According to Nintendo, the presentation will only run about three minutes long, and will be followed by a “brief message” from sports director Masahiro Sakurai, so it appears that we won’t be able to find our usual deep-diver in the new fighter yet. There is no word on whether there will be an additional stream to go into further details or how the new fighter will be added to the game soon.

What we know
This will mark the second DLC fighter to come from Smash Bros. Ultimate Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2. The first, Arm Se Min Min, was added to the game back in June. Fighters Pass Vol. 2 will add a total of six new characters to the game, so at least four more are still set to run after tomorrow’s new fighter. Fighters Pass Vol. 2 costs $ 30 USD.
According to game analyst Daniel Ahmed, who has teased correctly in the past and revealed the information, it will not be a first-party character, meaning it will not be another addition to the Fire Emblem series, as some have Jokingly suggested. Ahmed also noted that it was unusual that the daminers had not received a clue as to who the new fighter was referring to.
fwiw, i think people will be excited by this. This is not a one-time first party character.
Kind of strange that no data miners picked it up.

Smash Bro. The most recent update to Ultimate came back in August, and it added a whole new platform for all players: Small Battlefield. As its name suggests, it is a smaller version of the classic Battlefield stage, which creates a much tighter area. You can also play a music track from other stages on the level.
Nintendo has made several other video productions recently. Earlier this month, the company made a presentation dedicated to Mario’s 35th anniversary. This was followed by another Nintendo Direct Mini Partner Showcase, in which Nintendo and Capcom unveiled two new Monster Hunter games for Switch: Monster Hunter Rhys and Monster Hunter Stories 2. Most recently, there was a Pokémon rendition featuring Sword and More details were revealed about the next detail of The Shield’s DLC expansion, The Crown Tundra.
