Smash Ultimate’s fifth DLC fighter has been a contentious topic for many. Guesses and hopes are all over the place, ranging from Master Chief, to Geno, to the Doom Slayer. Unlike previous DLC fighters, nothing concrete has been leaked as of yet, so the presentation should be an interesting one. Considering the final fighter for the current Fighter Pass is slated for release by February 2020, it’s highly likely that the mystery character will be released either right after the presentation, or shortly after in the coming weeks.
The stream will clock in at roughly 35 minutes long. You’ll be able to watch it on Nintendo’s official YouTube channel.
