Nintendo leaker Sabi has confirmed that yet another popular choice for Super Smash Bros Ultimate’s fighter pass DLC won’t be making it into the game anytime soon.

Fans of Super Smash Bros Ultimate have been waiting for the announcement surrounding the fifth Fighter of the Fighter’s Pass DLC for quite some time. 

Ever since Terry Bogard was announced as the fourth, fans and leakers have been kicking things into overdrive with the respective suggestions. Leakers have dug through files and what information they have to try and confirm the next addition, but as of now, they’ve only been able to confirm who won’t be making into the game.

NintendoThe fifth member of the Fighter’s Pass is still yet to be revealed.

One such leaker is Sabi, who has previously debunked the idea of Lloyd Irving from J-RPG Tales of Symphonia being the next Fighter despite hopes from fans and teases from the character’s voice actor.

Now though, the leaker has confirmed that another popular choice – Sora from Kingdom Hearts – won’t be added as a part of the fifth installment of the Fighter’s Pass DLC.

“Wouldn’t bet on Sora now,” they tweeted on December 6. “Finally finished asking some people.” In the same post, the leaker also noted that hopes of seeing Halo’s Master Chief would also be dashed following recent ‘leaked’ audio.

Unfortunately for fans, Sora joins a long list of ‘deconfirms’ that grows by the day. We already know that the fifth fighter won’t be from a number of Bandai Namco, Ubisoft, or Capcom titles. 

Names like Desmond Miles from Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell’s Sam Fisher, Dante from Devil May Cry, and Rayman have also been bandied about but it apparently won’t be any of them either.

Of course, there are still plenty of possibilities for Nintendo and they could very well throw in a curveball that leakers don’t get wind of. Until then, though, it remains to be seen as to where they go with the fifth DLC fighter.

How to get physical Smash Ultimate fighter invitations with My Nintendo

Smash Ultimate fans wanting to send an iconic invitation to a friend or family member can now get their chance as physical envelopes can now be shipped through My Nintendo.

A common motif in Smash is characters receiving an “invitation” with the game’s logo to indicate they had been chosen to join the star-studded fighting game.

This has been seen in many DLC fighter announcements such as Terry Bogard’s and Min Min’s trailers where multiple characters fight over the invitation with whoever receives it being added to the roster.

As such, the invitations have become an iconic piece of Smash and video game history, which is saying a lot considering they’re just pieces of paper.

The Smash invitation has become a series icon.

Be that as it may, fans can now earn these invitations through My Nintendo for 400 Platinum Points. Each set contains three white, green and blue cards, envelopes and stickers with the Smash logo.

In order to get the invitations, you’ll have to follow these steps:

1) Sign in to your Nintendo Account.
2) Redeem your Platinum Points for the item you’d like to get. You will receive a promo code.
3) Select “Access Now” to visit store.nintendo.com.
4) Select “Add to cart.”
5) Enter the code that you received in the pop-up.
6) Complete your transaction and your item will be shipped to you!

The cards come in white, blue and green.

Keep in mind, however, that this is a limited-time item so be sure to grab it while you can. Interestingly, the reward code will expire on March 8, 2021.

The expiry is note-worthy as it could be yet another sign pointing towards the release of DLC fighter 9. As Dexerto has previously reported, there are plenty of indicators so far suggesting that the next character will be released in March.

The next wave of amiibo consisting of Byletyh, Terry and Banjo is scheduled for March and in the past, all amiibo releases have coincided with a DLC fighter reveal.

Who could the final three fighters be?

March is also when the Tales Of Festival will begin, and signs have pointed to a Tales of Symphonia representative potentially being the next DLC fighter, so this is just one other thing to keep in mind.

In any case, be sure to pick up your own Smash invitations so you can invite whoever you want to the game while you still can.
