New Super Smash Bros DLC Fighter to be Revealed 1/16

It's time once again, Nintendo fans! The company will reveal the next Super Smash Bros Ultimate DLC fighter in a livestream presentation featuring series creator Masahiro Sakurai on January 16th, just two days from now. Place your final bets now, who's it gonna be?

New Super Smash Bros DLC Fighter to be Revealed 1/16

Revealed via tweet from the official Nintendo Versus Twitter account, the next DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be revealed on January 16th at 6:00 a.m. PST. Said tweet also included that the livestream would provide an in-depth look at the fighter’s mechanics, hinting at its availability being soon.

Spanning roughly 35 minutes in length, it’s approximately 15 minutes less time than the livestream featuring Terry Bogard last November. We may not be getting a history lesson this time around, perhaps because it’s a well-known character? There have been heavy rumors that Doomslayer could be a possibility ever since allegedly leaked screenshots hit the internet featuring a Mii fighter with Doom-inspired headwear. This will mark the first time that Nintendo has revealed a character via individual livestream, instead of with event pieces.

This new character will mark the fifth and final fighter in the original Fighters Pass pack that the company described back in late 2018. Since then, however, Nintendo has promised that even more DLC fighters are on the way, so who knows how many more may come? As historically guarded as they’ve been, it’s no doubt that whomever comes prepared, it will be a great shock.
