RANDOM TIME! - What characters are most likely for Smash Ultimate's Fighters Pass 2 when predicting using math?

Smashingly interesting!

Predictions for the next character to be added to the Super Smash Bros. series always go off the rails. There are so many possibilities, it seems impossible to find a definitive answer without Nintendo directly revealing who it is. But what if you were to predict using nothing but pure mathematics? That is what the YouTuber "Backseat Game Development" did, and the result is highly interesting, but also insane! Check out the extraordinarily well put together video above to find out who is "most likely" for Smash Ultimate's Fighter Pass 2 using only math.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - Teach Us, Teach! Weapon Training Spirit event now live, runs until Feb. 10


- 13th Tourney Event is called “Teach Us, Teach! Weapon Training”, and it goes live on February 7th. This one features fighters that use bows, lances, and axes (available until February 10)

Internal character codename for Byleth in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was "Master"

Internal codenames are a common practice for projects in development at different game studios. DLC characters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are no exception, and it's interesting to see the different codenames that were used for each fighter. Joker from Persona 5 was known as "Jack", Hero from Dragon Quest was known as "Brave", and so on and so forth. With the recent launch of Challenger Pack 5, Byleth from Fire Emblem Three Houses is the latest character for us to receive previously publicly hidden information. According to PushDustin on Twitter, Byleth was internally referred to as "Master", which is likely a translation of "Sensei".

DOOM Eternal director says they've talked to Nintendo about 'DOOM Slayer' in Smash Bros. Ultimate, but its 'never gone anywhere'

Is this speculated character doomed?

Doom Slayer (commonly referred to as "Doomguy") has always been a highly speculated character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Due to the legacy of the DOOM franchise, and how recognizable the character is across the gaming community, the demon destroyer would be an excellent addition to Smash. Recently, Marty Stratton, director of Doom Eternal, was interviewed by Metro, where he was asked about the rumors of Doom Slayer being added to the game. According to his response, discussions have been had, but "it’s never gone anywhere serious." Check out the full interview snippet below!

What about the rumours of Doom Slayer being in Smash Bros.? [This was a couple of days before the Byleth announcement] Do you think it could ever happen?

MS: I don’t know. We’ve asked them.

You asked them?

MS: Yeah.

Well, that’s how Solid Snake got in it. Would they discount it just because of the gore and violence though?

MS: I dunno. You would honestly have to ask them. We’ve never been approached and said, ‘Hey can Doomguy be in Smash Bros.?’ But we’re open-minded if they wanna ask. But we hear it all the time [from fans]. Who would say no? [laughs]

But you did ask them?

MS: We’ve had… I don’t even know who talked to who, but we’ve bantered with them. We have a great relationship with them through bringing Doom 2016 to Switch and that kind of stuff. So we have great people over there but it’s one of those things where it’s like, ‘Wouldn’t it be cool?’ But it’s never gone anywhere serious, so we’ll see.

PR - Byleth From Fire Emblem: Three Houses Joins The Roster of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (EU)

Professor at Garreg Mach Monastery Revealed as Newest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC Fighter, With News of Six More Fighters in Development, while Fire Emblem: Three Houses – Cindered Shadows DLC arrives 13th Februar


Combat class is in session! Byleth, the renowned mercenary and professor from the Fire Emblem series, is ready to teach Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players a lesson in battle. In a video released today, Masahiro Sakurai, the director of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, unveiled for the first time the battle-hardened Fire Emblem character in action, who will enter the arena on 29th Jan. as the game’s newest fighter. Mr Sakurai demonstrated Byleth’s unique ranged play style, and revealed the Garreg Mach Monastery stage and 11 new music tracks from the Fire Emblem series, all coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch later this month. Meanwhile the Fire Emblem: Three Houses – Cindered Shadows DLC arrives on 13th February as part of the Fire Emblem: Three Houses Expansion Pass.

The new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate content will be available to players who own the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass or purchase Challenger Pack 5 separately.* In addition to Byleth’s reveal, new details were announced for the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2, which will include six more fighters currently under development. By pre-purchasing Fighters Pass Vol. 2, players will get access to six more yet-to-be-announced Challenger Packs as they release. Each pack includes one new fighter, one stage and multiple music tracks. Those who purchase Fighters Pass Vol. 2 will also receive an exclusive costume for Mii Swordfighter: The Ancient Soldier Gear from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
To view the video in its entirety, visit the Nintendo UK YouTube channel.

Also announced during the live stream, fans of Fire Emblem: Three Houses should prepare to meet the Officers Academy’s secret fourth house, the Ashen Wolves, when the Fire Emblem: Three Houses – Cindered Shadows DLC arrives on 13th February as part of the Fire Emblem: Three Houses Expansion Pass.

Byleth joins the ranks as the 80th video game character included as a playable fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which features the biggest crossover of video game characters in history. Drawing upon Byleth’s chivalric exploits in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, their inclusion in the roster will change the tide of every battle they appear in, with clever strategic choices motivating each defensive posture and offensive attack in their move set. With the Sword of the Creator and three other Heroes’ Relics at hand, prevailing in combat will often come down to selecting the right moments to hold ground or advance.

Byleth’s accompanying stage, the Garreg Mach Monastery, also features a variety of cameos from popular characters in Fire Emblem: Three Houses, including Edelgard from the Black Eagles, Claude from the Golden Deer and Dimitri from the Blue Lions.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will also receive a new Spirit Board, which features Spirits of most of the cameo guest characters from Fire Emblem: Three Houses, along with a new classic mode route, “A Heroic Legacy,” which highlights classic Fire Emblem stages throughout the series’ storied history.

Additionally, a new Mii Fighter costume inspired by the run-and-gun indie game Cuphead will be available for purchase on 29th January. Players who purchase the Cuphead Mii Fighter costume will also receive a new music track, Floral Fury, which was originally featured in the game’s classic Cagney Carnation boss battle.

Finally, two fighters from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will have amiibo figures available for purchase at select retailers beginning on 17th Jan: Samus’s mysterious doppelganger, Dark Samus, and Simon Belmont’s whip-wielding echo fighter, Richter.

Additional new fighters, stages and music will also be coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate through the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2. Players can also continue to purchase the current Fighters Pass for €24,99 to gain access to the first five Challenger Packs. Playable fighters Joker, Hero, Banjo & Kazooie and Terry Bogard are all available now, with Byleth joining on 29th January. For only €5,99, players can also purchase each of the Challenger Packs individually.
