    With Super Smash Bros. Ultimate launching in a month's time, the hype is reaching its peak. In the last Nintendo Direct, Game Director Masahiro Sakurai announced that five DLC characters will be released, each costing $5.99. Today, it was announced on his Twitter account that the five upcoming characters have already been picked by Nintendo, with Sakurai himself having the final say. This was followed up by another post asking fans to stay on-topic when replying to his tweets, possibly in a bid to avoid the ongoing cry of Waluigi fans.


    So, who do you want to see join the battle in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC? Are you holding onto hope that Waluigi can still make it in, or are you looking forward to more ambitious fighters?​

    Definitely much more out their fighters, like baby Kong, for example.

    Is this safe to assume 3rd party characters are out then? Not to sound like half the internet, but I'd still love to see Banjo Kazooie, since I know Muddy Mole is too niche.

    I don't think so. I think the wording is slightly confusing, but it seems more like they're just eliminating any speculation around any sort of ballot.

    They didn't say that the characters were going to be Nintendo characters, they just said that they're making the decision internally instead of having the fans vote, like they did last time. Sonic and Snake both got into Brawl with only internal decisions, too.

    Nintendo chose? Aww, there goes any sliver of hope that I had for Goemon :lol:

    Anyway, I have a weird dual wish:
    1) That Waluigi doesn't become a DLC character becuase "eugh, memes".

    2) That Waluigi is a DLC character so everyone can shut the EFF up about it. :P

    I don't get why everyone is absolutely rabid about Geno and Banjo, but that's probably just me. Hopefully we get some interesting characters out of this though.

    I actually don't care for either of them, but I really hope that they do get in. I was sceptical about Ridley and K.Rool too, but seeing the community go wild over them has made me really want the last two holy grails here, too.

    What is that with all this Waluigi fans? To me he appears like a very greasy smudgy criminal. He seems like a really bad influence for Wario. While Wario seems to have many bad character traits, Waluigi just seems to be a true criminal. Why are there so many fans of this character out there? Is it just that people hope for another Nintendo character getting a own unique game series with new game mechanics like e.g. Luigi and Wario got? It's such strange.

    As much as I like both, I question that myself.
    More specifically regarding Geno, why him over the better character in Mallow?

    He is a Assist Trophy, but not a playable character. Him beeing already a Assist Trophy makes it very very unlikely that he will appear as playable DLC figher in this entry of the series. Maybe on the next console :)

    If they add any Square characters, they're going to pick one with a game that is coming to the Switch. So, it'll probably be Sephiroth. The whole heroes v villains theme, and because FF7 is coming to Switch, and gotta shill for it, to get more sales!

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Here would be my list...

    1. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles(could do all four with echo's)
    2. Batman
    3. Double Dragons(put that echo junk to work again)
    4. Heracross(he's the best)
    5. R2-D2

    That's my dream adds. I think for sure we will get another Street Fighter my guess would be Chun Li. Sephiroth, Waluigi, I could see them doing another Pokemon, no telling what one it will be(hoping Heracross). Nothing else is really sticking out to me other then those, so I will guess an extra street fighter, maybe Guile???

    Ooh boy. Bet we're getting a Three Houses rep, for obligatory Fire Emblem advertising.

    I wish they would include some Dragon Ball characters to the roster. Vegeta in Smash would be dope.

    How can you have dlc characters chosen before the game even launches? That's just douchebag to consumers.

    "Hey, let's take the characters the REALLY want, and lock them behind a day-1 DLC paywall. They're so dumb that they'd pay for it too!"

    I'd love to see Rabbid Mario/Luigi/Peach (one of them), Rex (Xenoblade 2), Jack Frost/Pyro Jack(SMT), KOS-MOS, and maybe someone left field like...Tracer, from Overwatch?

    Maybe Proto Man will be a seprate fighter. He just needs the spotlight he deserves. He didn't show up ONCE in Mega Man 11 at all.

    Would love to see Skull Kid from Majora's Mask

    And while we're throwing out absolutely silly ideas, I'd love to see Resetti
