Sakurai: Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC lineup complete, decided entirely by Nintendo
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai normally doesn’t tweet in English, but he made the rare exception today. A pair of messages address the DLC situation surrounding the Switch game.
Sakurai confirmed that the DLC lineup for Smash Bros. Ultimate is complete and the selection was done entirely by Nintendo. With Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, you may recall that a ballot was held so that fan feedback could be collected in determining how to proceed with certain characters.
“Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s DLC line-up is now complete. This time the selection was made entirely by Nintendo. I decide if we can create a fighter based on their selection, then come up with the plan.”
Sakurai also made a request for fans to not flood others with fighter requests:
“It’s great to dream about your favorite character joining the battle and I appreciate your passion, but please try to stay on topic when replying to tweets and refrain from flooding us, and other users, with requests when we’re not specifically asking for feedback. Thank you!”
