Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai has delivered a short new teaser related to the game’s upcoming DLC fighter. While the identities of these upcoming campaigners are still unknown, Sakurai has made it sound like we don’t have to wait much longer to learn who will be coming to the popular fighting game next.
Mentioned in a new column with Japanese publication Famitsu, Sakurai said that he is very hard at work with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate currently. In a translation by Kody Nokolo, Sakurai urged fans to wait a little longer to hear what comes next Smash next. A specific timetable for when a new announcement could come was not given, but based on the wording, it sounds like we could soon learn more about the game̵
Sakurai concludes the column by saying that this is something special for Smash. He also says that this is not all he has worked on, so stay a little longer! He tries his best. pic.twitter.com/eCLNaL0Pp4

With the confirmation that Nintendo will be shown at E3 2021, it is natural that this may be the place Nintendo chooses to talk more about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate given the publisher’s history. In fact, over the last day, there have been new reports that Nintendo will hold a massive Direct presentation that coincides with E3.
That said, E3 2021 is still two months away, which means there’s more than enough time for Nintendo to make an announcement related to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate before that time. However, it seems more likely that the company will choose to remain silent until the event expires to build up expectations. If E3 2021 comes and goes without new information about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, it would definitely be a surprise.
Every time Nintendo ends up revealing the next fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, who do you hope to join the game? Furthermore, do you think we get any announcements related to Smash Bros. before June? Remember to tell me your thoughts down in the comments or over on Twitter at @ MooreMan12.
As for the E3 2021 itself, the event will take place from 12 June and will last until the 15th.[H/T Dexerto]
