Super Smash Bros. Ultimate announcement livestream set for Thursday

Smash Bros. Ultimate's 5th DLC Character Will Be Revealed On 16th January In Livestream

Heads up, Smash Bros Ultimate fans: Nintendo has announced that the game's next DLC character will be revealed later this week. Ultimate video presentation hosted by director Masahiro Sakurai on January 16, 6 am PT/9 am ET.

He may also reveal what's next for Super Smash Bros. This could mean that development on this character is close to completion and we may not have to wait that much longer for them to be released. The director will then run down the character's various attacks and specials. Is this hinting that Dante will be joining the fight? Each update normally adds some content to the fighting game alongside character balance tweaks.

The stream is to be held on the publisher's YouTube channel. It's no playable fighter or music, but it's great to see Astral Chain get the Smash Bros. bump. The four other DLC characters who have been released so far have been Joker from Persona 5, Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury, Banjo and Kazooie, and Dragon Quest's Hero.

And Switch gamers interested in finding out the latest Character DLC news will be able to tune in from 2pm, GMT. Ultimate player has been wondering - "when is the next DLC fighter going to be revealed?"

For Smash fans in the United States, the Nintendo Direct live stream will be available to watch at the less easy, 6am, PT.

Who do you think the new DLC fighter will be?
