The way that Sakurai worded his tweet and basically daring us to guess who the fighter is, makes me think that FP5 could be someone relatively obscure rarely speculated by Smash fans.

Let's go Jason Frudnick.

Ohhh ****, here we go.

Now let's hope that neither Vergeben nor Sabi crawl out of the woodworks to spoil the surprise.

Now, to see when that time is for Europe. . .

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.

I mean, now's the time to get off Smashboards in case one of the trigger happy folks post their leaks here.

Why am I still here? Because I need a life.

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!!!

We still thinking it's DMC character? That the most popular guess?

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

Shantae and touhou gang checking in. Lets see what happens.

I know the dmc guy said to expect news on the 16th, but i doubt nintendo would have let them spoil dante that way, so i doubt its him.

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

So they're keeping it secret until the end.

Unless it was Dante in which case Nintendo is having extreme "Resi 4 will remain a Gamecube exclusive" flashbacks.

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.

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

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.
