A New Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighter Will Be Revealed at The Game Awards 2020
After Joker's reveal in 2018, it looks like Nintendo is preparing to reveal a new Smash Bros. fighter at tonight's The Game Awards 2020.
While it’s now in its second year since release, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down with its massive roster continuing to grow with new characters and additions. With a few months having passed since the release of the last new fighter, it seems like The Game Awards will once again be the host for the next fighter announcement for Smash Bros., with the stage set for a reveal tonight.
Ahead of tonight’s show, Nintendo of America teased on Twitter that a new fighter will be revealed at The Game Awards 2020, which will finally detail the third new addition in Fighters Pass Vol. 2. So far, the first two characters in the second DLC pass have included Min-Min from ARMS and Steve & Alex (and an assortment of other characters) from Minecraft.

Of course, now that we know that The Game Awards will debut a new fighter, it’s all a matter of seeing who the new addition will be. Whether it’s a familiar character from Nintendo’s stable of franchises or a new third-party addition, the previous DLC fighters we’ve seen so far have shown that now it seems like anyone is up for grabs to join the fight.
Notably, Nintendo revealed the very first new fighter addition for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at The Game Awards 2018 with Persona 5‘s Joker. The reveal was one that most never seen it coming, so hopefully we’ll get another surprising reveal of Joker’s calibur at The Game Awards tonight. Thankfully, we won’t have too much longer to wait to find out more.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available now exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
