Nintendo fans may have received the best possible indication of the next year’s release date Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC fighters. An ad now appearing in Japan for Fighter’s Pass Vol. 2. 2 DLC contains five open positions in addition to the first DLC fighter, Min-Min. However, the ad will only run until October 7th, leading many to believe that the next fighter will be revealed on or around that date. Obviously, once the next fighter is revealed, this ad will no longer be relevant. The new ad can be found in the tweet below.
Fighter Pass 7 will be announced shortly. This ad runs until October 4th

It is entirely possible that the next DLC fighter will be revealed next month. While Nintendo previously stated that these DLC fighters will be more spaced than the ones in the first Fighter’s Pass, there are five fighters left. The coronavirus pandemic likely had some impact on development, but it’s likely Nintendo wanted more than one fighter released this year. A new fighter before the holiday season would also allow the company to use him in promotional materials alongside other major Switch publications.
If the timing turns out to be correct, it can also lead to an indication of the fighter’s identity. A release date for the second batch of Pokemon sword and shield DLC is expected to be released before the end of the year. The current generation of Pokemon does not yet have a representative in Super Smash Bros. Ultimateso it is quite possible that a pokemon is out The crown tundra DLC could appear in the game. It’s worth noting that there were generations of Pokemon that weren’t represented in the game, but most of them were. A fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate would give Nintendo the chance to promote DLC for both games.
Of course, it is entirely possible that it is also another fighter! Fans have been asking for fighters like Geno, Waluigi, Sora and others. It remains to be seen if fans will see these characters. Thankfully, fans don’t seem to have to wait much longer to find out!
