Super Smash Bros Ultimate Boss Asks Players Please Not To Request Fighters

"The new additions have already been decided."


The fifth and final DLC character included in Super Smash Bros Ultimate's Fighter Pass, Byleth, has been announced, and fans are already wondering who will come to the second Fighter Pass. During the Byleth announcement, Smash Bros director Masahiro Sakurai confirmed that six more fighters will join the game by December 2021. Sakurai, who receives a lot of requests, wanted to make something clear--the six fighters have already been chosen, and there's nothing to be gained from sending him requests.

"Of course, like last time, the contents will remain unknown for now," Sakurai said, and apologized for asking fans to buy the Fighter Pass without knowing who was coming to the game. Sakurai addressed the inevitable tweets he will receive about the next lot of fighters, asking for a reprieve.

"The new additions have already been decided," Sakurai said. "Even if I receive many requests regarding potential candidates on Twitter, I'm afraid it would be very hard to consider them. But I still hope you'll look forward to it."

With this in mind, we can start speculating over who the new fighters will be. Rayman? Crash Bandicoot? Steve from Minecraft? Master Chief?

Fighters Pass Volume 2 will be available to purchase on January 28, although we won't know the first new fighter it will add until later.
