Nintendo has just started its official Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Direct to reveal who the fifth DLC fighter will be for their Fighter Pass.
The livestream began with all the action, straight away revealing that Byleth would be the new fighter to join the already incredibly large roster. Byleth will stand as a representative of the new Fire Emblem game 'Fire Emblem: Three Houses". Masahiro Sakurai, the director of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, said that not even some employees at Nintendo knew about this fighter, as he says it was under the topmost secrecy.
Sakurai says that Byleth will be arriving in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on January 28th for $5.99. If you own the Fighters Pass, you will just need to download an update and jump right into the action. It doesn't really come as a major surprise that Nintendo decided to go with a fighter from Fire Emblem: Three Houses as that only just released on the Nintendo Switch.
