Smash Ultimate players are losing their minds over the Sans costume

The September Nintendo Direct unveiled a lot of news about the future of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but perhaps all of that has been overshadowed by the announcement of Undertale’s Sans as a costume.

During a 40-minute Direct, we learned Banjo Kazooie would be available immediately following the broadcast, received confirmation of Terry Bogard, and even found out Nintendo will be adding in even more fighters in the future.


However, many fans found themselves getting caught up on the fact that Sans from Undertale would be making an appearance in the game as a skin for the Mii Fighter.

NintendoBanjo’s debut in Smash Ultimate was hyped up, but not as much as Sans apparently.

That’s right, fans are hyped up for new content that isn’t even a new fighter, but is just a skin instead.


This means he doesn’t have any special moves or anything of the sort, but that hasn’t stopped fans from being extremely pumped for his release. It definitely helps that Undertale is such a beloved title and also available on the Nintendo Switch.

Perhaps a big part of this is because Terry leaked ahead of time and fans already knew about Banjo. Sans caught everyone by surprise.

Just take a look at some of the reactions fans have been having about him. The majority of them are extremely positive, and that’s putting it modestly. Just imagine if he wasn’t just a simple reskin.


You have to admit, it is cool to see a character such as Sans, an indie character, make his way into Smash Ultimate alongside the likes of characters like Solid Snake, Cloud Strife, and Banjo.

At this point, it’s really hard to think of what Nintendo could come up with next to top this.

The Smash reveals have been major surprises so far and we’re sure Nintendo will be able to cook something interesting up.


In the meantime, the next release is Terry Bogard in November, but no date was offered for his debut as of yet. 


Minecraft Smash Ultimate leaker teases Ryu Hayabusa DLC fighter

An established Super Smash Bros Ultimate leaker who has leaked several of the game’s fighters before and after launch, including Minecraft’s Steve, has returned with some comments on Ninja Gaiden’s Ryu Hayabusa.

Vergeben, who is one of the most reputable leakers in the Smash community having leaked many of the game’s fighters, was asked about rumors of Hayabusa joining the roster.


The Ninja Gaiden protagonist has long been a fan-favorite to join the Nintendo fighting game, and has even been rumored. Amusingly, he had been discussed even before Fighters Pass Volume 2, along with Minecraft content.

“I remember you mentioned in the past that you heard that there were talks about Ryu Hayabusa being one of the fighters but in the end, he may have been delayed to enter the second wave of DLC,” a user remarked the leaker on GameFaqs.

Ryu has been rumored for a long time.

“Now that Minecraft content finally came and as how Sakurai mentioned he reworked all stages to add the blocks gimmick to the game, it is possible that Hayabusa may also be coming?” the user asked.

To this, Vergeben simply replied: “Stay tuned?”

“I’ll keep looking into it. But the discussions did happen with Koei Tecmo in regards to Smash,” he continued, seemingly confirming that Koei Tecmo was in fact in talks to bring a character to the game.

He further added that due to Nintendo’s positive relationship with Koei Tecmo, it’s unlikely that the discussions “ fell through and didn’t result in anything.”

As it’s been established, the discussions to get Minecraft into Smash took five years, so it’s clear that adding certain characters can be a long process.

This all said, the discussions with Koei Tecmo may also have potentially resulted in a different representative joining Smash Ultimate such as a character from Dead or Alive, Fatal Frame, or even Dynasty Warriors.


Only time will tell if this ends up being yet another thing that Vergeben has been right about.
