I think people are looking into this statement too much. My interpretation is that all 5 Fighter Pass characters are newcomers, which of course they are, every veteran is in the base game. All he said was "These are characters that are new to the series", referring to the fact that they're new to Smash, not that the characters are from new series entirely.I would back and want Lloyd since he grew quickly to be one of my favorites, but Reggie said these 5 fighters are from a series that have never been in Smash.
For my personal favorite, it's Hornet from HK.
But to be realistic, I think it's someone like Arle or a Capcom character like Phoenix or Amaterasu.
Edit: I was looking through my post history for kicks, and I found out I first commented on this thread on page 199, August 24, 2018. In 16 months and 800 pages since then, we've faced brutal deconfirmation, faced attacks from others, and still, we support this "irrelevant", "deconfirmed", and "redundant" character. I'm so proud of this community. We really are the best group in the Smash fandom, we live up to our chill reputation, but when push comes to shove, we stand for what we believe in. I love this group, and I can't wait to see us all rewarded.
