The subsequent DLC Character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate may possibly be an SNK character, according to a new file uploaded to Nintendo’s UK site.
Very first noticed by Twitter user @PushDustin and shared by Twitter user @Nibellion, the text is relatively typical legalese explaining ownership rights more than Smash Ultimate’s fourth DLC Challenger Pack. At the bottom, having said that, is a copyright from the SNK Corporation.
Challenge Pack four in #SmashBrosUltimate will apparently be a character from SNK.

SNK is synonymous with the Neo-Geo cabinets of time previous, as nicely as many fighting game franchises. Metal Slug, King of Fighters, and the not too long ago released Samurai Shodown all fall below SNK’s umbrella.
SNK also released a 40th anniversary collection of some of its most enduring franchises back in late 2018.
SNK also shocked the audience at EVO 2019 when it was announced that Soul Calibur six would be getting Samurai Shodown cover character Haohmaru as portion of its upcoming DLC.
A new Nintendo Direct presentation has been rumored for the close to future, but has not but been confirmed. If we’re going to hear much more about Smash Ultimate’s newest character, it will most probably be throughout Nintendo’s subsequent presentation, provided that we’re nearing the finish of summer time convention season. Nintendo’s website says that Challenger Pack four is scheduled for distribution by February 29, 2020. In addition to the new character, players are also acquiring a new stage and new music.
Joseph Knoop is a writer/producer for IGN, and he will actually die if Metal Slug guy gets it.
