With Pyra & Mythra now available as part of Challenger Pack 9, there are now only two characters of Fighters Pass Vol. 2 yet to be revealed and released. From now on, it is unknown if it will be a Fighters Pass Vol. 3 or other additional content for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate after the release of these last two warriors. Based on what Masahiro Sakurai has said on the subject before, it does not seem very likely at first glance.
However, fans have recently discovered something interesting on the Australian Nintendo website that suggests the existence of some kind of content coming after Challenger Pack 1
By replacing the last five digits of the numeric portion of the URL – “700500000xxxxx” – with “08502”, users can find themselves on the Joker Challenger Pack page. If you enter 08503, 08504, 08505 and 08506 in the URL instead, the user will be taken to the Hero Challenger Pack, Banjo & Kazooie Challenger Pack, Terry Bogard Challenger Pack and Byleth Challenger Pack pages, respectively.
All content for the first Fighters Pass is ordered on the website in the same way. It is also worth mentioning that since Piranha Plant and Rex Mii Costume are set to 08501 and 08507 respectively.
Similar Fighters Pass Vol. You can find 2 characters using this method. Min Min is 18967, Steve is 18968, Sephiroth is 18969 and Pyra & Mythra is 18970. Challenger Pack 10 and Challenger Pack 11 are listed as 18971 and 18972, but details about the identities of these characters can not be found on the site yet.
Just like with the Rex Mii Costume, the bonus content that comes with the acquisition of Fighters Pass Vol. 2, the Ancient Helm & Gear Mii costume set from Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, is listed after Fighters Pass Vol. 2 challengers. What is remarkable here is that the numeric part of the URL is listed as “70050000018974”, and not “70050000018973.” There’s actually a gap between Fighters Pass Vol. 2 characters and the bonus Ancient Helm & Gear Mii costume set.
Although there are those who speculate that this may be a kind of “bonus character” for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (something similar to the Piranha facility), this could also be another Mii costume, or even nothing at all.
It is worth mentioning that the Mii costumes that are part of the Mii costume waves 1-9 for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is listed separately from the contents of the first Fighters Pass and Fighters Pass Vol. 2.
Nintendo has a history of leaking unannounced content to Super Smash Bros.Ultimate like this before. We were able to learn that Smash Ultimate would receive Castlevania content in the base game, and an SNK representative for Challenger Pack 4 because of this.
But if we take Masahiro Sakurai’s words at face value, it would be better not to expect any extra DLC after the completion of Fighters Pass Vol. 2.
Masahiro Sakurai has stated several times that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s DLC development will end after the release of Fighters Pass 2’s content. “There are only five more DLC warriors,” Sakurai said during a Famitsu column released in July 2020 that followed Min Min unveiling. “Once released, the continuous Smash development from Smash for the 3DS and Wii U will finally come to an end.”
This was apparently confirmed during the “Mr. Sakurai Presents Pyra & Mythra” video presentation that preceded the release of Challenger Pack 9. “Only two DLC warriors are left,” Sakurai said. “That means there are only two ways to give you videos like this.”
For now, the safest route is to just take this rumor with a grain of salt. While more content for Super Smash Bros.Ultimate is within the scope of the game’s sales, it’s important to temper expectations in case there is nothing really planned.
