The fated day has finally arrived, and we’re all on the edge of our seats! Today, Smash creator and director Masahiro Sakurai will officially reveal the final DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The last Sakurai Presents (at least for Ultimate) will air this morning at 7:00 am Pacific / 10:00 am Eastern. The live stream is expected to last approximately 40 minutes. Sakurai encourages you to “let your imagination run wild” in guessing who the final fighter will be, and he’s also hoping that even non-Smash players will tune in.

Smash Ultimate’s final DLC fighter
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate lives up to its name with a massive roster of characters and stages that just kept growing for years. At launch, it included all fighters from past games, and since then Sakurai and his team have added tons of DLC fighters. I can still hardly believe characters like Banjo & Kazooie, Steve & Alex from Minecraft, and Sephiroth are actually part of the Smash roster. It’s been a wild ride, and I’m eager to see how it all ends.
Whoever the final Smash Ultimate DLC fighter turns out to be, we’re grateful to Sakurai and the rest of the team for everything they’ve put into the game all these years. Smash is one of Nintendo‘s greatest achievements, and Ultimate is a celebration of gaming history like none other. Now sit back, grab some popcorn, and enjoy the show!
