New Smash Bros Ultimate leaks claim the next Smash Bros Ultimate DLC character could be Erdrick from Dragon Quest. Many leakers confirm that a new Square Enix character will be in Smash Bros Ultimate. But while names like Crono and Neku were also brought up, this adds a new theory to the table.
Next Smash Bros Ultimate DLC Character – Erdrick?
New Smash Ultimate leaks suggest Erdrick, the protagonist of Dragon Quest III, could be the next DLC character. The leak initially came from xenother on GameFAQs.
The possibility of a Dragon Quest character was also brought up by Vergeben. Vergeben is a leaker known for various credible leaks, including leaking Isabelle, Incineroar, and Ken long before they were revealed for the Smash Bros Ultimate roster.
Both users also note that another Dragon Quest protagonist, the Luminary, is also a possibility.
Vergeben previously claimed that Square Enix has thrown many names out to confuse and weed out leakers, so these claims are still questionable. However, with multiple leakers hearing the same thing from sources, there’s some weight to this theory.
More New Smash Bros Ultimate Leaks
Many other Super Smash Bros Ultimate DLC leaks have also surfaced recently.
Various Smash Ultimate DLC Leaks came from a 4chan user who correctly leaked Joker from Persona 5 making the roster. Other characters they heard were up for consideration include Crono, Neku (The World Ends With You), Banjo-Kazooie, Sylux, and Edelgard from Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
Rumors of Minecraft content have also been brought up for months, with Vergeben claiming there still seems to be some truth to it.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate leaks are always questionable, but these ones come from leakers with good track records. Nothing solid is known yet, rumor has it the next Nintendo Direct is in January. This will likely shed more light on upcoming DLC for players.
