Super Smash Bros. director and designer, Masahiro Sakurai, has revealed the second DLC fighter available in ‘Fighters Pass Season 2’.
Sakurai revealed “We are happy to announce that the next DLC fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, will be ‘Bombastic Bag-Man’. That’s right nerds – we heard the demand, and have finally answered your prayers.”, on his personal Twitter last week. He continued: “COVID-19 has really screwed things up here at Sakurai HQ, but creating this incredibly popular and well known character is of highest priority.”
Bombastic Bag-Man, making his first appearance in Activision’s critically-acclaimed ‘Spider Man’ for PS1 – published in 2000 – has shown himself in every Spider Man game since, most recently 2018’s ‘Marvel’s Spider Man’.
Bag-Man possess great power, and this paired with his undeniable fame – ensures that he would be a great fit amongst other high-profile characters in the world’s most famous fighting game.
Furthermore, Sakurai later stated “Due to Bombastic Bag-Man’s inevitable incoming popularity, and thus incoming revenue for in-game content, we are seriously considering adding more characters from the Spider Man franchise, the most prominent being ‘Undies-Man’, a quick-fan favourite.”
Fellow Bag-Man advocates, be patient. I know all of us are excited for his release, but due to the worldwide pandemic, we will have to wait play as our favourite video game character, and even longer to see him rise up the competitive ranks – reaching #1 in no time, I’m sure.
