Smash Bros. Ultimate Will Get Another Six DLC Fighters
Fighters Pass Vol. 2 is coming.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's fifth and final Fighters Pass character is Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses, but there's still more DLC on the horizon. During today's big reveal stream, game director Masahiro Sakurai reconfirmed that another wave of DLC fighters are already in development for the title.
Six more characters in total will be released for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Sakurai revealed--one more than the first wave of DLC. All six will arrive by December 31, 2021. According to Sakurai, the fighters have already been chosen, although he hasn't shared any hints as to who they'll be.
The new DLC characters will be bundled in Fighters Pass Vol. 2. The pass will cost $30 USD and be available for pre-purchase beginning January 28--the same day that Byleth and the next wave of Mii Fighter costumes arrive. If you do purchase the Fighters Pass, you'll get a bonus Mii Fighter costume based on the Ancient Soldier gear from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
Releasing alongside Byleth is a new stage: Garreg Mach Monastery. Like other DLC fighters, Byleth also comes with an assortment of new Spirits to unlock, as well as 11 additional music tracks taken from Fire Emblem: Three Houses. If you don't have the first Fighters Pass, you can pick up the Byleth challenger pack individually for $6 USD.
The Mii Fighter costumes, meanwhile, each run for $0.75. Among the new additions is a Mii Gunner costume based on Cuphead, which also comes with a music track taken from that game. The other new Mii Fighter costumes include Assassin's Creed's Altair (Swordfighter), a Rabbids hat, and Mega Man X and MegaMan.exe (Gunner).
