The ‘Final Battle’ Smash Bros Direct was announced during the recent September Nintendo Direct. And reminding fans about the unmissable date at the start of this week the @NintendoUK Twitter posted: “Tomorrow at 15:00 (UK time), #SmashBrosUltimate director Masahiro Sakurai will reveal the game’s final fighter. The fighter’s release date and final Mii Fighter costumes will also be revealed!”

The account added: “The presentation will be roughly 40 minutes long, and it will be the last presentation about #SmashBrosUltimate.”

For years now there have plenty of rumours swirling around potential new characters heading to Smash Bros.

And, with so many rumours swirling around who could get added to Super Smash Bros Ultimate next, there will surely be plenty of contenders that miss out.

One character that fans have been asking for years to be added to Smash Bros is Luigi’s arch-nemesis, and Wario’s BFF, Waluigi.

However, there are plenty of other third-party characters that could also get added to Smash Bros instead.

Among the characters tipped to be getting added to Smash Bros are Crash Bandicoot, Doom’s Doomguy, Ninja Gaiden’s Ryu Hayabusa, Fortnite’s Jonesy and Halo’s Master Chief.

But a recent leak could have revealed who the next Smash Bros DLC character will be.

After the September Direct which announced the October Smash broadcast was held a leak from a few months ago, which appeared on notorious internet message board 4chan, took on new significance.

This alleged leak, posted back in July, claimed Sora from Kingdom Hearts would be the final DLC character for Smash.

A poster wrote: “Actual info here: I work for Disney Music, Nintendo called last week to request rights to several tracks from Kingdom Hearts to use in a “digital event” on October 5.

“Sora is the last Smash character”.

So far 10 DLC characters have been released for Super Smash Bros Ultimate (Image: NINTENDO)

Given the track record of 4chan when it comes to ‘leaks’, this post wasn’t given too much attention at the time.

However, this 4chan poster correctly revealed the date for the Nintendo October event months before it was officially announced.

Which could add credibility to the claims that Sora will be heading to Smash Bros.

If the keyblade wielder does head to SSBU then the chirpy Kingdom Hearts hero will be joining plenty of other Square Enix characters.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate already includes Cloud and Sephiroth from Final Fantasy 7 and Dragon Quest’s Hero.

So far, Fighters Pass 1 and 2 have added plenty of great DLC characters to Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

The DLC characters added to SSBU to date are Persona 5’s Joker, Dragon Quest’s Hero, Banjo & Kazooie, Fatal Fury’s Terry Bogard, Fire Emblem’s Byleth, Arms’s MinMin, Minecraft’s Steve and Alex, Final Fantasy 7’s Sephiroth, Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s Pyra and Mythra and Tekken’s Kazuya Mishima.
