I'll be in class but at least I can watch it a few hours later I guess.

How dare you with the terrible wording.

This isn't a Direct. I already knew about this live stream but thanks to your thread I thought this was the fabled January Direct we're all waiting for.

Hmm, I just assumed it was a Direct, weird. I guess it's not a Direct.

It's essentially a Direct though.

I mean a Smash Direct perhaps but you didn't say that ;)

Any guesses on who the DLC character is?

Look at that dark, gloomy color scheme. Doom Slayer, no doubt... is what I want to believe but know in my heart isn't going to happen.

Honestly, I don't know what to expect. The fighters have been all over the place.

There's no way I'm waking up at 6am to watch this, so it's probably going to be spoiled for me when I go to search for the Direct on YouTube.

@nate38

This would blow my mind! Complete with Troggle assist trophy!

Although I knew him as Word Muncher, but same difference.

Please don't be Dante. IDGAF about Dante and does he even have any connection to Nintendo??

I've seen his name come up a lot in rumors about this. Better not be true.

Hmm... I can just barely squeeze it in before a meeting. Stupid meeting.

@Anand

I set a meeting for myself and had a potential 10 am one moved so I wouldn't have to miss the post-discussion, lol.

With how random some of these characters have been it's anyone's guess. I do think it will be a third party character though to keep with the trend of this fighter pack.

I really hope it isn't Dante. I do think Geralt from The Witcher is a possibility. He has also appeared in Soul Calibur VI.

I do hope Fighter Pack 2 will feature some Nintendo first party characters again though. Since then we've had characters from ARMS, Rex from Xenoblade Chronicles 2, characters (Byleth?) from Fire Emblem: Three Houses, a host of new Pokemon, and Ring Fit Adventurer (anyone else kind of hoping for a quirky unexpected character like this?).

@CPA Wei Needs more bad guys in general, so the main villain from Ring Fit would be awesome.

Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden. You read it here first, folks.

My guess for tomorrow is a character that Nintendo wouldn't feel that comfortable showing off at the Game Awards. So perhaps a very quirky and/or Japanese-centric character. Sounds good to me! Pretty much all my mains are that!

@CPA Wei

I think we have enough Pokemon and Fire Emblem, but there are still some 1st-party characters I'd love to see. Andy (Advance Wars), a Rhythm Heaven rep, and a long-overdue new Zelda character (Impa, Pig Ganon, or even Lynel would be my choices) would get more hyped than almost any third-party.

@GameDadGrant

He'd be pretty cool, even though I'm not really into the latter-day Ninja Gaidens. Hopefully he'd pack his classic bright blue ninja gi from the NES era! Very stealthy!

@GameDadGrant Have they done any Tecmo characters yet?! I think it will be another company that has never had Smash rep yet, so this could be the case...

What's wrong with having Dante in? He seems like he could have a cool moveset.

Alright, that's the shittiest character reveal in a long time. Pretty much as bad as a Pokémon. Good thing it's not the last. I think I'd rather sleep than keep watching this boring presentation, so I'm going to do that.

Not the most exciting choice but I'm glad it wasn't Dante or a Monster Hunter. They could still get in though.. They still have time to disappoint me.

Character looks cool and the stage looks awesome.
