Super Smash Bros Ultimate Nintendo Direct DLC: Switch fans get great Fighter Pack news
Today’s Nintendo Direct will have plenty of game news for Switch owners hungry to learn about the next big expansions and projects.
Much of what will be shared will focus on 2021 games, which drops the scope of how much stuff could be revealed.
But the good news is that Challenger Pack 11 will likely be revealed as part of the showcase.
One of the final big pieces of DLC for Super Smash Bros Ultimate, the new Fighter Pack could include any number of characters from famous franchises.
Nintendo has never limited itself to any one franchise, with characters from the world of Minecraft, Final Fantasy and Tekken making the list.
And so there has been plenty of speculation over what could be revealed later today as part of the new Nintendo Direct.
Fans are hoping for an exciting third-person character to be involved, with the candidates including Master Chief, Crash Bandicoot and Phoenix Wright.
There has been little appetite shown for more Fire Emblem characters to be included but you never know when it comes to Nintendo.
Samus Hunter – a well-known Nintendo leaker account on Twitter – has suggested that there is a good chance of a third-party character being announced this week, telling one gamer online:
“I would say 80% chance, the chance of the final character being first-party are low. WarioWare, Dread and all the upcoming game will have dedicated Spirit Battles.
“Pokémon, Astral Chain, Paper Mario and other recent major Switch titles are all represented.”
For now, we have no idea who the last character will be but it looks like gamers won’t have long to wait.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate won’t be the only game featured during today’s presentation, with Splatoon 3 and Metroid Dread among the other games tipped to feature in the next Nintendo Direct presentation.
According to Nintendo insider Samus Hunter, the next Nintendo Direct will focus on games such as Metroid Dread, Smash Bros, Splatoon 3 and role-playing game Project Triangle Strategy.
Likewise, fans can expect to find out more about the Nintendo Switch OLED Model, which is coming soon.
Sadly, however, Nintendo is unlikely to showcase upcoming titles such as Breath of the Wild 2, which is tipped to instead feature at The Game Awards.
Metroid Dread seems almost certain to appear, especially with the game launching in just a few weeks time.
