As a result, 96% of the awards will be handed out in two minutes on the preshow instead of the planned 75%.

Smash Bros Ultimate's 9th DLC character is going to be revealed at an alleged awards show.

Nintendo have confirmed the reveal of the next character from Fighter's Pass 2 will be held tonight at "The Game Awards". The show itself begins with a pregame event at 6:30 p.m. ET.

The 2017 version of this event saw the announcement of the second DLC character Joker, who also has a game going up for preorder around the start time of the event. Last year, Nintendo announced Bravely Default II and Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 DLC.

I look forward to being utterly underwhelmed, as has been the standard of quality with the 2nd Fighter's Pack so far.

Ten V-bucks says it's someone from Fortnite.

Would be worth it for the meltdowns alone.

Personally I'm going to predict Crash followed by a Crash 4 Switch port to go with it.  We got Banjo and Terry in the first round of DLC, so Crash would fill a similar spot this time.

Crash would be an acceptable addition. He's been on Nintendo devices & unquestionably was once a major gaming icon.

Better him than Master Chief, a "character" I'm increasingly nervous Nintendo might actually add, considering their relationship with Microsoft.

Perfectly fine with Crash especially to continually make PlayStation All-Stars look even worse. Lara Croft would similarly fit the bill and there would be more female representation.

I kind of want Doomguy if only for the Doom/Animal Crossing memes.

As long as the character originated from a video game (i.e. not Goku), I’m fine with it. All the choices so far have made sense even if I don’t give a fork about Terry Bogard or Steve.

Not mad that it’s Sephiroth though a little surprised Nintendo went back to the Final Fantasy VII well. I wonder if Square Enix is still going to be stingy with the music. 😒

This was my first question as well.  The character is cool, but if SE is going to be stingy with the music AGAIN, then it's a disappointment.
