Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Is Adding Cuphead As A Mii Fighter Costume
Cuphead joins the brawl--sort of.
Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses is the next DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but that's not the only new addition coming to the game this month. During the Smash DLC reveal stream, game director Masahiro Sakurai showcased another wave of Mii Fighter costumes, and there are some surprising choices, including Cuphead.
Like the Sans costume that released alongside Banjo and Kazooie last September, the Cuphead costume is for Mii Gunners and looks like the actual character it's based on. The costume also comes with its own music track: Floral Fury.
In addition to Cuphead, the next wave of Mii Fighter costumes includes Assassin's Creed's Altair (Swordfighter), a Rabbids hat, and Mega Man X and MegaMan.exe (Gunner). You can take a look at the new costumes below.
The next wave of Mii Fighter costumes launches on January 28, the same day that the Byleth character pack arrives. Each costume can be purchased for $0.75 USD. The Byleth pack, meanwhile, is included as part of Smash's $25 Fighters Pass and comes with a new stage--Garreg Mach Monastery--and 11 tracks taken from Fire Emblem: Three Houses. If you don't have the Fighters Pass, you can also pick up the Byleth character pack individually for $6 USD.
While Byleth is the fifth and final Fighters Pass character, there's still more DLC on the way. During the stream, Sakurai confirmed that six additional fighters are in development for the game. Sakurai says all six have already been chosen, but hasn't dropped any hints as to who they'll be. All six of the characters will be included as part of the Fighters Pass Vol. 2. You can pre-purchase the pass starting January 28, and if you do pick it up, you'll get a bonus Mii Fighter costume based on the Ancient Armor from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
