mil (was 63 million). PS Vita: 16.7 mil (was 15 milion).

There's two things about that.

#1: Nintendo wants to sell these characters and, unlike Wii U which brought back some easy to develop veterans at discount, these will all be sold at full price.  The full-priced DLC, Ryu, Cloud, and Bayonetta, were all fairly hyped 3rd party licenses (exception for the also slightly discounted Corrin).  I can only Imagine that Piranha Plant is the free bonus character because Nintendo knows that he'd be the least marketable DLC.  It doesn't make any sense to add Ripley, Simon Belmont, and King K. Rool to the main game and then offer scrubs that no one is interested in as paid DLC.

#2:  Sakurai literally acknowledged that buying the Fighters Pass without knowing the characters was a leap of faith for his fans and customers and asked us to trust him.  I don't think they would have had him put his word on the line like that if they knew they were going to give us Shy Guy, Bandana Dee, an Octorok, another clone of Marth, and Slippy Toad.



Well i still the 5 unannounced characters are still the ones that were leaked. Except for Isaac, his a confirned assist trophy.

Short list:

1. Bandanna Dee
2. Decidueye
3. Bethesda character (DOOM Guy/Dovahkin/Other)
4. Banjo
5. Conker (joking)

Also Piranha Plant is a joke character and as such shouldn't be used as reference for who has a chance of getting in. Every Smash so far has had a joke character, and Ultimate was missing one, so now it came and should be taken as what it is - an outliar.

It'd still be better than Young Conker.

Don't remember Young Conker? Consider that a blessing.



Some days I just blow up.

What I want:

1. Banjo Kazooie
2. Selphie Tilmitt - FF8
3. Laguna Loire - FF8/ Isaac from Golden Sun
4. Rinoa Heartilly - FF8/ Dixie Kong
5. Squall Leonhart - FF8/ Ratchet and Clank

I graciously put some alternatives in case Sakurai thinks it's wrong to have too many reps from a single third party game. The second season pass will hopefully contain more FF characters.

What I expect:

Lloyd Irving - Tales of Symphonia
Waluigi
Place reserved for Pokemon rep
Place reserved for Fire Emblem rep
Geno - Super Mario RPG

- 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) 

The next Zelda rep will probably be another Link, they seem to have the highest chance. Maybe a Dark Link echo or Fierce Deity Link.



What I really want:

Amaterasu - pretty much impossible as a somewhat irrelevant third-party character from a game that never sold well.
Hollow Knight - absolutely impossible, obviously.
Wolf Link & Midna - don't think they'd ever do this.


What I kinda want:

Impa - would be cool as an echo of Sheik for more Zelda representativity. They said no echoes, though.
Dixie - same as above


What I think is really likely:

Rex - sounds weird that it's the Mii costume you get for buying the DLC, probably a sort of promise.
FE Three Houses rep - they did it with Roy and Corrin, it's just what they do, isn't it?
Geno - the fanboys are crying so hard for this one it just has to happen at some point.


What I'm afraid of:

Steve - it's possible but please for the love of god no.
Rayman - really, really don't want this guy in my Smash.
Incineroar - oh, wait


Edit: have been editing the list as I remembered more stuff.
