Smash Bros Ultimate fans may have found out who will be the Fighters Pass 5 DLC character ahead of The Game Awards 2019. Nintendo Switch gamers are waiting to find out who will be the fifth and final DLC character for the first Smash Bros Ultimate Fighters Pass. The Smash Bros Ultimate Fighters Pass 5 DLC character is set to be released by February 2020, with fans hoping for a reveal by the end of this year.
It’s rumoured that Nintendo could use the upcoming Game Awards 2019 to reveal the next Smash Bros Ultimate DLC character.
The first character for the Smash Bros Fighters Pass – Joker from Persona 5 – was revealed at the Game Awards event last year.
Which has sparked speculation that Nintendo could once again use the Game Awards to reveal their next Smash Bros DLC character.
And ahead of The Game Awards 2019 the identity of the Smash Bros Ultimate Fighters Pass 5 DLC character may have leaked.

As reported on in a post by Game Rant, an alleged leak on 4chan may have revealed Phoenix Wright as the next Smash Bros DLC character.
This remains to be seen, but Phoenix Wright does tie into what other leakers have been saying.
Leakers Sabi and Vergeben have been ruling out a number of the rumours swirling around who could be the next Smash Bros character.
And Phoenix Wright is not one of the characters Sabi or Vergeben have ruled out.
The biggest rumoured characters that Sabi has ruled out are Ninja Gaiden’s Ryu Hayabusa, Crash Bandicoot and Sora from Kingdom Hearts.
Sabi recently tweeted: “If what I heard is correct, FP5 is not….Ryu Hayabusa, Crash Bandicoot, Doomguy, Geno, Dante, Lloyd/ A Tales of Rep, Sora, Falcom reps and Nippon Ichi reps altogether (specifically backed Verge on this).
“If I forgot any I tweeted, please remind me and I’ll re-clarify.”

Sabi later added: “I’ve only deconfirmed 7 or so specific characters, and just clarified what I heard isn’t related to two very niche developers.
“That’s all. I started deconfirming first, and I don’t know enough to back his posts.
“I’m currently trying to ask a source if Verge is wrong about stuff.”
Fellow leaker Vergeben has also discounted a number of possible characters for Fighters Pass character 5.
Vergeben also ruled out Crash Bandicoot being the next DLC character for Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
They additionally discounted the possibility of Tracer from Overwatch being the final DLC character for the current Fighters Pass.
Other rumours they ruled out were Kat from Gravity Rush, Reimu Hakurei from Touhou Project, Puyo Puyo’s Arle Nadja and Sakura from Sakura Wars.
It remains to be seen who will be the next Smash Bros DLC character, but fans hopefully won’t have to wait too long for confirmation.
The Game Awards 2019 is kicking off soon, which is where the Fighters Pass 5 character could get revealed.
Fans in the UK will be able to tune in to all the action from the Game Awards at 1.30am on Friday December 13.
