challenger pack 7 Smash Ultimate new fighter

Nintendo wasn’t messing around when they named this fighter Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. With every past character returning, plus a host of newcomers, it’s a packed roster! On top of that, Sakurai and his team have steadily been releasing more characters and stages as DLC. It’s been a while since the last reveal, but that changes today! Challenger Pack 7, along with the latest fighter, will be unveiled today during a special presentation.

As usual, we’re livestreaming the Smash Ultimate event right here at Nintendo Enthusiast, and we’ll be covering all the exciting news as it breaks. The fun all kicks off at 7:00 am Pacific / 10 am Eastern. That’s 3:00 pm for our readers in the UK. You can catch the unveiling of Challenger Pack 7  by clicking the stream below!

So what will Challenger Pack 7 include? As usual, there are tons of rumors ranging from Overwatch‘s Tracer to Crash Bandicoot. I’d personally love to see Paper Mario added to the roster, and the timing is pretty fitting since Origami King is still fresh in our minds. Other fan-favorite requests include Geno, Waluigi, and Phoenix Wright. I also wouldn’t mind seeing more indie representation, with characters like Shovel Knight‘s protagonist or Trace from Axiom Verge. Hey, I can dream. In Smash Ultimate, anything is possible!
