The roster of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate to Nintendo Switch seems to have now come to an end. According to the words of Masahiro Sakurai, the creator of the saga Nintendo, the title's new fighter pass, due out shortly, will also be the last. Never before has a chapter of this fighting game saga reached so many characters in one game, touching the remarkable milestone of well 88 fighters coming from the best video games around.
The news was released by Sakurai in the weekly column of Famitsu, the famous Japanese magazine. Thanks to Ultimate's Fighter Pass Vol. 2 the game will see the addition of 6 new characters chosen directly by Nintendo and not by the creator of the work.
Also not being planned a possible sequel to the fighting series, Sakurai will be free to devote himself to something else and let go of his latest work now finished. As he himself stated, work on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate began immediately after the launch of Super Smash Bros for 3DS and Wii, that is to say at the end of 2014.
Famitsu Column for Sakurai has leaked.
Here are some takeaways:
6 additional fighters are being made for Smash Ultimate. After that, there are no other plans so Smash Ultimate is almost finished.
