The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC list appears to be final

Don't bother campaigning for your character to make the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster, because the list of DLC characters looks to be decided already.


The big marketing push for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is that "Everyone is Here." But more characters keep getting added to "everyone" by the day, with a Fighters Pass set to ensure that additional characters get added to the roster ever after the game releases. Those hoping to make a last-second campaign to get their characters into the game may be disappointed by a Tuesday Twitter post from series director Masahiro Sakurai.

The Fighters Pass lineup appears to be finalized, according to Sakurai's Twitter account. This likely means that the lineup itself is finalized with not much else beyond that, since Sakurai noted during the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct that the team would need to build these characters from scratch. There's no estimate on when any of these fighters will see the light of day or even when they'll be revealed.

In the meantime, there's one DLC character who's almost ready to go. That's Piranha Plant, who will not be a part of the Fighters Pass lineup. He'll be free to all Super Smash Bros. Ultimate owners who register their copy of the game before January 31 on the Smash Bros. website.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
