'Super Smash Bros 4' DLC characters may include Shovel Knight, Isaac, Wolf, Inklings; Nintendo still quiet


Ever since it was released, “Super Smash Bros. 4” saw a lot of updates that range from the inclusion of new characters to the introduction of new stages. After three extra character slots were unlocked after the latest update, fans of the game have been speculating as to which DLC characters will be added soon.

According to Master Herald, a survey for which character should be released by Nintendo next ended recently. However, nothing has been announced yet about the results. Still, the report suggested that one of the new additions to the game could be Shovel Knight. However, as reported by Christian Today, the game’s developer, Yacht Club Games, said that the knight will not appear in “Super Smash Bros. 4” soon.

Shovel Knight is the main character in the side-scrolling game of the same name. Wielding a ShovelBlade, the blue knight could be a great and powerful addition to the game.

Master Herald also speculated that Isaac and Wolf could be introduced as the next DLC characters. Isaac is the main protagonist of the game “Golden Sun,” which debuted on the Game Boy Advance console. On the other hand, Wolf or Wolf O’Donnell is from the “Star Fox” game series.

Meanwhile, Gamnesia reported that the Inklings of “Splatoon” seem to be the most logical addition to the hit game. Based on the video uploaded by the website, the new character will be a big deal but a newcomer. In the ink shooting game, the Inklings can transform from squid to a kid and back. They have different weapons and gear that upgrade their abilities and ink-shooting power.

It is important to note that until Nintendo comments or confirms the different information about the new DLC characters, all these details will just be speculations and should be taken lightly.

For those who want to purchase “Super Smash Bros. 4,” the game can be purchased as a digital download from the Nintendo website or as physical game from authorized retailers. The game can be played on the Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo Wii U.
