In the lead-up to the present week’s Nintendo Direct, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fans were undoubtedly wondering if we’d get the reveal of the ultimate DLC character for the sport. That reveal ultimately didn’t happen, but Nintendo threw Ultimate players a bone by confirming when the fighter will be announced. Yes, Nintendo is guilty of creating an announcement here, but we’re guessing Ultimate players are just happy to possess a reveal date.
During last night’s Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced that the ultimate Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC fighter would be revealed during a replacement Sakurai Presents showcase on Tuesday, October 5th at 7 AM PDT/10 AM EDT. Since this is often the ultimate DLC character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, this may even be the ultimate Sakurai Presents – a minimum of as far as Ultimate cares.
As is typically the case during these presentations, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai won’t only be revealing the new fighter, but he’ll even be showcasing the fighter’s kit. In other words, this isn’t getting to be a fast reveal but rather a lengthy deep dive into the character’s capabilities.
Originally, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC was alleged to end with the discharge of the 5th DLC fighter. However, Nintendo and Sora Ltd. then decided to supply another Fighters Pass with six more DLC characters, bringing the entire DLC fighters up to 11.
One thing to notice is that this Sakurai Presents will premiere on an equivalent day that Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl launches. Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl is shaping up to be one of the most important challenges to Smash’s crown in recent memory, as it’ll offer features Smash doesn’t like rollback netcode on supported platforms. Therefore, it seems Nintendo is playing a touch of hardball by scheduling this Sakurai Presents for an equivalent day that Nickelodeon All-Star Brawl comes out. We’ll allow you to know what Sakurai reveals during a few weeks, so check back with ITechBrand on October 5th for more.
