New Smash Bros. DLC fighter reveal is this week – is it Crash Bandicoot?

Nintendo is set to reveal the next DLC addition to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate but will it be Crash Bandicoot or someone else?

The second of the six extra characters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighter Pass Vol. 2 will be revealed on Thursday, 1 October at 3pm BST.

Nintendo has given no clue as to who it will be, but Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai will be on hand to give a brief explanation after the three-minute-long reveal video.

The first of the Vol. 2 characters was Min Min from ARMS, who was added to the game back in June, when Sakurai warned that work on the DLC characters had been slowed down by the coronavirus.

Although there have been no leaks as to who the next character might be the reveal will be only a day before the release of Crash Bandicoot 4, who has often been rumoured for an appearance and is currently the odds-on favourite amongst fans.

The only problem with that theory is that Crash Bandicoot 4 is only announced for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, although Crash has appeared on Nintendo formats before.

Another rumoured possibility is Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden, which is rumoured to be getting a remaster trilogy soon. And while only a few of the modern games have appeared on Nintendo formats the original NES games are still fondly remembered classics in America and Japan.

Beyond that though it’s anyone’s guess, with more pokémon being a strong possibility, as well as any other Nintendo mainstay that hasn’t appeared yet, from Waluigi to Birdo.

But just as long as it’s not another Fire Emblem character that’ll be good enough for many.
