Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC Fighters Leaked

Details of unannounced DLC fighters of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are leaked ahead of official announcement.

Crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate from developer Bandai Namco Studios and publisher Nintendo has become the fastest-selling title on Nintendo Switch without any sign to slowing down on sales anytime soon and there is more to come.

Lately, data-miners dug into the source code of the game to find out what seems like new fighters roster, yet to be revealed officially in upcoming DLC. Although what they discovered appears to be some codename, fans were quick to find evidence to speculate on.

SSBU will include five brand-new downloadable fighters that would also be a part of "Fighters Pass". The first one of them was revealed to be Joker from Persona 5 at The Game Awards 2018 and the rest four remained unannounced.

Game director Masahiro Sakurai probably was to announce some of the rest during the next Nintendo Direct but the recent findings already has some strong hint for the identities of the unannounced fighters. Since they are still unconfirmed, we suggest you to take this with a grain of salt.

WARNING: THE FOLLOWING MAY CONTAIN POTENTIAL SPOILERS FOR SUPER SMASH BROS. ULTIMATE.

Data-miner jam1garner has posted three code names of DLC characters found within game codes on Twitter that you can see below.

Back in December 9, 2018, leaked info about Ultimate's DLC characters were posted by a user on Japanese image-board site 5Channel (formerly known as 2chan), where they also mentioned about the inclusion of Joker from P5 into the roster and his stage being Mementos.

No one really cared about it that much in the beginning but when his prediction of Persona 5 R title was officially revealed by Atlus, people started paying attention. He also claimed that P5R will be released on the first half of 2019, which we are yet to find out though.

There was also unconfirmed claim for four new characters joining the roster of SSBU and they are Doomguy of the Doom series, Erdrick from the Dragon Quest series, Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden and the default player character Steve of Minecraft.

The claim on Dragon Quest's Erdrick received more credibility upon the datamine leak of code that mentions Jack, Brave and Packu. Here, Jack is referred to be Joker and Packu is a nod to Pakkun Flower, Japanese name for pre-order DLC character Piranha Plant from Super Mario.

Now all that left is "Brave", which translates to Yuusha in Japanese, which also stands for hero and Erdrick belongs to the hero class of Dragon Quest. Moreover, the character has a legacy of appearing throughout the series, notably the first three games.

Therefore, he is a worthy representative of the franchise on the crossover arena of Ultimate and the codename "Brave" fits his description very well. Reportedly, Anlucia from Dragon Quest X is to serve as an alternate skin for.

The source also claimed of a game from Square Enix classic series to arrive on Switch that turned out to be Dragon Quest XI. The hint of Ryu from Ninja Gaiden to make it to SSBU can also be a re-release of the game in 2019 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the franchise.

The arrival of Doomguy may be revealed at E3 2019 to promote the upcoming release of Doom Eternal, also coming to Nintendo Switch. Steve from Minecraft was meant to debut on the launch of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate but shelved as a DLC to promote Minecraft: Dungeons in 2019.

Dragon Quest 11 Coming to Nintendo Switch

One of the best turn-based JRPG title from Square Enix, Dragon Quest 11 will be coming to Nintendo Switch on 2019.

The latest release from the long-running turn-based Japanese role-playing game series Dragon Quest by developer/publisher Square Enix was Dragon Quest XI, which came out in Japan for Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation 4 on July 2017.

September 2018 saw the worldwide release of the game on PC and PS4, garnering mostly positive feedback from critics and fans alike for design and gameplay. Recently at the Jump Festa event this weekend, a Nintendo Switch is announced for 2019.

In its original release for Japan, the title didn't include any voiced characters but when it was brought over to a broader audience, they added English-language voice over alongside a bunch of new gameplay mechanics.

Also, the Switch version will add some aspects that will alter the ending of the game because players will now be allowed to choose their bride and it is not locked to a single marriage choice. Players can also decide to live with two male characters Erik or Hendrik if they want.

More details on Dragon Quest XI S will be revealed later on a Square Enix live-stream in January, when they will also share the official release date for the title. We are currently guessing for a possible release window for April 2019 but nothing is set in the stones yet.

It is still unclear that when there will be a North American release of the game since they haven't given much details of the Japanese release but given that the original game took nearly fourteen months to see a worldwide release, it is not coming for the rest of the world anytime soon.
