    So I wasn’t dreaming when I saw Sakurai on youtube.

      It’s going to be DooM Slayer. πŸ˜‚

      Jokes apart it can be anyone at this point.

          Hoping for Crash

          1. Me too. But the Devil May Cry Twitter has stated we should pay attention for the 16th. I got a bad feeling about this. I hope it’s just coincidences or that they’re just capitalising on the Smash hype.

            1. π‘΅π’Šπ’π’•π’†π’π’…π’ π‘­π’Šπ’“π’”π’• 𝑢𝒓𝒅𝒆𝒓 𝑹𝒆𝒂𝒗𝒆𝒓 says:

              It can be Dante. It’s possible.

                1. π‘΅π’Šπ’π’•π’†π’π’…π’ π‘­π’Šπ’“π’”π’• 𝑢𝒓𝒅𝒆𝒓 𝑹𝒆𝒂𝒗𝒆𝒓 says:

                  I liked it too. I’m not mad about it.

    2. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s not Dante BUT they end the direct by announcing him as the next DLC fighter they are working on.

      Hmm… Actually… I saw a rumor that Monster Hunter is DLC 5. Maybe Dante will just get a mii costume with his Capcom buddy (Monster Hunter)

  2. All is well. The 16th also happens to be one of the days we get Devil may cry news. Dante (or any Capcom character for that matter) would be hype, but it might just be a coincidence. Either way, I’m glad we finally get to find out who the next DLC fighter is.

  3. It’s looking more and more likely to be Dante, but who knows. Maybe it could be Dr. Kawashima

    1. I mean I can’t really say anything negative about this comment, where is the content for everyone, and not just for one franchise, nintendo is really starting to make themselves look like they gonna have slow releases until spring comes around, but it be nice to at least see a general direct (will probably get it next week) I love smash bros but the fighter pass has been meh to me (too many third party characters) I like hero and joker tho, hopefully they try to do a blend of first party and third party characters for the next pass

  4. π‘΅π’Šπ’π’•π’†π’π’…π’ π‘­π’Šπ’“π’”π’• 𝑢𝒓𝒅𝒆𝒓 𝑹𝒆𝒂𝒗𝒆𝒓 says:

    Also why Sakurai is doing the dab in the thumbnail?

    1. Why is it whenever there is hope for a Capcom rep, a Sega character has to tone it out? Sure the ratio between Capcom reps and Sega reps are currently even in Smash 4 and Ultimate (if you count Bayonetta and Joker as Sega reps), but Brawl had one Sega rep and ZERO Capcom reps. And don’t get me started on all the other Nintendo and Sega video game collaborations without Capcom. I don’t want any more Sega reps in Smash bros unless it’s Akira Yuki.

  5. It’s got to be Captain Rainbow!
    Actually, I’m still hopeful for Shantae. We need a good rep for indie gaming.
    And no, Minecraft Steve would not be a good rep.
    Actually, being the final fighters pass character, a Master Hand style of character would be fitting.

  6. Why do people get so excited over more and more characters being added to Smash Ultimate? I swear, that’s all this game is is a smorgasbord of characters. And not much else of interest. I’d SO much rather hear some Pikmin 4 news, or maybe an announcement of a new Mario Baseball or Mario Golf game (two neglected series).
