A new Super Smash Bros fighter is fast approaching and series creator Masahiro Sakurai is set to present the new character in all of their glory in a special livestream.

There has been much speculation on the identity of the mysterious fighter in the months leading up to the reveal. Prominent leakers with the community have been deconfirming potential characters through their sources, but have not outright stated who the upcoming fighter is.

The frontrunner thus far seems to be Dante from the Devil May Cry franchise thanks to a series of hints. Firstly, Matt Walker, the producer for the Switch port of DMC 3 indicated that there would be special announcements beginning January 16, which happens to be the date of the Smash stream.

Additionally, as Dexerto first reported, the voice actor for ‘V’ in Devil May Cry 5 appeared to let slip that Dante would be coming to Smash while being interviewed in a January podcast. After dismissing the prospect of V appearing in Smash, the actor claimed that being “part of Marvel vs Capcom or Super Smash Bros would be huge,” and that noted that this is “what Dante is going to be.”

Other popular theories and characters not ruled out by leakers include Halo’s Master Chief, Waluigi, yet another Fire Emblem character, or a Pokemon Sword and Shield fighter.

That said, there are still plenty of fighters still in the running and with no one outright confirmed, it’s really anyone’s guess who the final Fighters Pass candidate is.

Where to watch the Smash Bros livestream

North American fans will need to wake up early and brew some coffee if they want to watch the presentation live. The livestream is scheduled to begin at 6 AM PST/9 AM EST and will last 35 minutes.

You can watch the presentation live on Nintendo’s YouTube channel.

Due to the length, it’s expected that in addition to the character’s reveal, Sakurai will also be showcasing their moves, kit, outfits and series history as he has done for other DLC characters.

Additionally, with rumors of a second Fighters Pass circulating, it will be interesting to see if a second pass is formally announced. Nintendo did say that new fighters would be coming post-pass, but didn’t state how many or if they would be single-purchase fighters.

Tyler1 amazes Smash Ultimate pros after battling MkLeo on Twitch

Tyler ‘Tyler1’ Steinkamp faced off against the number one Smash Ultimate player, Leonardo ‘MkLeo’ López Pérez, in what was meant to be a fun T1 crossover. Instead, the League challenger got to work, trash talking and smashing about the best in the world.

Tyler1 doesn’t do anything by halves. He’s loud, and has the personality to match. He revs up his Twitch stream to hundreds of thousands of adoring fans daily, who are there not for the gameplay, but for the Tyler1 ride.

Those who caught the streamer’s November 27 cast were certainly in for a ride. The League of Legends star collided with Smash Ultimate’s biggest name, MkLeo.

It makes sense a crossover between the two was inevitable ⁠— with both being part of prestigious organization T1 ⁠— but the action exceeded everyone’s expectations. Of course, Tyler1 got trounced by MkLeo. However, that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to get a stock or two, and the League streamer let the Smash pro know about it.

“Leo, I don’t think you’re that good dude. How bad are Smash players if I almost f**king beat you,” Tyler1 said, while struggling to get more than half a stock on average every game.

MkLeo didn’t take it lying down though. “You’re so bad that you’re really good at the same time,” he hit back with.

Tyler1 kept frying the big fish though. Next on his stop of trash talk was Leffen. “Leffen is a scrawny p*ssy a** b*tch. Kid sucks at f**king Smash. Rages at a children’s game, f**king loser,” he said, which had MkLeo in stitches. He had enough slaptalk for Samsora and other pros too.

Fans were also treated to some iconic Tyler1 reactions, and there was none bigger than the streamer’s bewilderment at Arsene, Joker’s Persona. “What the hell is that? Did you just enter a cheat code, bud? Are you cheating?”

After it was all said and done though, the crossover did what it intended to do. It united the League of Legends and Smash communities, and entertained everyone in the crossover that no one really wanted, but they definitely enjoyed.

“Playing and chilling with [Tyler1] really made me realize what it is to be a streamer and a gamer. Loved his personality and him as a person, looking forward to more collaborations like these,” MkLeo said on Twitter.

“T1 playing smash with Leo was actually so godlike. Makes me actually want to play league more and see if I can get to further than Masters,” Samsora also added on Twitter.

Tyler1 kept his side of the story nice and quaint though: “It was pretty fun.”
