Nintendo is also careful to say that there will be “no further new fighter reveals other than a fighter from ARMS in this livestream.”
This ARMS character was said to be released in June 2020, so if that holds true, the comments Sakurai made about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s DLC development possibly needing to stop due to COVID-19 may indicate the wait for the next character after this one could be a longer one.
The last character to be revealed was Fire Emblem: Three Houses’ Byleth. In our review of the character, we said “Byleth may be lacking complexity, but the easy-to-pick-up nature of their moves is still worth checking out.”
