If there’s one thing that Nintendo is known for, it’s high-quality trailers for the Super Smash Bros. franchise. The past few installments have caused fanboys to go into a frenzy thanks to well-produced character reveals that are highlight reel worthy. This trend began with the introduction of Super Smash Bros. Brawl and has thankfully continued to this very day.
Proud Nintendo Switch owners have unsurprisingly fallen in love with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, a near-perfect rendition of the party fighter formula. During the game’s pre-launch period, gamers lost their minds because of excessive excitement once the footage for character unveils hit the web. The hype surrounding Ultimate roster additions such as Ridley, King K. Rool, Simon/Ritcher Belmont and Ken were well warranted—and that’s all thanks to the amazing cinematic trailers that signaled their arrival in Ultimate.
A bomb was dropped on the viewing audience in December when the now-retired Reggie Fils-Aime blessed gamers with a Smash teaser revealing Joker from Persona 5 as the next Smash Ultimate character. Ever since that mind-blowing announcement came to pass, fans have been left to debate over whom the next Fighter Pass characters should be. If Nintendo wants to break the internet all over again, then they’d better deliver some amazing trailers for the following characters we hope make it into Smash.
