Nintendo got 'trigger happy' with Smash Ultimate reveals

All Smash Bros. fans are all wondering how many, and what newcomers will be revealed before the official launch of Ultimate. Well, Smash Bros. Director Masahiro Sakurai has said that the company may have got slightly "trigger happy" with the reveals so things may slow down a bit.


Masahiro Sakurai has taken to his weekly column in the magazine Famitsu, within his content piece he addresses what Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fans should expect announcement wise leading up towards the December release. Here is what he had to say: "We announced Isabelle in the Nintendo Direct... however, it would be a mistake to think that the new character announcements will keep going [at this pace] until Smash Bros. [Ultimate] releases. We may have been a little trigger-happy so we'll be living modestly from here on out."

This information is not surprising at all, we have seen quite a lot of announcements for the coming smash title, to summarize we have seen five newcomers within the last couple of months. Inklings, Ridley, Simon Belmont, King K. Rool and the most recent announcement Isabelle. Not to mention the echo fighters we have also acquired, for those that don't remember we have got Daisy, Dark Samus, Chrom and Richter Belmont.

After all of these announcements in such a short amount of time you can see that it isn't really surprising that Nintendo will have to dial back their reveals before the official launch of Ultimate, but that doesn't mean that they have nothing up their sleeve. We still should expect a few more newcomers, as always there is still quite minimal to go off but the rumors and popularity are pointing towards the reveal of Shadow as an echo fighter to Sonic and maybe even Skull Kid from Majora's Mask. It is still completely undecided and Nintendo won't reveal anything until they are ready, keep in mind this is all speculation at this point. The last leaker with credibility said that we would see Incineroar, Ken and content from Minecraft, check that story out here if you haven't caught up with that.
