Nintendo UK website’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC ‘Challenger Pack 4’ page includes SNK copyright


The page for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate downloadable content “Challenger Pack 4” on the Nintendo U.K. official website includes an SNK copyright, suggesting that the next playable character following Banjo-Kazooie will come from an SNK property.

The pages for “Hero Challenger Pack,” and “Banjo & Kazooie Challenger Pack” each include copyrights for the companies from which the characters are licensed. However, the “Joker Character Pack” page does not.

Here is the full text of the “Challenger Pack 4” page:

Planned for distribution by 29.02.2020

This downloadable content set contains the following:

  • One new fighter
  • One new stage
  • Several new music tracks
