    Are you ready for the reveal of the latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC character? Of course you are! After teasing a livestream two days ago, it's nearly time to see what Sakurai has up his sleeve, and who will be the next addition to the Smash roster. Will it be Dante from the Devil May Cry series? Will we ever get Rayman? There's only one way to find out, and that's by watching the steam live as it airs, or checking out the recap thread right here! The video will begin at 15:00 CET, or 6 am PT.

    And so, it begins. "Hardly anyone knows what we're revealing today, even Nintendo staff", teases Sakurai at the opening of the video.

    It's Fire Emblem! Male Byleth is in. At the end, we see female Byleth, using Claude, Dimitri, and Edelgard's weapons. It's not just another sword user (TM)

    Releases January 29th.

    We now get a briefing on what Fire Emblem is. It's all about Fire Emblem. He's just talking about Fire Emblem's history.

    Byleth uses the Sword of the Creator, which can extend, as well as borrowing the axe, lance, and bow from the other lords from Three Houses.

    Garreg Mach Monastery is the included stage for the character. It'll cycle throughout all the different locations from the game, such as the marketplace. Certain Three Houses characters will be in the background, like Dimitri and Ingrid.

    The Spirit Board will have new 3H characters.

    Music from the game will be added, along with remixes.

    Mii fighter costumes for Altair (Assassin's Creed), Rabbids, Mega Man X, Mega Man.EXE, and Cuphead headed to the game.

    More fighters are planned! SIX new fighters are planned to be added in the future!

    If you buy the Fighter's Pass 2, you get a bonus Mii costume modeled after an armor from Breath of the WIld.

    To close out the video, we get a trailer showing off Abyss and the Ashen Wolves, a fourth house in Fire Emblem Three Houses, with new characters to teach. Cinder Shadows launches Feb 13 as DLC for FE: 3H.

    I believe they said the new character would be revealed near the end of the livestream, which means a decent chunk of this 35 minutes will probably be about new updates and features, probably some broad outlines of fighter pass 2. As excited as I always am to see the new character, that’s more exciting to me. (After all, they already put in Banjo-Kazooie and I’m reasonably sure it won’t be Geno so I don’t think there’s any character left that will do much for me personally.)

    Please no more Fire Emblem characters. I understand There Houses was very popular though.

    Gimme someone from Advance Wars if we're going SRPG route.

    People before the Direct: He's holding up three fingers, that means Three Houses!

    Sakurai: 17 in binary!

    Something similar to that exists. Fire Emblem Warrios. It's not a fighting game but hey wouldn't it be better if Nintendo put more Fire Emblem characters in that game instead? Yeah, i think so.

    You have literally millions of potential characters at your disposal
    Dante (from the Devil May Cry series), Hat Kid, Steve, Sora, literally fucking lots of fan-favorites
    and you waste a slot on yet another anime-lookin FE rep when literally nobody wanted another FE rep
    and he sells it to us knowing people will buy it
    is this how Sakurai gets his laughs
