Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is Getting Mii Fighter Costume DLC in 2019
Give Mii your credit card PIN.
If you were upset that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate didn’t include one of the 2,674 characters you decided would be perfect for the game, you’re not alone. However, don’t fret, it turns out Ultimate is getting some new Mii Fighter Costume content in 2019 that will enable you to modify your Mii and pretend that your favorite characters were in the game.
This news comes from a Nintendo support webpage entitled “What DLC Is Available? (Super Smash Bros. Ultimate)“. In addition to listing the game’s previously announced post-launch content, the page also states that “Mii Fighter Costume” will be available for $0.75 in 2019. While the page doesn’t specify exactly which costumes (or how many) will be coming, it’s clear that (at the very least) one Mii Fighter Costume will be coming to Ultimate.
The presence of purchasable Mii Fighter Costumes isn’t anything new for the Super Smash Bros. franchise. Back when Smash 4 was released on Wii U and 3DS, Nintendo released six waves of new Mii Fighter cosmetics. Including costumes that resembled characters like Chocobo from Final Fantasy, Tails from Sonic, and Akira from Virtua Fighter, Smash 4’s Mii Fighter DLC provided more depth to the game’s built-in pool of characters. Now, even with Ultimate‘s mammoth-sized roster, Mii Fighter cosmetics are promising even more layers of customization for players.
Additional Mii Fighter costumes are just one of the ways Nintendo is embracing games-as-a-service monetization with the Super Smash Bros. franchise. Earlier this year, Nintendo announced that Ultimate would be receiving several downloadable fighters that could be purchased in Individual Challenger Packs for $5.99 or altogether through Ultimate‘s Fighter Pass for $24.99. Already announcing Persona 5‘s Joker, Smash‘s roster only looks to become more jam-packed as the year progresses.
