The final Smash Ultimate DLC is coming soon, with Masahiro Sakurai scheduled to reveal everything about how the soon-to-be-revealed character will play. Here’s everything you need to know.
Smash Ultimate was released in 2018 and, after three years of Nintendo updates and new Fighter Pass releases, the final addition will soon make its way to the game.
Whether this is the last leg of support for Smash Ult remains to be seen, but the company are sure that this will be the “last presentation about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate,” as Nintendo’s Yoshiaki Koizumi said during the Sept 23 Direct.
As expected, there’s eager anticipation to find out which character deserves to get the final spot in the Smash roster.
Smash Ultimate DLC reveal date and time
Every Smash fan will have their calendars marked for Tuesday, October 5 at 7 AM PST / 10 AM EST / 3 PM BST to see which fighter will be shown as the last addition in Ultimate.
As always, Sakurai will navigate audiences through the first footage of the new Smash Ultimate fighter moves and gameplay that should all last about 40 minutes.
Tune-in on 10/5 at 7am PT for the reveal presentation of the final Super #SmashBrosUltimate DLC fighter with Director Masahiro Sakurai. The fighter’s release date and final Mii Fighter costumes will also be revealed!

Smash Ultimate DLC livestream
Smash players around the world will get their first glimpse of the new (and final) Smash Ultimate fighter on Nintendo’s official YouTube livestream.
We’ve embedded the livestream below so you can bookmark this page and come back when the announcement begins to watch along.
Smash Mii Fighters in final DLC
Nintendo regularly release new Mii Fighter outfits with DLC drops to customize your unique fighter. For the final Smash Ultimate DLC drop, it wouldn’t be surprising if the company releases something special for their fans.
It’s currently unknown what will come in the way of Mii Fighter content, but more details should be released soon.
Last Smash Fighter DLC leaks
There’s been a ton of talk about who the last Smash Ultimate DLC character will be and rumors have been circulating based on apparent leaks that have recently come out. One of the biggest theories is that Sora from Kingdom Hearts will join the fight.
There’s also been wild speculation ever since a confusing post on Nintendo’s official Facebook account had 84 fighters counted on the roster. That only served to remind people about a previous leak that hinted at a four-in-one Zelda character.
With all the leaked teases for the final DLC fighter lately, Sakurai’s been needing a break from all the fan theories. That might just come to pass after we see who will be the last Smash Ultimate DLC.
