More Mega Man Mii Fighters Coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate


Today, Masahiro Sakurai revealed the fifth and final DLC character for the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Fighter's Pass 1 - Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses - and several new and returnin Mii Fighter costumes! All the details of the presentation after the break.


Sakurai revealed that the fifth and final DLC character for the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Fighter's Pass was Byleth from Fire Emblem Three Houses. This came out of left field for some fans but Byleth certainly looks interesting to play. Byleth comes with 11 new music tracks from Fire Emblem Three Houses  as well as a new stage Garreg Mach Monastery.


Although the bulk of the presentation focused on Byleth, the main surprise for us Mega Man fans arrived when Sakurai went on to reveal the latest Mii Fighter costumes! Yes finally returning from Super Smash Bros for WiiU and 3DS  were the Mega Man X and Mega Man.EXE Mii Gunner outfits!





Other outfits announced were Altair from Assassin's Creed, a Rabbid from the Rayman universe and Cuphead who also comes with his own music track!


Byleth and all of the outfits above will be available to download on the January 28th. Byleth for $5.99 (free if you have the Fighter's Pass) and the Mii costumes for $0.75 each. You can check out the outfits in action in the trailer below.

Finally Sakurai announced that there will be a second fighters pass with SIX more characters to be revealed! 


He did mention that the characters to be included in the second pass had already been decided. Will we see more Mega Man representation? Only Sakurai knows for sure, but it'll be exciting to find out! The second fighter's pass also goes on sale on the January 28th, and all fighters will be released by December 2021. Additionally, if you purchase the fighter's pass you'll get an Ancient Soldier Mii Swordfighter costume from The Legend of Zelda The Breath of the Wild.

  3. They used starforce music for rockman exe... I'm like, was it really that hard to find bgm for them to use from the exe series or what? Maybe someone screwed up. Either ways, a neat direct but another fire emblem character, even if it's unique/totally different....not exactly what I was expecting. I'm hoping another Mega man character makes the cut in the next round of dlc fighters. Here's hoping!

    1. I think this is a hint that EXE/SSRM collection is going to happen...

    2. I think they just used the Star Force theme because that track is actually in Ultimate while there aren't any Battle Network tracks. While they use music not present in the game for costumes from franchises without representation like Altair or Goemon, if it's for a series that's in the game proper, they tend to turn to Ultimate's OST.

  4. They used Megaman Starforce music to introduce the EXE costume

  5. Love to see X and EXE costume in SMASH U, but it was kinda cringing to hear the wrong intro for the wrong character. They’re plenty of great representation EXE intros Nintendo could’ve chosen.

  6. I'm not 100% sure, but I think there's no Battle Network music in Smash Ultimate. There's one Star Force song though, and that's "close enough"....There's no Legends music either, despite there being at least 3 Spirits from Legends...it doesn't have to be a new remix, it's not that much to ask...

    Also, I know Zero is a spotlight stealer, and he's already an assist trophy, but I'd LOVE for Zero to be one of those 6 DLC characters...

    1. It's already confirmed that character who got a assist trophy are not going to be included, so there's very little chances to see Zero as playable.

  7. why they dont want to use X or any other character to be playable? just using Mii its a excuse and its lameful

    1. pretty sure that they already confirmed that no guest fighters (that is, character from non-nintendo games) from a serie that is already represented in the roster will be added in the DLCs.
      It's not really a "excuse", just a way to throw in a little nod to characters who could'nt make it into the game.
      Don't get me wrong, i'd like to have X, Zero, Protoman Volnutt and Exe as playable characters, and of course as a Mega Man fan, it is really disapointing to not get more playable MM characters. But think about it, Mega Man fans aren't the only one playing the game, if they include more MM characters, then why not include more Metal gear characters, more Final Fantasy characters, more... you get the idea. Fans of theses series want that as much as we do and they can't just favor one so it's either Nintendo characters or characters from franchise not previousely featured. So yes, it's disapointing but a perfectely legitimate choice on the dev's part.
      Now, Byleth is'nt the most interesting choice IMO since there are lots of FE characters already, but once again, it's not unreasonable that Nintendo would pick the main character from their latest hit.

  8. they must give us a Megaman X playable character not only a mii costume, thats a damn deception for you sakurai, im done with the fire emblem we need more megaman playable characters!

  9. My boi Cuphead! just last week i was talking with a friend about how they should do a cuphead costume and it looks just like i expected.
    Also, good that X and exe are at least available as costume since i knew they would'nt be made playables.

  10. "He did mention that the characters to be included in the second pass had already been decided. Will we see more Mega Man representation?"
    If we're talking about the next playable characters, 99% sure there won't be any MM characters. If they wanted to include one, Protoman X and Zero would have been the most likely candidate after rock himself and they're already mii costumes and assist trophy respectively. Now if we're talking about other mii costumes, there's a chance.

  11. Really loved their reveals. X fighting Ganondorf on Frigate Orpheon to represent the final battle of X1, and .EXE facing a Greninja repesenting Shadowman.EXE on GCO where they stay on their respective sides of the map. They put more thought into these than people give them credit for.
