Smash pro Tweek names three characters he wants in Ultimate

Everyone from pros to casuals have different opinions when it comes to which new fighters should come to Super Smash Brothers. At DreamHack Atlanta, TSM star Gavin ‘Tweek’ Dempsey told Phil ‘EE’ Visu who he wants to join the cast next.

With multiple new fighters in development for Smash Ultimate after the release of Challenger Pack 5, it’s anyone’s guess as to who will be announced for Nintendo’s flagship esport next. However, if the Evo 2019 runner-up had his way, there are characters he thinks should not only be added but that he’d possibly even main.

“Is there anyone in particular you want to see come into the next one?” EE asked the Joker player.

“There’s three that are in my mind for the most part,” Dempsey revealed. “I think Geno [from Super Mario RPG] would be really cool. It’s not necessarily an attachment to him. Everyone else wants him and I’m just like ‘okay.’”

Geno is one of the protagonists from Super Mario RPG and is a fan-favorite fighter candidate for many in the Smash community.

“I like Mario characters,” Tweek confessed. “They have charm to them.”

The Glitch 6 champion went on to add he thinks Devil May Cry’s Dante would be a good fit for Smash Ultimate.

CapcomDevil May Cry’s Dante could be one hell of an addition to the Smash roster.

“I think he could be ridiculous and really fun,” Gavin continued. “I think he’d be really fitting for a player like me. Just based on how I see him as a character.”

Dante wouldn’t be the first Capcom character to make it into Smash, meaning there’s a fairly good chance Tweek’s wishes could come true in the future.

The final character the TSM legend wants added is Final Fantasy VII’s Sephiroth who he says would be amusing considered how he mained Cloud in Smash 4.

SquareSephiroth could be a great just for One Winged Angel alone.

“History repeating itself would be really funny,” Gavin laughed.

Sephiroth would be an incredible pick just because it would hopefully mean a version of One Winged Angel could be added to the music tracklist.

It’s possible any of Tweek’s picks make their way into Smash, even as the fifth characters in the Fighters Pass. As we’ve suggested, it’s looking likely the next fighter is revealed at the Game Awards in December. Only time will tell if the pro gets what he wants as an early Christmas gift.


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
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.
