Nintendo is gearing up to launch a new
Super Smash Bros. game this December, and the hype couldn’t be higher. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate lives up to its name by including every single playable character in the history of the franchise in its roster. Last generation we saw numerous new fighters added to the roster after the game’s initial launch.
Can we expect DLC for
Smash Ultimate as well, or will the game be complete at launch? Bill Trinen, Nintendo of America’s Senior Product Marketing Manager, tackled this question in a recent interview with Nintendo Life. Unsurprisingly, Nintendo is playing their cards close to the vest for now.
Nintendo Life: Are there plans to either announce characters between now and December or is the finalized, complete roster? Can we expect to see more at a later date?
Bill Trinen: We can answer that when we get closer to December.
Nintendo Life: Will there be DLC? Are there plans to expand on the game after release?
Bill Trinen: The thing about us, when it comes to something like DLC, we don’t really start on it until we have got the game done. So, maybe when the game comes out they will make a decision on if they will do it, or if they do what they want to do, that sort of thing.
Trinen’s non-answer to the first question suggests we could possibly see more roster reveals before launch day, but he wouldn’t commit to that. As for DLC, that’s up to Sakurai. We’ll just have to wait and see.
