On September 23rd, the next Nintendo Direct will be held, and it seems quite likely that the final Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC character will be revealed. This has not been confirmed by Nintendo, but it seems like a strong possibility, since the final fighter is slated to release before the end of the year. Naturally, fans are getting some last-minute speculation in, and many believe that Halo‘s Master Chief could be the next fighter. Master Chief would represent Microsoft’s third fighter in the game, following Banjo & Kazooie, and Minecraft‘s Steve. A Halo game has never appeared on a Nintendo platform (though a Halo DS game was apparently in development). However, there’s been a strong demand for the character to appear, and Nintendo does listen to the fans when it comes to these fighters. Perhaps we’ll see the Halo star make his first appearance on Nintendo Switch!

He is one of the few gaming icons not in Ultimate!
Im not gonna try and predict anything for tomorrow’s #NintendoDirect but if the final smash dlc fighter is revealed i hope its master chief. I think that would make the “celebration of games” game complete 🙂

A lot of fans want Sora.
Master Chief deserves to be in Smash before Sora.

We’d have no objections!
Smash predictions are Master Chief or Phoenix Wright that is all I am probably 100% wrong
