Smash Bros DLC Will Only Feature Game Characters

Super Smash Bros Ultimate features one of the biggest rosters ever. There’s a character for everybody, with the core characters taken from all previous games in the series present, plus plenty of DLC.

A lot of ground has been covered, with everybody from Mario to Sonic to Cloud to Solid Snake present.

That being said, some fans have wanted even more diversity in the game. Characters such as Goku from Dragon Ball or even Spongebob Squarepants are names thrown around.

There’s some unfortunate news for anyone in that sort of boat. Smash development chief Masahiro Sakurai accepted an award for Smash Bros Ultimate at this year’s Tokyo Game Show. Sakurai mentioned during his acceptance speech, how certain characters would not be appearing in the game.

“I get all these kinds of requests from abroad like, ‘Where is my beloved Iron-Man?’ or ‘Where is my beloved Goku?’,” Sakurai said. “However, basically [Smash] will only have content from video games in it.”

Of course, there are still plenty of other characters yet to be revealed, with more DLC announced outside of the Fighters Pass. With Banjo-Kazooie having landed this past month, and Fatal Fury’s Terry Bogard coming soon as well, there’s a lot that Nintendo have already done.
