New Private Video Uploaded to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate YouTube Channel Suggests an Announcement is Coming

Some recent activity from Nintendo implies a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate announcement could be happening at The Game Awards.

With The Game Awards taking place tomorrow night, many are expecting that Nintendo will come prepared to reveal who the fifth fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s Fighter’s Pass add-on is set to be. Thanks to some recent activity on one of Nintendo’s official Smash outlets, it seems as though this possibility has now become all the more likely.

Within the past few hours, a new video was uploaded to the official Super Smash Bros. YouTube channel. As of now, the video is still set to private, meaning that no one can watch it, but it does seem to validate that Nintendo has made some recent moves behind the scenes. It’s worth noting that the official Smash channel has long had two private videos on the channel, but a third one, the video in question here, has now also appeared.

Of course, this move logically infers that Nintendo will soon be publishing a new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate related video on the channel. Given the proximity in which this has happened to The Game Awards, it stands to reason that Smash could have a big showing of some sorts tomorrow.

Over the past few months, various “leaks” have come about potentially indicating who the 5th DLC fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate could be. One such leak added credence to the additions of either Geno or Doom Guy, while another went as far to suggest that Master Chief from the Halo series was a possibility. As for who we’re hoping to see added to the roster, our own Staff Writer Cameron Hawkins is crossing his fingers to soon see Sora from the Kingdom Hearts franchise revealed to be joining Ultimate.

We’ll have to wait to see more tomorrow night to learn if Nintendo is indeed set to reveal the final character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s DLC slate. The Game Awards 2019 are set to kick off at 8:30pm EST/5:30pm PST on December 12.
