Last week during the final Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Directly before the release of the game in December, director Masahiro Sakurai confirmed that a total of five DLC fighters will be made available and that the team will "work really hard" to develop this content. This announcement has undoubtedly provoked immediate speculation about the fighters that might be added to the list – with wild character requests that were triggered again in the direction of Nintendo.
In the latest news, the game director has now released a number of tweets in English to probably prevent the attack of fighting demands from the fans of the game. Sakurai revealed that the DLC line for Ultimate is already blocked. Unlike the ballot used to help select DLC for Super Smash Bros. Wii U and 3DS, this time Nintendo chose additional fighters. Here are the official Sakurai-san tweets:
So there you have – sending messages to Nintendo or Sakurai asking for specific Smash game fighters is no longer required. By saying this, it probably will not stop rumors about what exact characters will be released in the future.
What do you think about Sakurai's twitter posts? Are you glad to hear that Nintendo has already chosen the DLC fighters? Tell us in the comments.
