Smash Ultimate is getting a new Direct this week, which will reveal the new DLC character


January 16 at 6AM PT

Is this it? Will we finally confirm who the final DLC character for the first Fighter's Pass is?

After numerous assumptions of Directs and award show reveals, Nintendo has pulled back the curtain on the latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct. It's happening this week on January 16 at 6AM PT. Nintendo 100% confirms that it is an "in-depth look at an upcoming DLC fighter," clocking in at 35 minutes in length.

I'll spare you the whole thing of where we guess at length what the character might be: it could be anyone. Recent favorites include Steve from Minecraft and Halo's Master Chief. Past memes include The Grinch and Shrek. My take? Dante seems highly likely. Well, I guess we speculated anyway! Either way we'll be there covering it live, and you can find the stream right here

As a reminder, we've gotten Joker, [Dragon Quest] Hero, Banjo and Kazooie and Terry Bogard so far. Those characters comprise four parts of the five-strong Fighter [Season] Pass.
