Known Smash Ultimate leaker Sabi has shared some rather unfortunate news about Capcom’s Devil May Cry protagonist Dante as it pertains to the final slot in the game’s Fighters Pass.

On November 26, Sabi explained how he had heard that Dante was “heavily rumored” for Smash, but wanted to speak with a trusted source about the rumor in an attempt to confirm it.

After speaking with someone with insider knowledge, Sabi relayed that the rumors were unfounded. At least as far as the fifth fighter was concerned.

Dante in Smash would have lined up nicely with the news that a special edition of Devil May Cry 3 would be coming to the Nintendo Switch in February 2020, around the same time the fifth fighter is scheduled to be released.

The news may hit hard for professional Smash player Gavin ‘Tweek’ Dempsey, who told Dexerto he wanted to see Dante added to the game during an interview at DreamHack Atlanta.

Devil May Cry Director Hideaki Itsuno had previously spoken about the possibility of Dante appearing in Nintendo’s flagship fighting game.

“Well, think about it… I’m pretty sure that they… all the characters in Smash at least have some games on a Nintendo platform, right?” Itsuno told VG 24/7 back in February.

CapcomTweek may cry that Dante isn’t Smash’s fifth DLC fighter.

While he noted that Final Fantasy VII’s Cloud appeared in the game, Final Fantasy itself had a rich history on Nintendo.

“Well, that’s the thing. Devil May Cry has never been on a Nintendo platform. So it seems like the first thing to do would be to get Capcom to put Devil May Cry on a Nintendo platform in some way, shape, or form – whatever game that might be,” he added.

Devil May Cry released for the Nintendo Switch a few months later and now has a special edition of the third game lined up.

It would appear that, according to Itsuno’s criteria, Devil May Cry would have enough of a presence on Nintendo to warrant a fighter in Smash.

Even though Sabi has dismissed Dante as the fifth fighter, there’s still the possibility that he makes his way into Smash as part of a second fighters pass.

Capcom also recently had Resident Evil get some Smash representation in the form of collectible Spirits, which will be coming to the game on November 29.

CapcomDemons hate him!

While the fifth fighter remains a mystery, many possible fighters have been debunked by the likes of Sabi and Vergeben. They include Doomguy, Geno, Ryu Hayabusa, Gordon Freeman, or anyone “Nippon Ichi Software related.”

Nintendo is expected to reveal the new fighter at The Game Awards on December 12 – the same event where the company unveiled Persona’s Joker as Smash DLC.


xQc slams”trash” Smash Ultimate Online after lag completely ruins game

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 returns to Twitch after ban
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.
