Rumour: The Next Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC Fighter Has Been Datamined

Smash Ultimate's next Spirit event is the retro-themed 'Playing with Spirit Power'

Ultimate's DLC Fighters Pass will introduce five new characters to the game over the course of 2019 and 2020.

Throughout the weekend, characters from the NES, Famicom, and the Famicom Disk System-such as the Balloon Fighter and Donkey Kong Jr. -will appear much more frequently on the Spirit Board.

A Dragon Quest DLC character looks plausible, but who is it?

Jack is thought by some to be the code name for Persona 5's Joker, another character that was recently confirmed as one of the DLC fighters.

First up is 'fighter_kind_packun, ' a reference to "Pankun Flower", otherwise known as Piranha Plant in the West. Piranha Plant was included as a redeemable pre-order bonus for those that purchased Super Smash Bros.

However, as with any leak of unconfirmed information, this DLC character roster leak for Super Smash Bros.

First off, courageous is a possible direct translation of the Japanese word "Yuusha", which itself is the name of the Hero class from older Dragon Quest titles. There can be palette swaps but it can be a set of multiple heroes with costume variations that are taken from the Dragon Quest series. Other theories say that Jack is a reference to Jack Frost, a demon also from the Persona franchise. Joker will come with Super Smash Bros.

Earlier today, there was a new leak for Super Smash Bros Ultimate that listed the complete DLC character roster. This lines up with director Masahiro Sakurai's previous statement that all of Smash Ultimate's DLC characters were determined ahead of time. The other two are labeled under the code names "Jack" and "Brave".
