https://www.eventhubs.com/news/2019/sep/10/masahiro-sakurais-words-seem-indicate-presence-more-third-party-characters-after-fighters-pass-super-smash-bros-ultimate/There's evidence slowly mounting, suvch as the removal of Beware The Forest Mushrooms from a well known music channel on YT in much the same way Megalovania was and Palutina mentioning MegaSmylax in Plant's guidance dialog. Combine this with Yoster Isle getting referenced in Yoshi's crafted world and one can assume square and Nintendo are bros. again right now, :shrug
Plus: There's a certain leak that the Geno thread on smashboards think may be tied to Geno. A picture of a starling bird released by a well known source (accidentally.) One trusted poster confirmed that it does indeed represent SOMETHING but is under strict orders not to say what.
most dont think its geno.....but me?
:hutz :hutz :hutz
:cudi @Lumpy McRighteous ; I TOLD YOU IT WAS MOUNTING!
So yeah, it looks like "season 2" of Ultimate's DLC is gonna consist of 3rd party reps like the Fighters Pass. That being said, Geno is from the Mario series despite being created by Squeenix; couple that with him already being a spirit, and I still just don't see him making the cut. However, I'd be fine being wrong if that meant Bandana Dee got in as a fighter, too.
