A new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate report is currently making the rounds that could have big implications for its DLC. Emphasis on "could," here. The popular video game still has four character DLC slots left to fill, and there's been no word of more characters coming after this. But if the latest hubbub hints at the possible inclusion of a Fortnite character, which has been a popular rumor for some time now.
Tapping into this, a new "leak" has surfaced from an unlikely source: FireMonkey, a prominent Fortnite leaker. Recently, Fortnite creative director Donald Mustard chatted up Geoff Keighley, the host of The Game Awards, over a Zoom call that was presented in front of a limited audience and that hasn't been shared online yet. However, according to a source FireMonkey deems "credible," one of the topics that came up during the interview was Fortnite DLC in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Responding to this, Mustard reportedly declined to comment, noting he can't talk about the topic, which of course immediately suggests there's something to talk about. In other words, as a result, many fans now think a Fortnite character -- presumably Jonesy, the face of the franchise -- is coming to the game as a future DLC character.

Of course, take all of this with a grain of salt. Not only is nothing here official, but even if Mustard said this, it doesn't automatically mean a Fortnite character is coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. There could be talks, but who knows if these talks will go anywhere.
At the moment of publishing, no party implicated -- Nintendo, Epic Games, Donald Mustard, or Geoff Keighley -- have commented on this leak. If any of these parties do provide a comment, however, we will be sure to update the story with whatever is provided.
