A new Japanese 7-Eleven advertisement may indicate that Super Smash Bros Ultimate will have a new DLC fighter very soon.

On September 20, users on Twitter began spreading a screenshot of a new advertisement from 7-Eleven for Smash Ultimate DLC. This is a big deal, because as history has shown, these ads are normally followed by a DLC announcement.

This ad in question features the previous fighter MinMin and the yet-to-be-revealed remaining cast of Fighters Pass Volume 2 and will be up until October 4.

Translator Push Dustin noted on Twitter, in the past, 7-Eleven Smash Ultimate ads have led to the release of DLC fighters. With Banjo and Hero, the ads came out a week before they were available. With Joker, the ad came out 10 days before he was released.

Another thing to keep in mind is the new Smash Ultimate tournament mode scheduled for September 26. This a big deal, as this is the first time this mode has been available in North America with it previously being a Japan-exclusive.

Because DLC releases are normally accompanied by a patch, it’s unlikely that Nintendo would drop a big balance update before a sizable tournament, especially considering the possibility of bugs.

With a week from September 20 being September 27, it’s possible that this could be when the next DLC fighter is revealed followed by a full release later on in the week.

This timeframe also lines up with Amiibo Theory. As Dexerto has previously reported, users have discovered a trend where Amiibo waves are often accompanied by a new fighter. Given the past results, it’s likely that the new DLC will launch any time until October 12.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting the reveal of Smash Ultimate’s Challenger Pack 7 and now it’s looking more likely than ever that news is on the way soon. We’ll just have to see what exactly the future holds and who that character ends up being.

Apex Legends hints at removing World’s Edge in Season 7

Apex Legends players are patiently waiting for Season 7 to begin and explore all the new content coming with it, but fans of World’s Edge will have to be patient to go back to Talos.

The map was added to Apex during Season 3 all the way back in October 2019 and was the second map in the game after King’s Canyon.

While it certainly mixed up the battle royale, it seems like World’s Edge will be on the way out when Season 7 gets going on November 4, 2020, based on what we’ve seen from Respawn.

In a tweet on Oct. 27, the official Apex Legends account hinted that “with World’s Edge on the verge of collapse, the Apex Games need to find a new home.”

It doesn’t take a genius to pick up on what Respawn is putting down here, as it seems the map will be removed from the game, at least for a while, with the start of Season 7.

This wouldn’t be without precedent either. Back in Season 3 when World’s Edge was first introduced King’s Canyon, the game’s original map from the release was removed until it returned in April of 2020.

With Ranked being broken into two splits for the new Season, Respawn plans to introduce players to Olympus, the new home of the Apex Games, before sending players back to WE later in the Ascension update.

In fact, Kings Canyon is already going to be completely nixed from Apex Legends’ ranked playlist in Season 7.

It seems likely that the Legends will board the giant rocket that appeared recently on World’s Edge and set off somewhere new to battle it out for the top spot.

As for what will happen to the train and everything else, there was a black hole showcased in Horizon’s Stories from the Outlands video, that certainly seems like it would be able to swallow the entire map, and even the planet it’s located on.
