4 DLC Characters Super Smash Bros Ultimate Needs
Hunter (Monster Hunter)
Out of all the video game series out there right now, Monster Hunter seems the most likely that could get added into Super Smash Bros Ultimate, for a variety of reasons. Monster Hunter has long been a legacy series for Nintendo, seeing a ton of different entries on the 3DS, Wii, and more. From mainline games like Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, to spinoffs like Monster Hunter Stories.
Couple that with the fact that in 2018, Monster Hunter: World became the hottest thing since sliced bread. It quickly became Capcom’s best-selling game of all time with over 10 million copies sold to date, a staggering number for any series.
The announcement of Joker showed that Nintendo might want to tap into the zeitgeist of the game industry, going for DLC candidates that represent gaming as a whole right now. Monster Hunter would do just that, and a Hunter character already seems like a shoe-in for Smash.
The different weapons of the series would make for an interesting moveset, and imagine a Final Smash where a Palico buddy joins in. To make things even better, Super Smash Bros Ultimate even already features Monster Hunter content.
The iconic monster Rathalos is a boss, and joining it are a few Monster Hunter music tracks. Because of that fact, let alone everything else, a Monster Hunter character seems like a prime candidate.
