• The “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” game director said there'll be six more fighters to be added by Dec. 2021
  • Fans continue to speculate who these fighters will be
  • The game devs have already decided who these characters are

Shortly after announcing the fifth and last DLC fighter to be included in the “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” Fighter's Pass, game director Masahiro Sakurai also announced that by December next year, six new characters have already joined the roster by way of a new Fighter's Pass.

Fans, upon hearing the announcement, started speculating as to who the new characters could be. Some of these were already rumored to come with the first Fighter's Pass but none of them did. Will they join the Nintendo brawler this time?

Here's a quick look at some of the characters that fans continue to wish would be included in the “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” roster.


Dante, the main protagonist of the “Devil May Cry” series, is a favorite among many “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” fans. Nintendo Life noted that since his game series have already been rereleased on the Nintendo Switch, it simply makes sense that he could be included in the game.

Dante's addition to the Nintendo brawler, however, will mean that another sword-wielder will be added to the game. Byleth, who was recently announced, is already a sword-wielder added to a number of sword-wielders already present in the game. Will Dante make it?

Viewtiful Joe

This accomplished fighter, known for his crazy style, will fit right in with “Smash's” crew. And since it has been some time since he has been included in any game, it simply makes justice for him to be included in Nintendo's popular brawler.

Not a lot of people will like Viewtiful Joe though, and that's not because he's not one to like. The fact that he hasn't been in a game means that he doesn't have as many fans as he did before. Perhaps his inclusion will change that.

Leon Kennedy

Leon, famous for his fight for survival in the “Resident Evil” series of games, most notably “Resident Evil 2 Remake,” is a popular choice among fans. Some might think that his background might be too gruesome for the family-friendly brawler, but he's not the only one with a violent background in the game anyway.

Leon's inclusion in “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” will actually be a good break for him. He won't have to fight zombies or run away from Mr. X in Nintendo's game, unless the game devs include him too.

These three are but some of the characters that many players want. Fans won't be able to hope based on their requests, though, because Sakurai said the new additions have already been decided, and it will be difficult for him to consider fan requests at this point.
