It feels like it’s actually been a while since we last sat down and mulled over a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate reputation – probably because the majority who find their way to the internet are completely false nonsense – but here is one that maybe just have something to do for it.
A Reddit user named RiuBert has theorized that the game’s second batch of DLC, ‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2̵
As RiuBert explains in his post, all games, DLC and product packages have a unique code (known as an NSUID) on Nintendo’s official website. With the first set of DLC characters, from Piranha Plant to the first Fighters Pass’ latest addition, Byleth, the DLC codes are ordered chronologically from 70050000008501 to 70050000008506. After that, the bonus Rex Mii costume is offered to those who buy the first Fighters Pass, which ends in ‘8507’.
(As a head up, these links will take you to Nintendo’s New Zealand website, where NSUID tags are displayed directly within the page’s URL).
Now things get a little more interesting when we look at Fighters Pass Vol. 2. As before, the warriors are listed chronologically (Min Min is 70050000018967, up to Pyra / Mythra at 70050000018970, with ‘18971’ and ‘18972’ reserved for the two unannounced characters ). This time, however, the Pass’ bonus Ancient Helm + Gear costume reward is not listed directly afterwards, with an NSUID of 70050000018974, instead of ending with ‘18973’. Instead, this mysterious ‘18973’ is “currently unavailable”. Still with us?
It then appears that Nintendo still has something to announce after the sixth DLC fighter. Immediate, over-excited thoughts jump to one potential seventh fighter jet, which may well be true, although it may also relate to an echo fighter, another bonus suit, or something completely different.
What do you think? Is there something in this? Could you see Nintendo pulling out a surprise figure to end things with a bang? Let’s avoid getting the hope up also much in the comments below.
