New leaks have revealed a list of characters expected to join Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in a future DLC pack, with some surprising names included that Smash fans may be shocked to see.

First reported by GearNuke, the leaks have come from 5Channel, a Japanese forum where information about Smash Bros. Ultimate and other Nintendo Switch games has been found.

On January 3, a post from early December was found that seems to contain a list of characters who will be included in the game as DLC in the future.

The leak suggests that Ubisoft’s Rayman will finally be included in the DLC pack – the character was rumored to make an appearance in the base game back in September. The yellow haired character failed to make an appearance in the game when it was released, but could be on his way in the future.

Erdick from the Dragon Quest series was also mentioned, alongside Ryu Hayabusa from the Ninja Gaiden franchise and Marine from DOOM, with the leaker suggesting that all three will release new titles in 2019, and these characters will be introduced to Smash Bros. to promote them.

Finally, Steve from Minecraft was also named as a character set to come to the fighting franchise, with two Pallet Swaps coming in the form of Alex and a Master Chief costume from Halo. Steve was also rumored to be included in the base game, but the leak states he will now be released in Smash to promote DLC for Minecraft Dungeons.

Steve from Minecraft could be making an appearance in the game.

There is currently no information regarding when these new characters may become available, however the leaker suggests we will get more information at E3 2019 in June, while another Nintendo Direct presentation is set to take place this month.

Of course, all of these characters are just rumors and may be incorrect. Still, seeing Rayman and Steve from Minecraft in Super Smash Bros. would make for an incredible experience for Smash fans.

Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel unleashed his signature rage on Smash Online as lag cost him the chance to potentially win a game. 

As one of Twitch’s most popular streamers, xQc garners a huge audience anytime he goes live – and especially when he tries out a new game too.

Some viewers might be there to get his actual take on the game, to see if it’s worth buying themselves if its a new release, but others are there hoping to see him completely lose his mind and lash out at how bad it is, in a way that only he can. 

During his November 27 stream, the former Overwatch League star dove into the world of Smash Online, and while he managed to win a game, he wasn’t exactly overjoyed by the experience.

xQc is never one to shy away from giving his opinion on things.

After a nearly five-minute-long fight, where he was using Cloud against Lucina, the Candian lost it as lag started to hamper the game – preventing him from pulling off moves or avoiding his opponent. 

As he was defeated, xQc let loose on his opponent and the connection. “Congrats man. Dude, I genuinely hope that you spend your entire life getting good at this piece of s**t f**king game, and you go to your local tournament, and you win enough to buy a f**king router, you broke a** p**sy,” he exclaimed. 

xQc then turned his attention onto Smash itself. “I f**king hate this game, it’s so trash – holy s**t. Oh my God, get a router man. I can’t dude, this s**t is f**king trash! Get me out of here dude.”

The streaming star eventually closed the game off, opting to play a few different games before bringing his stream to an end for the day. 

While some fans might hope he goes back to Smash in the future, at least for a game or two, xQc might not be willing to – especially if he comes up against opponents with terrible connections.
