Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s next DLC character will be revealed on June 22nd, Nintendo announced this week. The character will be presented by game director Masahiro Sakurai just as the other DLC characters have been announced and will have its moves and design featured in about 35 minutes worth of gameplay footage and commentary. Nintendo also clarified that the livestream for the next DLC character will only pertain to that character and no other fighter reveals, so anyone already hoping to see more than just one DLC reveal can go ahead and temper their expectations before the big event.
That doesn’t mean players are without their suspicions though. Ever since the ARMS addition was announced months ago, players have been debating which character from the game they think should be added. Twintelle, Spring Man, and Min Min have been popular suggestions, but there’s been no indication of who it’ll be through leaks.
Waluigi. Spring Man is currently both a Spirit and Assist Trophy in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate which historically has meant the character wouldn’t be an actual playable fighter, but Nintendo put forward the blue-haired poster boy of ARMS as a possibility. If he can ascend from secondary status to actually be playable, so can others like Waluigi.
