Super Smash Bros. Ultimate announcement livestream set for Thursday

Koopa note of this.

Super Smash Bros. fans should tune in this Thursday, 16th January at 2pm UK time for a 35-minute livestream.

Smash boss Masahiro Sakurai will present a detailed look at the game's next DLC - the fifth and final character in the game's Fighters Pass.


To date, we've had Joker from Persona, Hero from Dragon Quest, Banjo & Kazooie and Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury. How's about a Nintendo character next?

The last couple of character announces have been pre-recorded, which makes this livestream stand out.

Nintendo has previously confirmed a second Fighter Pass is also on the way with yet more characters - we may hear news about this then too.
