Smash fans love third-party characters, enough so that no matter how strange, they never fail to bring the hype. With all of the third-party character predictions abound, Delzethin has thrown his hat in the ring, following up from his previous video about first-party character predictions.
Like last video, Delzethin has three categories for his DLC candidates: front-runners, plausible picks, and conditional picks, with three potential newcomers in each section. Two characters were given spoiler warnings, as purported leaks seem to indicate that they may be playable. Both of these characters are preceded by warnings, alongside timestamps to skip to.
Delzethin follows most of the same guidelines he laid forth for first-party characters, but with one exception. For third-party characters, timing relative to major game releases tends to take a backseat to how recognizable the character is. He also argues that a recognizable character does not need decades of history. After all, Joker made his debut in 2016, but Persona 5 rapidly brought the series into the mainstream.
What third-parties would you like to see playable in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? Are there any that you think might have a shot? We would love to hear your thoughts.
