Sakurai to reveal fifth & final fighter in Fighter’s Pass
Nintendo revealed that their next digital presentation/Direct will be Super Smash Bros Ultimate focused. The company announced the presentation today, noting that the game’s Producer, Masahiro Sakurai, will debut a new fighter. This marks the sixth DLC fighter and fulfills the Fighter’s Pass, which was announced back in 2018 when the game released — not including the Piranha Plant.
While there have been supposed leaks over the last year, there hasn’t been a solid hint as to who this fighter could be. This time, fans are firmly in the dark, which means hype levels could be at an all-time high for the reveal.
It all takes place this Thursday, January 16, at 6 AM PST/9AM EST, on Nintendo’s YouTube page.
