Fans have been waiting for months to learn who the fifth DLC fighter would be in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Well, the mystery was finally resolved this morning when Masahiro Sakurai, director of the Smash Bros. series, declared that Byleth would be the next addition to Ultimate’s roster. You can view the entire broadcast, below:

Byleth, the hero of Nintendo Switch tactical SRPG hit Fire Emblem: Three Houses, will become available for purchase on 01.28. The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass 2 will also become available that same day, which promises access to six, count ’em, six new upcoming DLC fighters.

There’s been a bit of chatter from some fans who are… less than thrilled to see yet another swordsman/Fire Emblem fighter enter the circle of combatants. On which side do you land, dear reader? Yay or nay for Byleth? Sound off in the comments and on social media!

    The weapon triangle finally gets represented! As such, this is it; I see no need to ever add any more identical-looking Fire Emblem characters to Smash ever again. ;^)

    Byleth looks fun and interesting, so that’s a win in my book. What’s really exciting is the extra fighter in the next season pass. (Come on, Untitled Goose!)

      I have to say, I definitely have a bit of Fire Emblem fatigue — in Smash anyway!

      I’m still waiting for Toad to step up and take his place as a fully playable character :)
