A Devil May Cry 5 voice actor may have revealed a bit too much information when asked about Super Smash Bros during a podcast earlier in January.

Brian Hanford, who voices V in Devil May Cry, revealed he absolutely loves Super Smash Bros and plays Ultimate from time to time while in the AMA podcast.


One of the hosts then asked Hanford if he saw rumors regarding Dante being added to the Smash Bros roster as DLC down the line. Instead of responding directly to the question, he began talking about how he started playing Devil May Cry when he knew he was going to be part of it and how he wants his character of V in Smash.

“This is what kills me about it,” Hanford confessed. “I’m (V) a new character. So I’m not in the DMC lore enough to ever be considered for Super Smash.”


According to the voice actor, having V in Nintendo’s flagship fighter or Marvel vs Capcom would be his “ultimate life goal.”

“To be part of Marvel vs Capcom or Super Smash Bros would be huge, which is what Dante is going to be,” the voice actor seemed to reveal.

While Hanford tried to make the case for V being added to Smash he may have revealed a bit too much info and confirmed Dante’s inclusion in the process.


Smash leaker Sabi, who posted about the interview on Twitter, did note that while he deconfirmed Dante as DLC Fighter 5, it’s possible that the Devil May Cry protagonist could be coming as future post Fighters Pass content.

“What’s interesting to note is that this could either be a joke, weirdly worded speculation, or a major contract breach,” Sabi noted.

As we have previously noted, Devil May Cry Director Hideaki Itsuno never ruled out Dante coming to Smash. In a February 2019 interview with VG 24/7, he explained that he felt DMC would need some sort of history on Nintendo before Dante could make the cut.


Since then, the Capcom hack-and-slash has been ported onto the Switch with a special edition of the third installment arriving February 20.

It will be interesting to see if Dante does in fact get added as future DLC or if he does in fact end up being the mysterious fighter 5. A Nintendo Direct is speculated to arrive later in January with a fighter announcement.

Nintendo have confirmed that it is possible to change the specific Minecraft biome in Smash Ultimate when fighting on the Minecraft stage. Here’s how. 

Every Smash player looks forward to the announcement of a new Fighter. Previously, it was confirmed that Min-Min from ARMS would be joining the battle and then after that, it was all about Minecraft. 


Following much excitement and speculation, Sakurai confirmed that Minecraft would be joining the Smash roster on October 1. Specifically, the Minecraft pair of Steve and Alex – not the Creepers, Zombies, or other characters. 

On top of the new Minecraft characters and a new selection of Mii Fighter Costumes, the Minecraft DLC will also contain a new stage to fight on – Minecraft World.

If you’re out of the loop, Minecraft World isn’t a Minecraft theme park or such, but instead, it’s just a stage that shows off the different biomes that you find in Minecraft – with the exception of the Nether. 

Selecting Minecraft World as your stage means you’ll get a random biome, but Nintendo have confirmed that you can use button combos to select a specific one. 

The guide was tweeted out by the SmashBrosJP account on October 12, showing the different combos that relate to each biome. You can find the name of each biome and its specific button combo listed below. 


Minecraft Smash stage button combos

  • Village – L + A
  • Birch Forest – L + R + A
  • Savanna – L + L stick Up + A
  • Taiga – L + L stick Right + A
  • Snowy Tundra – L + L stick Down + A
  • Stone Shore – L + L stick Left + A


Using these commands will get you the stage you want, otherwise, the Minecraft World level will be random and throw out one of the six variants.

There are slight differences in each variant thanks to the trees, stones, and land creating height differences, but its nothing too crazy.
