Nintendo this morning confirmed that it would, in fact, reveal a new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC fighter tonight at The Game Awards. There had been rumors and talk of a reveal happening in the near future, and with The Game Awards being the last major gaming event for the year, it seemed the most likely suspect. As for what character might ultimately be revealed, it's anyone's guess at this point.
Popular suspects and fan requests include the likes of Kingdom Hearts protagonist Sora, Doom's Doom Slayer, Geno from Super Mario RPG, and even maybe a character from Epic Games' Fortnite like Jonesy. There are still several remaining slots open on the DLC roster, however, so there's really no telling exactly what Nintendo might show off tonight.
For his own part, host and producer Geoff Keighley isn't giving any further hints about who the new fighter might be, it seems:
