Smash Bros. Ultimate's Next DLC Character Is Being Revealed Tomorrow

Nintendo is revealing the next DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate this week. The reveal will come by way of a short video presentation that is airing tomorrow, October 1, at 7 AM PT / 10 AM ET.

According to Nintendo, the presentation will only run approximately three minutes long, and it will be followed by a “brief message” from game director Masahiro Sakurai, so it appears we won’t get our usual deep-dive look at the new fighter just yet.

The video will air on Nintendo’s YouTube and Twitch channels. You can also bookmark this page and tune in right here on GameSpot when the presentation begins to watch it below.


This will mark the second DLC fighter to arrive from Smash Bros. Ultimate’s Fighters Pass Vol. 2. The first, Min Min from Arms, was added to the game back in June. The Fighters Pass Vol. 2 will add six new characters in total to the game, so at least four more are still slated to follow after tomorrow’s new fighter. The Fighters Pass Vol. 2 costs $30 USD.

Smash Bros. Ultimate’s most recent update arrived back in August, and it added a free new stage for all players: Small Battlefield. As its name says, this is a smaller version of the classic Battlefield stage, making for a much tighter arena. You can also play any music track from other stages on the level.

Nintendo has held numerous other video presentations recently. Earlier this month, the company aired a Direct presentation dedicated to Mario’s 35th anniversary. That was followed by another Nintendo Direct Mini partner showcase, wherein Nintendo and Capcom unveiled two new Monster Hunter games for Switch: Monster Hunter Rise and Monster Hunter Stories 2. Most recently, there was a Pokemon presentation that revealed more details about Sword and Shield’s next DLC expansion, The Crown Tundra.
