During Nintendo's E3 2018 Treehouse event it was revealed that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will feature the largest roster of characters seen in the series' history. This is because every single Smash Bros. character will be in the game, as well as some new additions. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate boasted a roster of 65 characters initially, though this number has ballooned since.
On top of bringing back every single character from previous Smash Bros games, Super Smash Bros Ultimate is also adding some new ones into the mix. They are pulled from a mix of popular requests from fans, and iconic characters from new Nintendo series. Here's every new character in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. Note that some of the following characters have appeared in previous Smash games, but have been reskinned and given new movesets. We'll indicate clearly which ones are brand new, and which ones are reskins of previous characters.
There's a lot of characters in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, each with its own unique fighting style. There are changes to characters who are veterans to the series, as well as some brand-new faces.

We'll be adding them in and updating over time as we hear more about the game, but we'll be sure to get to your favorite in no time.
In recent iterations, Smash Bros received additional characters post-launch. These were added in as paid DLC, and would sometimes be the result of a voting process from the community.

Each will come with its own stage and music pack.
That's everything we know about the characters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. We'll be updating this guide as we get more info, so stay tuned for more details.
