Another Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Hopeful DLC character is confirmed. Earlier this week, when a long-standing reputation and highly sought-after DLC character was apparently confirmed, it caught the surprising Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite users. A few days later, another character has been more or less confirmed, although this probably will not surprise many given how new the character is.
Next to Ghost of Tsushima, Final Fantasy 7 Remake, DOOM Eternal, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, and a few other games, Hades was on the 2020 GOTY list of many, and rightly so. A big part of the game’s appeal is the characters and the story. And at the center of the latter is Zagreus, the game̵
When asked if he would be Zagreus added, author and designer Greg Kasavin was, not surprisingly, down for crossover. That said, in the same breath, he always doubts that it will happen, at least anytime soon.
“On a personal level, I think it would be fantastic,” Kasavin said. “Smash does such a great job of adapting characters so faithfully, sometimes even more faithfully from the games where the characters come from. I’m a big NEO-GEO fighting game fan, and they brought Terry Bogard … so yeah, I think they would do an amazing job with that, but that’s one of those things since I’m sure they have a very long list. ! ”
As you can see, Kasavin does not directly confirm that we do not see Hades character comes to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, but he strongly suggests just as much. And as alluded to, this makes sense given that Hades just released last year. Furthermore, while the game was award-winning and popular, the character itself is far from iconic or on par with others waiting to be added.
