If you play on Quickplay with nothing but Pokemon Balls and assist Trophies, you're a sick son of a bitch and I hate you personally.

It’s still early it seems, so nothing cool and comprehensive like Project M. Would you prefer Fortnite character skins over Snake?

I genuinely Hope it's another fire emblem just so I can watch "THE COMMUNITY" immolate itself with gasoline in the streets.
 
I can't wait for my kids to be old enough to both want to play Smash Bros (I'm there right now) and know how to visually parse it well enough to not run off a cliff at the earliest opportunity (may never be here).

Game needs some kid friendly levels where they can't accidentally walk off a ledge off the screen.

Who likes games of chance?

There are five more DLC fighters coming. If you are interested, you have until the announcement of the next fighter to submit your guesses in this form. I'll lock the form at that time. You can see and heckle others' responses in this spreadsheet.

When the fifth fighter is unveiled, I will award a prize to whoever guessed the most fighters. I have not yet decided what the prize will be. I have not even decided if it'll be any good.

Whatever characters end up getting added, we all can agree that I'm the TT poster with the highest chance of being included tbqhimo.

My picks:

Travis Touchdown
Shin Megami Tensei V protagonist
Dante
Geno
A character whose existence has not been disclosed as of September 22, 2020

My personal most-wanted character after Geno is Mike Jones, but after StarTropics didn't even rate a Spirit in the base game, I've got to let that one go.

My personal most-wanted character after Geno is Mike Jones, but after StarTropics didn't even merit a Spirit in the base game, I've got to let that one go.
I reluctantly did the same on my tally. Real shame. I don't think a single StarTropics reference has happened in Smash.

Dragaux (Ring Fit Adventure) --- We got the Wii Fit Trainer, so this feels like a lot less of a stretch.

Urbosa --- With the new Hyrule Warriors coming up I consider one of the champions to be an inevitability. We already have Falco, and I don't think Mipha or Daruk would be great fits for the game, so I think Urbosa is a lock.

Reimu --- Not gonna lie, part of me just wants a character who would break Terry's record of "most music for a DLC character", and she seems like the most likely one to do it. Also, considering the representation western indie characters have received, I feel like Touhou deserves a nod at the very least.

Doomguy --- Another part of me wants Doomguy and Reimu revealed in the same trailer for maximum aesthetic contrast. (Also, given the recent Zenimax acquisition by Microsoft, I think a Master Cheif skin or echo fighter is surprisingly likely at this point.)

RT-55J --- Total vanity pick (definitely didn't run out of ideas >_> ). I consider this highly unlikely, though if we get a Mega Man character that has a green skin with red highlights, I'll consider this a win tbqhimo (also unlikely).

I dunno, I feel like Daruk would be a fun heavyweight fighter, at least. I could totally see an Up+B where he shoots himself out of a cannon, just like his great grandson (or whatever Yunobo is supposed to be) . Not that I would turn my nose up at Urbosa! Oh no no no
 

MetManMas

DNM-123
(He, him)
Pom Pom as a rep for the 3D Land/World branch of Mario (Boom Boom can join her as a D.K. echo or something)

Rillaboom for Pokémon Gen 8 (C'mon final form grass starter!)

Ryu Hayabusa (I'm still bewildered there's no proper Koei Tecmo rep, and with the rumors of a nuTrilogy remaster, maybe...)

Dixie Kong

Someone or something for Animal Crossing: New Horizons (I dunno, Flick? C.J.? Maybe a Mii Fighter-y thing with some different animal villager species? Surprise me, Nintendo!)

OH I GUESS WE'RE POSTING OUR PICS?

DOOMGUY FOR SURE
UHHHH

You can post your predictions if you want. You can also post lists of five characters for a reason other than predicting that they'll be added. You can post whatever you want in life.

In order to be eligible for the prize, however, you need to enter them in that form I linked. You can see what others have predicted by viewing the spreadsheet linked in the same post.

The next #SmashBrosUltimate DLC fighter will be revealed tomorrow at 7am PT! The video presentation will be roughly 3 minutes long, followed by a brief message from Director Masahiro Sakurai. Tune-in here tomorrow:

Probably not going live any time soon if its only a three minute presentation. Probably just the teaser trailer and Sakurai asking everyone to please be patient.

Nevertheless, I’m hype.
