Like previous demonstrations Smash Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai hosted for new DLC characters, this one will be roughly 35-minutes long.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now available for the Nintendo Switch. There's no word or rumor about who the next character will be, but the long-awaited unveiling for the newest character is just around the corner. Ultimate can expect to find out who the next character heading to the game will be, announcing a special presentation featuring the game's director.

While the dates could be a coincidence, this was enough for Smash Bros. fans to believe that Dante has a pretty good chance at becoming the next DLC fighter.

To date, we've had Joker from Persona, Hero from Dragon Quest, Banjo & Kazooie and Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury.

The wait is nearly over for Super Smash Bros.

The mystery fighter revealed in this livestream will be the last of the five characters in the first Fighters Pass DLC. Ultimate fans have eagerly awaited an announcement for the latest Fighter Pass addition since Terry Bogard was unleashed past year.

What do you think about the last fighter from the Fighter's Pass? It's no playable fighter or music, but it's great to see Astral Chain get the Smash Bros. bump. Let us know in the comments section.
