The Nintendo Direct may be just around the corner if a leaked screenshot from GameStop's stock process is to be believed. The Japanese gaming company's following statement might be brimming with fresh Switch statements and also come with a massive surprise for Super Smash Bros.. Ultimate fans: the DLC character that is next.

Editor /u/Blakebeats182 posted a photo of an inner GameStop catalog revealing 12 new Switch games set to launch in year. This possible announcement coincides with the expected fall edition of Banjo Kazooie into the Smash Bros.. Ultimate roster.

That's led many fans of the fighting gambling to speculate that Nintendo will use this opportunity to reveal the DLC fighter which will join the brawl. Ever since the E3 2019 Nintendo Direct on June 11 -- when both The Hero and Banjo & Kazooie have been disclosed -- there's been a flurry of self-proclaimed"leaks" and educated guesses across the internet.

Here are five of the possibilities of who the fifth Smash Bros.. Ultimate DLC fighter might be:

A Bandai Namco Character

Besides anticipating the Nintendo Direct, Blakebeats182 also requires a shot at predicting who they believe will be declared as the next DLC fighter. They stated and cast a broad net. Also, Smash Ultimate Upcoming Challenger 4 DLC Is Leaked On Nintendo Website

The Japanese game developer and publisher has been releasing games on Nintendo platforms because 2006 and have a character in Smash Bros.. Wii U in 2014 and there is no reason.

The publisher owns the Tekken, Gundam, and Soulcalibur franchises to name a few. Any character from the fighting game Tekken would fit directly into Smash Bros.. Ultimate, like how Ken and Ryu from Street Fighter have found their niche in the game.

The prediction of blakebeats182 is backed up by a rumor on the gambling forum NeoGAF, where an consumer claims he has inside information that Lloyd Irving from the Tales series is going to be the DLC fighter. Lloyd brandishes two swords, which might make him a exceptional swordsman in the crowded Smash roster and is the major protagonist of Tales of Symphonia.

Crash Bandicoot

The second guess of blakebeats182 is the Sony-owned mutated marsupial that is beloved, Crash Bandicoot. An alleged leak bolsters this prediction by GameFAQ user RaySquad.

That Crash and ultimate is high on the list of possibilities. The recent resurrection of the Crash series and the release of the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy and Crash Team Racing on the Nintendo Switch are two tips that Crash could very well make it.

Doomguy/Doom Slayer from Doom (2016)

Whether you know him as Doomguy, Doom Slayer, or simply that badass character DOOM, the unnamed protagonist might soon join the Smash Bros.. Ultimate fray to wreak havoc.

This possibility stems from the"Adeleine Fighters Pass Rumor" posted on 4chan at December 2018 that called The Hero and Banjo & Kazooie. It's likely that these were both guesses. After all, 4chan isn't precisely famous for its trustworthiness, but an ideal track record is a perfect history.

Ultimate cameo increase sales for Bethesda and Nintendo alike and could build hype around both games.

A Monster Hunter Character

This 4chan Adeleine rumor also implied that a personality from dream RPG series Monster Hunter would be joining the Smash Bros.. Ultimate roster.

They said the fighter will include both male and female skin options. This exact same poster that was anonymous correctly figured the alternative skins for The Hero all in their original article, but revealed that those particulars were lucky guesses.

The Monster Hunter franchise is owned by Capcom, a business which's collaborated with Nintendo for decades and has three of its personalities in the Smash Bros.. Ultimate (Mega Man, Ryu, and Ken). So a Dragon Hunter addition appears plausible.

Frisk From Undertail

At length, a 4chan rumor spotted in early August has made the spiciest assert of them all. The anonymous poster stated that American indie developer Toby Fox, Frisk the protagonist of Undertale, would be the DLC fighter in line.

They gave a rough timeline and stated that Banjo is around"80 percent complete" and could be published in early-to-mid September, which would line up with Blakebeats182's Direct predictions. The article said that Hero was completed a month before its launch, but needed the whole month of June for balance tweaks, making sense given the character's immense number of unique abilities.

Ultimate Director Masahiro Sakurai has expressed his love in the past for indie titles.
