Today, Nintendo announced a special Super Smash Bros. Ultimate presentation for this week. More specifically, it has announced a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate presentation that will feature series director Masahiro Sakurai providing an in-depth look at the game's upcoming DLC character, Hero, with 22 minutes of gameplay footage. Further, Nintendo will share when the protagonist of Dragon Quest XI will join the action. Naturally, some are speculating the character will stealth launch right after the video presentation is over, however, at the moment, this is nothing more than speculation.
The news comes way of a tweet from the official Nintendo Versus Twitter account, which promised plenty of new details for the fighter. However, it doesn't mention anything about the game's next DLC character after Hero, Banjo-Kazooie. In other words, this seems to be for Hero, and Hero only.
Whatever the case, the presentation will go down on July 30 -- aka this Tuesday -- at 9 a.m. EST. So, if you're looking forward to seeing Hero in the game, be sure to wake up nice and early to make sure you don't miss a beat. Or, alternatively, check back in with us later in the day for the all the salient details.

In other recent and related news, a couple new mods have added My Hero Academia's Izuku Midoriya and Marvel's Nova to the mix, who will probably never be added to the series, but hey, that's why we have mods.
