The first lineup of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate included some familiar third-party characters that were great additions to the growing roster. Fans want for the second Fighters Pass to have third-party additions as well.
Perhaps the most popular Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC characters are those made by Nintendo. These include Joker from Persona 5, Banjo-Kazooie, and Terry Bogart from King of Fighters. If Nintendo were to add more third-party characters to the game, perhaps these should get a spotlight next.
The brave and young lead from Kingdom Hearts more than deserves a spot on the roster for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. As the lead character from one of the world’s leading RPGs, Sora already has a huge following supporting his entry in the game.
The only issue that might arise from Sora’s addition to the game is that Nintendo might have to pay a hefty licensing fee to Disney. It would feel empty if Sora is there, but his trusted allies like Goofy and Donald aren’t going to be a part of his moves list.
Steve is the name of the basic avatar in Minecraft, and surprisingly, fans want the lead of the world’s most popular game to become a part of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC lineup.
What’s great about having Steve join the game is that he could come with unique mechanics that offer for a varied way to play the game. He could build or summon blocks from Minecraft as part of his gimmick. Like the others on this list, Steve has been highly requested. He has also been the star of various alleged leaks that revealed the characters from the first Fighters Pass.
The most obvious character that should be added is Crash Bandicoot from Naughty Dog’s most popular platforming series. The character has made a comeback thanks to remakes of the first three games, as well as Crash Tag Team Racing. After all these years, we’re going to get a fourth game as well.
Adding him to the roster completes the game’s lineup that’s already filled with popular gaming icons. Moreover, he has been long-requested by fans already, and it’s time Nintendo steps up.
The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC characters are all going to launch by 2022. We’ve already gotten Min Min from ARMs, so there are still five characters to be waiting for. Hopefully, Nintendo adds more surprise third-party characters into the mix.
