Opinions: Smash Bros. Ultimate Speculation – DLC!

Nintendo confirmed there would be five character/stage/music packs coming to Ultimate over the next year or so, and since I am DYING to play this game as it is I want to speculate on what they might be. This time I’m going to revive some of my most wanted characters who were not deconfirmed as…

Opinion: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Final Direct Reaction
