Among the characters tipped to be 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 announcing the October Smash broadcast, a leak from a few months ago that appeared on the infamous internet message board 4chan took on new meaning.

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

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

“Sora is the last Smash character”.

Smash Bros Fighters Pass 1 and 2 characters

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

Given 4chan’s track record when it comes to ‘leaks’, this post didn’t get too much attention at the time.

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

That could add credibility to the claims that Sora is going to Smash Bros.

If the keyblade bearer moves to SSBU, the merry Kingdom Hearts hero will join a host 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 tons of great DLC characters to Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

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