Super Smash Bros Ultimate for the Nintendo Switch was a big deal when it was unveiled at E3 2018, and it's going to be a bigger deal when it launches this December. What happens after the release hype fades, though? Nintendo is considering DLC for the game, but it's not ready to commit to any definite answers about post-launch plans.
IGN talked to Nintendo's Bill Trinen about Super Smash Bros Ultimate's release and future during an interview yesterday at San Diego Comic-Con (thanks, Nintendolife). DLC for the upcoming Smash title certainly seems to be in the realm of possibility, though Trinen says the game's director, Masahiro Sakurai, is understandably focused on getting the title finished, working, and out the door.
"Obviously [DLC] was a big part of the Wii U game, but part of Mr Sakurai's approach is really focusing on getting the game done, and then once he has the game done, he'll start to make some decisions about what he wants to do with other characters or DLC, things like that," Trinen said. "Whether or not he decides to do DLC again, or whether or not he decides this is the ultimate edition and there's nothing more I can fit in there - we'll have to see as we get closer to launch."
We'll be on top of any definitive DLC news as soon as it comes to light. Heck, we've been chronicling everything worth knowing about the game up until this point. Check out our Super Smash Bros Ultimate guides for proof.
