According to Newsweek fans are expecting Devil May Cry 3’s Dante to be the new fighter that will appear.
“The basis for this speculation revolves around a tease from the Devil May Cry team regarding the Nintendo Switch port of DMC 3.
Capcom already revealed that Devil May Cry 3 for Nintendo Switch will have a Styles switching feature similar to the fourth and fifth installments of the franchise. This allows players to switch between fighting styles mid-battle. Dante is known for using a sword and handguns, and being able to switch between his various fighting styles was one of the best features of 2019’s Devil May Cry 5.
Of course, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai can still announce Dante as the fifth DLC character, but at this point it would be coincidental. Smash Ultimate has already added Joker from Persona 5, The Hero from Dragon Quest, Banjo-Kazooie and Terry Bogard from King of Fighters as DLC.”
Sakurai has stated in the past about, characters that are not associated with Nintendo. An emblematic character is good enough for Nintendo, as it has been the case with Squall and Snake. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has receive plenty of additional content, since its release, four new fighters have joined.
Phil Spencer, the head of Xbox, previously stated that negotiating the inclusion of Banjo and Kazooie, an IP owned by Microsoft through its acquisition of Rare, was “an easy deal to make” thanks to Microsoft’s strong partnership with Nintendo.
