Sakurai on his twitter just said that DLC is finalized and was completely chosen by Nintendo. I think this raises the chances of the characters I picked, and lowers some of the characters like Geno

 

Also nintendo will pick the popular charcaters not in yet. So maybe like this...

 

1) Bandana Dee (Staple in Kirby series)

2) Dixie Kong

3) ARMS character (Minmin/Twintelle/Helix?)

4) Captain Toad (thrownin Toadette as Echo or alt)

5) Paper Mario

I'm not sure how good these characters are for dlc picks tho

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. 

After reviewing my list a bit more, I could see Joker being switched with a Yokai Watch character(I think his name is Jibanyan?).

I don't think that raises or lowers your selection at all

Nintendo choosing probably means they are going to go for characters that ppl want but are related to IPs they themselves want to push.

i actually think that lowers the 3rd party output.

But of course it will be fun to see who they actually do decide on.

Having anyone of these characters does benefit them atleast, as they all have some type of games on a Nintendo system. Plus I can't think of that many other first parties characters that seems appropriate 



The fact that Nintendo made the selections almost entirely kills Geno's chances off completely then. Edelgard's as good as confirmed, gotta have a new FE rep to push Three Houses next year.

I don't think 3rd parties have a good chance of getting in (Besides maybe Jeanne as a Bayo echo, but I think she'll be distributed separately as free DLC close to Bayo 3's release; possibly a SMT5 character nearer to that game's release) unless Square is sending another exclusive game to Nintendo; Why would someone from Kingdom Hearts, Persona or even Banjo Kazooie get in if those games aren't coming to Switch? It goes directly against Nintendo's interests to have them in.

I dunno, i cant say I agree. Characters for new games coming out makes sense. Like FE , but characters like Joker make zero sense.

Another thing is that there is so much interest already in the game that Nintendo will probably feel its better to 'market' their upcoming games. Like, if you have a DQ rep, does that really make the game buyable for a whole new segment of ppl? im going to say not so much

Sakurai needs a long break after all this. The man pours so much of his heart into this series.



Some days I just blow up.

Nintendo have confirmed they've decided on the 5 DLC characters, judging but what is more likely from them my guess on the five are:

- Main character from Fire Emblem Three Houses.
- A Xenoblade 2 character maybe possibly Jin if they don't go for Rex.
- Dante from DMC as the surprise character.
- Another Zelda representative following BOTW taking the series to a new high.
- Either a Tekken or Virtua Fighter rep.

We all know KH is coming to switch, and persona will atleast get a spinoff. Steve needs no explanation

This must be one of the worst character lineups I've ever seen.

So its realistic though lol. Also out of all of those i picked Bandana Dee is probably the most popular pick for japanese audience at this point and Dixie is amongst the fan favorite thats left (should of already been in)

 

The other three are arguable sure. My personally picks wont make it (top 5) other than bandana dee. Dont sleep on his popularity lol
