We’re still waiting for word on who Smash Ultimate’s mysterious fifth fighter will be in the Fighter Pass, but this fan clearly thinks Jonesy from Fortnite would be a good fit.

There have been several hints and rumors about who the next Smash Ultimate fighter will be, but nothing has yet been set in stone.

With so many different possibilities, fans don’t really know what to expect at this point, but that hasn’t stopped them from speculating.

Some fans have even gone the extra mile and created their own reveal trailers for their favorite characters to share the excitement with other players.

Reddit user “KinaKingy created their own reveal trailer for Fortnite’s famous default skin, Jonesy; but rather than being animated with CGI, the cinematic was hand-drawn.

It actually works pretty well, and we can easily picture Jonesy as the game’s elusive fifth fighter. To top things off, Jonesy’s Final Smash is dropping a meteor, which will bring back memories of Fortnite Season 3, when a meteor reshaped the map.

What’s even crazier about all of this is that Jonesy might not even be that much of a stretch as Smash’s fifth potential DLC fighter.

Both Fortnite and Smash Ultimate appeal to players of all ages, so adding in a player from the hit battle royale title wouldn’t be the worst idea. That’s not even mentioning the fact that Fortnite is also available on the Nintendo Switch.

NintendoWho will be the last fighter?

There are plenty of skins to choose from if they wanted to add a Fortnite character to Smash, but Jonesy is definitely one of the most recognizable characters.

With a Pokemon Direct already being held in January, fans are starting to become a bit impatient as the fifth announcement draws nearer.

Dante could be the next fighter according to the latest hints.

There’s still a chance there will be a Nintendo Direct in January, and a Capcom developer has potentially hinted at that happening on either January 16 or 30.

This isn’t definitive information by any times, so don’t read too much into it. Whether it’s Jonesy or somebody else, we’re going to find out who this final DLC character will be sometime in the near future.


How to watch Fortnite’s Galactus event: Start time, leaks, location, more

Fortnite’s hotly-anticipated Galactus event, coming soon as the Season 4 finale, is the talk of the town; from when the Marvel character will make his mark, to how you can watch it in-game, here’s everything you need to know.

A bright object in the sky has begun hurtling towards the Fortnite map, and thanks to datamining and logic, it seems only reasonable to suggest that Galactus is on his way to cause destruction.

Similar to the devastation caused by the Season 1 meteor, you would have to think that his intentions are not good. It seems we’re gearing up for a massive battle featuring every Marvel character currently in the game.

The original Fortnite meteor was first spotted a month and a half before it landed – destroying Dusty Depot – and the same type of impact appears to be on the horizon.

Fortnite Galactus event start date and time

Such is the hype surrounding the appearance of Galactus that he’s taken an incredibly long time to appear. However, his arrival is finally set in stone.

The Nexus War finale event is a one-time spectacle set to kick off on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 PM ET | 1 PM PT | 9 PM GMT.

Some leaks of the upcoming event have made their way to the internet which depicts Thor, She-Hulk, Wolverine, and Iron Man offering themselves as soldiers to fight Galactus.

Fighting Galactus to end the Nexus War will be a one-time event. No replays for this historic battle.

The event itself could see the superheroes taking on Galactus in the form of a raid. Or you could possibly have Galactus taking on the whole lobby, or a Thanos-inspired mode akin to Chapter 1.

Galactus is officially listed as being 28ft tall and that in itself could offer some interesting gameplay options. Given that this will close out a season-long Nexus War, there’s a good chance you’ll have a ton of manual input here. So expect to help the heroes in their fight.

First look at Galactus

With the use of one of the game’s sniper rifles, it’s possible for players to look through the scope, at the object in the sky, and spy him. He’s obviously been getting closer and closer over the season, but thanks to new leaks, we’ve got a better look at the figure than ever before.

It turns out there’s actually a standard sized Galactus skin in the game’s files. Perhaps we’ll be able to run around as the Devourer of Worlds after the event. Only time will tell.

Here are some datamined images of Galactus’ model, too.

The main rumor concerning Phase 4 of the MCU is that Galactus will indeed be the archetypal villain of the main films. The Devourer of Worlds quite literally does what he says on the tin, and his power is unmatched.

The Fortnite tie-in will be a great way to introduce casual fans to the presence of one of the universe’s most powerful, cosmic entities.

We’ve also got a look at where Galactus is. It seems he’s positioned right about the ruins POI in-game from this screenshot from Fortnite leaker, Fevers.

Rising Out of the Water

ShiinaBR also tweeted on November 22, 2020 that Galactus has slowly begun to rise out of the water. We’ll make sure to update this article when we have a better look at this.

Lazing Device

On November 4, Fortnite data miner Mang0e tweeted about a mysterious new weapon in the works. Hardly anything is known about what this ‘Lazing Device’ is. However, Mang0e believes it could perhaps be a prototype for the upcoming Cosmos rifle.

Its base stats are that of the Bolt Sniper Rifle, which is the same as the Cosmos ones, too. Mang0e goes on to say in their Twitter thread that this is all speculation, however, but rebuffs his claims by saying that they were right about the Slurp Bazooka in the past.
