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

The Fighters Pass in Super Smash Bros Ultimate allows fans to get their hands on some additional bonus content including fighters, stages, and music related to each character. With the bundle confined to five fighter slots, fans have been running rampant with their suggestions for who the fifth character should be in the popular title. 

A whole raft of names have been speculated such as Rayman, Desmond Miles from Assassin’s Creed, Splinter Cell’s Sam Fisher, and even Dante from Capcom’s Devil May Cry, but they’ve all been quashed by other leakers.

NintendoFour of the five Fighters Pass characters have been revealed.

After voice actor Scott Menville, the voice of Lloyd Irving in Tales of Symphonia teased an NDA project, Smash Bros fans immediately jumped to the conclusion that he could be working on voice lines for the character to become a fighter.

However, that won’t be the case. Popular leaker Sabi tweeted out the de-confirmation of the rumor after stating that they would look into the rumors. “So after contacting a third person now, it seems my (Discord) server caught wind of how I feel the chances are of Tales of in Smash,” they tweeted. 

While some fans did get what Sabi was hinting at, the leaker followed up with the dreaded confirmation that plenty of players didn’t want to hear. 

“By the way, yes. It seems like nobody has heard of Lloyd as FP5,” they tweeted, before noting that the JRPG character could come after the Fighter Pass period has passed.  

Who the fifth fighter will be, as of now, remains a mystery but more and more debunked names are cropping up by the day. These include Doomguy, Geno, Ryu Hayabusa, and Gordon Freeman – a clearly wide-ranging selection.

Fans are expecting Nintendo to reveal the fifth fighter at The Game Awards on December 12. The developers previously revealed Persona’s Joker character at the same event before launching it in-game.

Ryan Garcia might be a professional in the boxing ring, but now he’s looking to step into the Super Smash Bros. scene and take on one of the most dominant champions, MkLeo.

Ryan Garcia has been making headlines for the wrong reasons lately. However, it looks like he wants to turn a new leaf and win over some fans in the Super Smash Bros. community.

Surprisingly, he has been a dedicated fan and player of the game for many years now. “My love for smash started with [Super Smash Bros. Melee],” he said. “I watched the documentary and been playing ever since.” 

Ryan Garcia has been vocal about his dissatisfaction with Nintendo after they shut down The Big House. Now, it seems like he’s willing to put on a spectacle for the community and take on one of the biggest names in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Ryan Garcia is one of the best boxers in his division.

“I challenge MkLeo to [a] 30,000$ [Super Smash Bros.] match,” he said.

If that wasn’t exciting enough, he also called for it to be a best-of-two series, meaning fans would get more of a show.

Leonardo López ‘MkLeo’ Pérez is widely considered to be the best Super Smash Bros. Ultimate player. He’s always risen above and beyond any challenge, and it wasn’t any different this time around. “Hey, I’m down to make this happen,” he said.

Naturally, he’d be the heavy favorite in Super Smash Bros. It’s the equivalent of him stepping into a ring against Ryan Garcia, except the other way around. Still, Ryan Garcia was keen to get the ball rolling and asked him to “set a date.”

So, it seems like the two of them have made a gentlemen’s agreement over the bout. Keep in mind, though, that nothing is set in stone until an official announcement has been made. 

Still, it’s an exciting prospect and one that Super Smash Bros. fans from all around the world are looking forward to.

Of course, they expect it to be heavily one-sided, but Ryan Garcia might have a couple of tricks up his sleeve.
