The platform holder has recently uploaded a holding page for the fourth DLC character on its website, including a copyright notice for SNK.
SNK is best known for its cult fighting game series King of Fighters and Samurai Shodown, as well as arcade shooter Metal Slug.
The third Smash Bros. DLC character, Banjo-Kazooie, is due out this autumn/fall.
Sakurai announced the release details for the Hero character DLC in July, via an unscripted, ad-hoc video which appeared in deep contrast to Nintendo’s usual slick video presentations.
In his latest Famitsu column (translated by PushDustIn) Sakurai explained that he no longer has the budget for high production video presentations, something he first joked about in the Hero presentation itself.
