UPDATE: The final character in Super Smash Bros Ultimate has been revealed.
Sora from Kingdom Hearts is the 13th and final DLC character and will be released on October 18, bringing the final roster to a close at 89 fighters.
ORIGINAL STORY CONTINUES: The final fighter’s release date will also be announced, as will the final selection of costumes for the Mii Fighter characters.
Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai has encouraged video game fans to watch the game’s final character reveal, “even if you don’t play the game”.
“In just one day, the last fighter of Smash Bros. Ultimate will be announced,” he wrote on social media on Monday. “Even if you don’t play the game, if you’re interested in gaming I’d like to recommend you watch it.”
He added: “The new fighter may be a character that you don’t know or different from what you expected. But I hope you enjoy the broadcast itself and I had fun recording it.”
Sakurai recently reiterated that the title’s next fighter will conclude development on the game.
“Finally, the next DLC fighter will be the last one,” he said. “There won’t be any more after that. It’ll be a while before that announcement, but it’ll be available this year as planned, so please be patient. It seems like the team will have to complete this project at home, right up until the end.”
Sakurai previously said he felt that there was “no way” the series would be able to have as many fighters or series represented again in future games.
