Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Smash Bros Ultimate DLC fighters have just now been decided

In the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Direct, it was revealed that in addition to the 74 (76) fighters already announced, we would also be getting 6 more fighters confirmed as DLC. The first of which being Piranha Plant, with the rest still unannounced. The way this announcement was worded in the Direct made it seem as though all fighters, including DLC, had been planned from the start, but Sakurai has just confirmed on Twitter that the 5 remaining DLC fighter have only just now been decided. This is big news since in the Direct, Sakurai specifically mentioned Rex not being playable since the roster was chosen before XC2 was announced, with his wording making it sound like he would even be out as DLC. But now the gates have opened to more recent video game characters having the chance to become playable fighters.

With this bit of information Sakurai also states that for the DLC fighters, Nintendo themselves picked which characters would become fighters, and Sakurai then decides if it can reasonably be done. Nothing major, but it is still interesting to get some inside info on how the roster is decided.

So go back and revise your predictions, as it seems like anyone is now possible.

If that's the case then I guess Edgelord from the new Fire Emblem game is almost a shoo-in.



Please no more fire emblem or pokemon characters.

Fuck yes Edelgard, as long as they keep her axe/magic fighting, she'll be super unique and cool to play. More FE is great.
No idea who else will be in, but I've already bought the pass because I'll give them a shot anyway.

As long as Sans or Steve don't get in. Fuck that shit.

At least it would be interesting if either one of them got in.

I don't get the appeal of a Fire Emblem character that we know next to nothing about.



Let's have a champion time!

True, compared to the intricate backstory and history of Squid kids and Piranha plant, this Fire Emblem character just looks like a weak choice for a newcomer. 



Too worthless to live, too scared to die.

I would say the opposite is more true now.



We know Bandana Dee is now next in line in Japanese popularity polls, he would have a unique moveset with it's spear, Kirby is one their top franchises + he's cute.

Everything is written in the sky for his entry !!

Alm/Celica, Sans, someone from Octopath Traveler, someone from Arms, Bomberman, Shadow the Hedgehog or Dr. Robotnik/Eggman.

And I'm calling it now: Waluigi will be added as paid dlc. And it will piss me many off.
