Smash Ultimate’s DLC roster has been finalized

All choices were made by Nintendo

We pretty much knew Smash Bros. Ultimate was going to have DLC, but the last Nintendo Direct outright confirmed that five new fighters will be coming to the game. While Nintendo isn’t talking who has been selected, director Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed on Twitter that the additional fighters have already been chosen.

Instead of hosting a fighter poll like with Smash For Wii U and 3DS, the process was all done by Nintendo this time. As Sakurai writes, “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.” I suppose that will cut down on the number of votes for Waluigi and Isaac.

The question of which fighter may have an answer, but I doubt work has even begun on any of them. I honestly don’t care who else is added, because I’m still blown away at the amount of content Ultimate will have at launch. If anything, I’m hoping for more offbeat characters like Piranha Plant instead of yet another sword user.
