Smash Bros. Ultimate’s Next Fighter Will Be Its Last

“But finally, the next DLC fighter will be the last one. There won’t be any more after that,” Sakurai said in a pre-recorded video streamed on YouTube earlier today. “It’ll be a while before that announcement, but it’ll be available this year as planned, so please be patient.”

The final unannounced character would bring Smash Bros. Ultimate’s already-beefy roster up to a whopping 82 fighters. Whoever it ends up being, fans of every other possible gaming crossover, from Kingdom Hearts’ Sora to Halo’s Master Chief, will no doubt be disappointed. Hopefully it’s not another sword fighter.

The game’s first fighter pass added the likes of Persona 5's Joker, Dragon Quest XI’s Hero, Rare platformer duo Banjo & Kazooie, King of Fighters’ Terry Bogard, and Fire Emblem: Three Houses’ Byleth. The game’s second fighter pass added ARMS’ Min Min, Minecraft’s Steve, Final Fantasy VII’s Sephiroth, and Xenoblade Chronicles 2's Pyra and Mythra so far.

But even if Smash Bros. Ultimate’s roster is about to be capped for good, Nintendo has still been pretty creative about adding additional cameos via Mii fighter outfits.

The bigger question is whether Sakurai will stick around to work on whatever the next Smash Bros. game is, or retire from the series. “Now that I think about it, it’s been close to 10 years since Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS was in development,” he said during today’s video. “I’ve been working on this for a long time. You could call it my life’s work.”

Sakurai reflected on what leaving Smash Bros. might be like in a Famitsu column earlier this year titled “Everything Comes to an End.” Without laying out any definitive plans, he wrote in part about how much more time he’d have away from his notoriously grueling work schedule. “Eventually, I’ll get old, and there’s no way I can work forever.”

Since the release of the Nintendo 64, we have got an incredible fighting video game. Nintendo has been the top development studio when it comes to providing platformer fighters. There have been several installments to the beloved Super Smash Bros. franchise and while there are alternative platformer fighters out there, fans have continued to gravitate towards the iconic Nintendo IP. That’s especially true with the latest installment thanks to the amount of content that the developers have been adding into the game.

Super Smash Bros. has generally added quite a few guest fighters into the mix that are not necessarily attached to the Nintendo brand. That’s especially true with the latest installment, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate which added every fighter that was attached to the game franchise in the past. So not only was there an incredibly stacked roster available in the game as is, the studio wasn’t done with adding even more fighters into the mix. Over the past several years we’ve seen several iconic characters added into the game from a variety of game franchises.

Currently, the latest character installment is Kazuya from the iconic Tekken fighting video game franchise. We know that another DLC character is coming out but that’s going to be the last. This was reconfirmed recently by Masahiro Sakurai who was the director behind Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Recently, the director behind the game took to YouTube to highlight Kazuya joining the battle, in which the topic of the next and final character.

We don’t know just who the next character will be but it will apparently be revealed and released for players at some point this year. Who knows just how Nintendo will top this installment when the next iteration is ready for release. At the very least, it looks like this game will continue to be enjoyed for years to come despite the content finally ending out within 2021.
