There are plenty of rumours swirling around who could be the next DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
Latest leaks claim that Tracer from Overwatch could be the next Fighters Pass character for SSBU.
These rumours come courtesy of a now deleted GameFaqs post penned by Slayersfan, a leaker that allegedly predicted two Overwatch skins which were released in 2019.
According to the leak, an agreement between Nintendo and Blizzard for Tracer to appear in Smash Bros was reached earlier this year but plans got held up due to COVID-19.
Fighters Pass 2 will be the final DLC season released for Super Smash Bros Ultimate, and there’s been plenty of rumours surrounding which characters could feature.
Crash Bandicoot, Ninja Gaiden’s Ryu Hayabusa, Minecraft’s Steve, Doomguy, Sora from Kingdom Hearts and Devil May Cry’s Dante are other characters that the rumour mill has said could be getting the DLC treatment in Smash.
While those rumours about Waluigi and Geno looks set to stick around until these much-demanded characters get added to Smash Bros.
The last time a DLC character was released for Super Smash Bros Ultimate was back in June, when Min Min was the first character released for Fighters Pass 2.
In total Fighters Pass 2 will feature six DLC characters – one more than the first fighters pass.
Fighters Pass Vol 1 had an eclectic range of characters, from Nintendo IPs as well as games made by third-party devs.
The characters included in Fighters Pass 1 were Joker from Persona 5, Dragon Quest’s Hero, Banjo & Kazooie, SNK icon Terry Bogard and Fire Emblem’s Byleth.
