With that, it now marks the 2nd time a female DLC fighter joined Smash, following on the heels of Bayonetta, who debuted back in Smash for 3DS and Wii U in 2016.
Could this mean we may get more female DLC fighters in the future like Tifa Lockeart from Final Fantasy VII Remake and 9B from NieR Automata?
Well Tifa is a fan-favorite among FF fans and I thought FFVII could've used more lore in Ultimate (spirit board, spirits, new stage, and new tracks) but maybe Square Enix still won't allow it? (The franchise in Smash only has 2 tracks, 2 trophies and 2 spirits, all in the form of Cloud). Also there were talks about more FF characters being added in Smash for 3DS and Wii U but Sakurai thought it was too difficult to think of any character that wasn't Cloud.I could see another female DLC fighter being announced. Possibly Shantae as she's a popular pick with plenty of Nintendo association (having debuted on the Game Boy Color) but it's not going ot be Tifa OR 2B (I don't even know who 9B is think you made an error there Asa) in that slot. Considering all the hassle it took just to get Cloud back in with only two measly tracks and no assist trophies with very few stickers pretty clear we aren't going to get another FF representative in Smash especially since I'm sure they want to pick from either very Nintendo based franchises or more specific third party franchises. However it still has to either be one the people want to see, Sakurai is an actual fan of or someone at Nintendo wants to work with none of which really fits 2B so yeah don't expect that one to be picked.
and as of today, we now have Banjo-Kazooie (who was released in Ultimate's first Fighters Pass) and Minecraft (who is planned to be released for Ultimate's second and final Fighters Pass), both for Microsoft.
Bandai-Namco has yet to see another character, besides Pac-Man, join Smash, which is why it's possible we could see another series coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate next year. I'm betting it's from the Soul series.
Also, maybe one more Square Enix character like 2B/9S from NieR Automata would be nice.
I wouldn't mind a Tekken fighter joining Smash. It would be cool. Also I heard the Mortal Kombat games were banned in Japan.Souls does seem likely though I'd honestly probably want someone from Tekken as it would be nice to see all the top video game fighting mascots in smash brothers. Part of me still wants Mortal Kombat but yeah that ain't happening but Tekken is much more likely.
Well, NieR Automata did the success sales on Nintendo Switch, which is the reason I felt like she would be a suitable candidate.Look 2B is not happening. If we are getting another Square Enix character it is either going to be Geno (considering that has been a popular request for going on a decade and a half and is a Mario character only half owned by Square anyway) or Sora from Kingdom Hearts. Those are the top runners.
Yeah, could be the reason.I admit Steve is a bit surprising here even if it was such a popular pick but I will give credit that they did show a very creative moveset and I do like him having alts. I don't know if going Dragon Quest's 4 was necessary as honestly Alex was fine so why have Zombie AND Enderman but hey it does weirdly enough fit the horror theme of October so that's something I didn't think the new character would do thus kudos there.

For Sora, it might be complicated to get him into Smash due to licensing issues.
Also, his English VA might never work for Nintendo because of contract issues. Katsuhiro Harada even had to mute requests for him.
And as for Geno, do we seriously need another Mario character? We just had Piranha Plant released and having 10 Mario characters would be WAY too many. And Geno has not appeared since his Superstar Saga cameo.
If they don't get in, just let it go and get used to it, okay?
Sorry about me thinking NieR was on Switch. My mistake..... What are you talking about? Nier Automata isn't EVEN ON THE NINTENDO SWITCH! There's been talk of a port for that game for the Switch but nothing has actually come of it so Nier Automata isn't on a Nintendo console. Which yeah doesn't mean she's a 100% lock out since Joker got a spot before any version of Persona 5 got on Nintendo, but Persona 5 was a game Masahiro Sakurai has decleared to be a huge fan of and was even inspired to incoperate elements into Smash (like the menus) even BEFORE the annoucement of DLC. I've heard nothing about Sakurai eing a fan of this series which again isn't high on Nintendo's priorities either so yeah don't really see it happening at all.
