Smash Bros Ultimate might get new characters according to leak


By Aron Gerencser August 4 2021

As the second and final Smash Bros Ultimate Figther Pass is wrapping up, leaks point to surprise "final" characters dropping after the fact.

These leaks come from a post that was published anonymously on 4Chan earlier this year, which have now came back into the fandom discourse as the Fighter Pass Vol. 2 is nearing its end.

Director Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed that no new characters will be added after the Pass ends, thus torpedoing this leak almost entirely.

According to the leak Nintendo will release three other fighters as final characters for the game before wrapping up Ultimate.

This trio of last characters would include someone from the Legend of Zelda series, a non-action game Capcom character and Waluigi.

Fans have long wished for and predicted the eventual addition of Phoenix Wright to Smash Bros, which would line up well with the leak naming a Capcom character coming from a non-action game.

The Super Smash Bros Ultimate Fighter Pass Vol. 2 challenger packs will all be out by the 21st of December, 2021.
