Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the highest selling fighting game of all time. As a franchise, Super Smash Bros. is also the number one fighting game series of all time. In the year since its release, this Nintendo mainstay has remained relevant to the gaming news cycle with a series of DLC fighters joining the battle through the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass. \n \nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=yK3VltKv3JI&t=10s \n \nThere are five fighters included with the pass. Four of them have already been revealed and released. \n \nThey are: \n \n \tJoker from the Persona Series \n \tHero from Dragon Quest \n \tBanjo & Kazooie from Banjo Kazooie \n \tTerry Bogard from Fatal Fury \n \nAll eyes have been on Nintendo in recent weeks waiting for news of who the fifth and final fighter will be. \n \nThat information might be forthcoming, as Nintendo has announced that it will hold a Nintendo Direct event in January. This comes after the game's official website noted that players would have the fifth and final Fighters Pass DLC character by the end of February. \n \nGiven Nintendo's penchant for major announcements at Direct events, it feels like all but a lock that they company will be unveiling the fighter at the event this month. After all, it was at the Nintendo Direct event in September that Fatal Fury's Terry Bogard was announced for the game. \n \nWith such huge news on the horizon, players all over the world are venturing their guesses as to the identity of the mystery character. \n \nOne fan-favorite option seems to be Waluigi from the Mario franchise. It would make sense for Nintendo to close the Fighters Pass out with one of their own first-party characters. With Waluigi being one of the only major players from the Mario games not to appear as a playable character, the writing might be on the wall. \n \nRumors of this addition gained traction online when Brian David Gilbert, a video producer, released a video campaigning for Waluigi to have his own dedicated game. This video actually garnered a response from Nintendo America CEO Doug Bowser (who has the best name ever) who posted a clapping emoji and a purple heart. \n \nhttps:\/\/twitter.com\/thetruebowser\/status\/1209609073924038656?s=19 \n \nThis led many to believe that there would be more Waluigi content sooner rather than later. \n \nOther majorly rumored characters include: \n \n \tCrash Bandicoot \n \tSteve from Minecraft \n \tMaster Chief from Halo \n \tRyu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden \n \tTracer from Overwatch \n \tDante from Devil May Cry \n \tSora from Kingdom Hearts \n \nRegardless of who the fighter ends up being, Nintendo has found a recipe for success with the Super Smash Bros. franchise. Not only does Super Smash Bros. Ultimate have the largest fighter roster of any Smash Bros game, it was the second most downloaded game on the Nintendo Switch in 2019.
