1) There's apparently a lot of Nintendo Switch Online maintenance happening today through Wednesday for various titles. 2) The Nintendo France Twitter account does a weekly "how to play Smash" video, said next week will be a special episode and apparently teased Hero. 3) DQ Builders 2 releases worldwide later this week. 4) People are reporting that they're seeing ads for Hero on various ad-driven sites (Facebook, Google, etc.)
I'd laugh if a Mortal Kombat character got in only for all their attacks to be Friendships.
At this point I have no idea who the final two characters could be. If I had to put money on it, I'd say Minecraft and either Crash Bandicoot or Rayman are the two most likely, but I wouldn't bet on anything less than 20:1 odds on them.
Me personally, I'd probably be happiest with...
First party (seems less likely at this point) 5) Dark Matter --- Kirby 4) Karate Joe --- Rhythm Heaven 3) Min Min --- ARMS 2) Medusa --- Kid Icarus 1) Saki Amamiya (and Airan Jo echo/costume) --- Sin & Punishment
Third party 5) Ryu Hayabusa --- Ninja Gaiden / Dead or Alive 4) Phoenix Wright --- Ace Attorney 3) Tron Bonne --- Mega Man Legends / Misadventures of Tron Bonne 2) Kawase Umihara --- Umihara Kawase 1) Cadence --- Crypt of the Necrodancer (at least give us the Cadence of Hyrule music for the Zelda stages!)
