Super Smash Bros Ultimate fans will need to keep a close eye on The Game Awards 2020 this week, with Nintendo confirming the next DLC character will be announced at TGA 2020. Smash Bros Ultimate DLC fighter 8 will get announced at the Geoff Keighley-fronted event, which is kicking off in a matter of hours time. The Game Awards 2020 coverage begins at 11.30pm GMT on Thursday December 10 when a pre-show begins, with the main event starting at 12am GMT on Friday December 11.
And ahead of this year’s Game Awards ceremony Nintendo has confirmed the next Smash Bros Fighters Pass 2 character will get announced there.
The official Nintendo of Europe Twitter today posted: “A new #SmashBrosUltimate fighter will be revealed at #TheGameAwards tonight.”
This marks the second time a Smash Bros DLC character has been revealed at The Game Awards, with the first ever Smash Bros DLC character – Persona 5’s Joker – getting announced at the 2018 TGA event.
The upcoming Smash Bros reveal will mark the fourth SSBU character that has been announced in 2020.
So far Nintendo has revealed and released three DLC fighters for Nintendo Switch hit Super Smash Bros Ultimate – Fire Emblem’s Byleth, the final Fighters Pass 1 character, and Arms’ Min Min and Minecraft’s Steve for Fighters Pass 2.
It remains to be seen which character could be the next fighter joining Super Smash Bros Ultimate, but there are a number of rumours circulating at the moment.
Super Smash Bros: Min Min revealed as new fighter
One theory is that Geno from Super Mario RPG could finally, after much fan demand, be getting added to Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
While the other rumour circulating is that a Fortnite character could be heading to Smash Bros.
Other long-held Super Smash Bros rumours are that Kingdom Hearts’ Sora, Devil May Cry’s Dante, Ninja Gaiden’s Ryu Hayabusa, Doom’s Doomguy and Crash Bandicoot could be future additions to the fighter roster.
And, of course, those Waluigi rumours and demands are likely to never go away until Nintendo finally adds the hugely in-demand character.
So far, there have been two Fighters Pass 2 characters revealed and released – Min Min and Steve – with FP2 in total having six DLC fighters.
These new Smash Bros characters will all be revealed and released before the end of 2021.
And Fighters Pass 2 will be the final DLC season for Super Smash Bros Ultimate, with no more new characters heading to the Switch hit after that.
Masahiro Sakurai needs to have a bit of rest at some point, right?
Besides the inbound Smash announcement, Microsoft has teased that there will be “surprises” in store at TGA 2020, however they’ve said it won’t be on the same scale as last year’s Xbox Series X unveiling.
Setting expectations, Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg tweeted: “You will see us & our social handles promoting tune-in for @thegameawards tomorrow.
“We hope you support the industry & watch. While we have a couple moments in the show, I would dial expectations way down versus speculation I am seeing, especially how big we went last year!”
The Game Awards main event will last for around two and a half hours, with show host and event creator Keighley confirming there will be between 12 and 15 reveals of previously unannounced titles. This will range from big AAA titles to indie games, Keighley said.
