Now that Nintendo has released the latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC character ‘Hero’, everyone is wondering who will be next to be added to the ever growing roster – but a new rumor approaches!

Nintendo released Dragon Quest XI’s Hero to Smash on July 30, making him the second character to fill out the Ultimate ‘Fighters Pass’.

Banjo & Kazooie is set to release this Fall, but there are still two more fighters left to fill out the pass. A recent online ‘leak’ suggests that the next character to join the fight may be from a hit indie game.

Undertale x Smash?

The rumor suggests that Frisk from Undertale may be the next character to be joining the popular fighting game. 

The source is from 4chan, so obviously you should take it with a huge grain of salt. However, some major leaks have happened before on the site. For instance, Pokemon Let’s Go on Switch had major leaks that showed up on the forum in advance of the game’s announcement. 

Undertale / Toby FoxFrisk is rumored to be the next Smash character.

The rumor also said that Frisk started development a couple weeks after Hero was finished. Interestingly, it claims that Hero was actually finished in June, but needed an entire month for them to balance. 

Given that the insane amount of special attacks that the Dragon Quest character has, it wouldn’t be too far-fetched that he needed extra time for balancing.

Sakurai loves indie titles

In an interview with Famitsu in 2018, Super Smash Bros. Director Masahiro Sakurai said that he was playing indie titles such as Stardew Valley on the Switch, and got “hooked” – could he have fallen in love with Undertale too?

His comments sent fans into a frenzy, speculating if Smash might get its first indie character. So it’s hard to say whether the rumored leak is accurate, or just wishful thinking.

The ‘leak’ also claimed that Banjo was 80% done, and should be out in early to mid September. So Smash players should find out soon whether this pans out or not.

UPDATE 12:45PM PST September 1:

According to Nintendo’s official website, the next Smash Ultimate character could be someone from an SNK title

While nothing has been 100% confirmed, a copyright at the bottom of the page for the fourth DLC hero heavily implies that this is the case.

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.
