Sakurai To Reveal Final Smash Bros Ultimate Character October 5th

This Direct Was Too Packed It Seems

Smash Bros

Going into today’s Nintendo Direct, I think a lot of us expected to see the final DLC character for Super Smash Bros Ultimate revealed. After all, it has to be coming pretty soon and Nintendo had forty minutes to burn. It seems today’s announcements were just too packed though as they didn’t get to this one.

Luckily for fans waiting, they were able to take a few moments to at least let us know when the big news is coming. Game Director Masahiro Sakurai will host a special presentation October 5th, at 7:00 AM PT. Not only will the final character be revealed there, we’ll also get a chance to see them in action.

With this set to be the final presentation for Super Smash Bros Ultimate, which released in 2018, it feels like the end of an era. Still, we’ll be here to bring you the news as soon as it’s revealed. Until then, let’s all take a look back to the past and check out the game’s original reveal below.

He enjoys most genres but is always pulled back to classic RPG's, with his favorite games ever including Suikoden II, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and Phantasy Star IV. Don't worry though, he thinks new games are cool too, with more recent favorites like Hades, Rocket League, and Splatoon 2 stealing hundreds of hours of his life. When he isn't playing games he's often watching classic movies, catching a basketball game, or reading the first twenty pages of a book before getting busy and forgetting about it.
