The Super Smash Bros Ultimate Spirits Mode is also likely to feature. Sakurai hinted at a new secret mode all the way back in the August Smash Bros Direct. This may be similar to Smash Bros Brawl’s Subspace Emissary Mode, featuring bosses such as Dracula, Rathalos, and maybe even Skull Kid.
We should also see new Super Smash Bros Ultimate Stages. Past leaks suggest there will be 5 more to make it to the December release.
