While the recent Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct indirectly hinted that the Fighter picks for DLC were already decided, Sakurai has now come out directly to confirm that Ultimate’s five DLC character lineup has already been decided.
In a set of tweets today, he wrote:
“Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s DLC line-up is now complete. This time the selection was made entirely by Nintendo. I decide if we can create a fighter based on their selection, then come up with the plan.
It’s great to dream about your favorite character joining the battle and I appreciate your passion, but please try to stay on topic when replying to tweets and refrain from flooding us, and other users, with requests when we’re not specifically asking for feedback. Thank you!”
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launches for Nintendo Switch on December 7, 2018.
