Super Smash Bros.Ultimate Director Masahiro Sakurai has confirmed some disappointing news. In his recent Famitsu column, Sakurai talked about a number of things related to Super Smash Bros.Ultimate, especially Kazuya Mishima, a Tekken character and the future Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC character. Kazuya is set to be the game’s penultimate DLC character. After Kazuya, another character is released and Challenger Pack No. 2 ends. Many super Smash Bros. Ultimate fans on the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite are enduring another challenge package after this one, but Sakurai has reiterated that this is not happening.
In the column, Sakurai does not tease who this last character is, but he confirms that they will actually be the last DLC character, which probably means support for the game in addition to an odd patch or two probably also ends, as the game̵

That said, it’s worth noting that all of this comes via translation, which means it has to be taken with a grain of salt. While Sakurai is quite clear and punctual about all of this, it does not change the fact that meaning and vital coherence are sometimes lost through translation.
As for the last DLC character, we do not know. Names like Doomslayer, Master Chief, Lloyd Irving, Sora, Crash Bandicoot, Ryu Hayabusa and more have been tossed around by rumors, but so far none of these rumors have been substantiated or validated in any meaningful way. And of course, everyone has their choices, including us.
Super Smash Bros.Ultimate is available via Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite, and soon it will also be available via the Nintendo Switch OLED model.
