While it was only just last week where Masahiro Sakurai confirmed Super Smash Bros. Ultimate would indeed have 5 DLC fighters that doesn’t included the Piranha Plant, it was never stated who the 5 fighters will be.

Naturally, the fan base went made with their predictions and hopes, but yesterday, Sakurai has gone ahead to reveal that although the 5 characters aren’t being developed yet, as their development will start just as soon as the team is finished with the main game, Sakurai has confirmed the line-up is decided already.

He also said Nintendo decided the line-up, but he did have final say. For his exact wording, feel free to consult his English tweets below:

So there you have it, the new fighters are already decided upon and now it is just a waiting game to find out who and what, those fighters will be. The time for begging, is over.
