No it's just one character, which means people are going to immediately speculate he'll reveal two characters.
I mean to be fair, there's nothing stopping Sakurai from being all like "By the way, we have one more announcement to make" at the end and cue Fighter 6. Not that i'm expecting it but it could easily happen.

ALL IN ON DANTE?????

I doubt "oracles" is a hint and is more him kidding around but what if it's a character who can see the future or is involved in fortune-telling? It's crazy, this whole shadow-drop thing, is it someone mysterious?? I gotta take time off work to catch this live I'm freaking it!!!

he's holding up three fingers 3h character confirmed my logic is infallible
The Smash logo in this announcement is on Fire
the logo could be considered an Emblem
Sakurai is holding up Three fingers
Sakurai wrote an article semi-recently about him owning multiple Houses

oh yeah, it’s all coming together

So, looking at the wording of that announcement. . . they're not even explicitly mentioning this being FP5.
Watch it be the first post-pass DLC character lmao

At this point I'm betting it's Dante. The date that Matt Walker gave us is the same as the presentation. And there is no Nintendo direct soooo
i mean it's also entirely possible they just release DMC3 info independently of nintendo like they did for the style switching update

Ootl, does any 3h character own a bird? If so that character's 100 % in cause that ain't falco.

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but as I have recently began playing DMC I have started caring about Dante. This disconfirms him, as one of the most consistent rules for DLC is that it must be a character I don't care about.

Please understand

Still, the longest Smash direct was due to Sakurai fanboying over SNK and playing Terry's classic mode.

I really really REALLY hope it isn’t Dante because Matt Walker and that VA spoiling a Smash reveal a few days in advance is a tremendously dickheaded move from supposed professionals.
I don't think that would go down well with the Japanese office as Fire Emblem Three Houses jettisoned two VAs for breech of contract for talking about their roles before they were allowed to. One innocently, one less so.

Sorry, but there is a Dante you're forgetting about...

That's right Donte coming in hot as the most iconic version of the character.
