Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Adds DOOM Slayer Mii Fighter DLC (VIDEO)
On top of the newest and final DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the presumable last batch of Mii Fighter costumes have also been revealed for the Nintendo Switch crossover brawler. Unveiled in a new Masahiro Sakurai-led live stream event, DOOM Slayer (a.k.a. Doomguy) from the DOOM series is the arguable highlight of the latest Mii Fighter DLCs.
Shown in the video below, Splatoon takes the majority of the representation for this 11th batch of Mii Fighter costumes, adding a tentacle-y Octoling wig and a hat mimicking the appearance of Judd the rotund kitty cat. Of course, the aforementioned DOOM Slayer enters last, bringing along his admittedly subdued “rip and tear” sensibilities in an appropriately heavy metal fashion.
Acting as a somewhat second chance for fighters snubbed from the main roster, Mii Fighters have added quite a few third-party challengers to the game in an official capacity. So far, the likes of Cuphead, Dante from Devil May Cry, and Geno from Super Mario RPG, have all been added through these means, and while it’s surely a shame that a main roster debut wasn’t in the cards, it’s definitely more preferable than nothing in the grand scheme of things.
As of now, Mii Fighter Costumes #11 is set to arrive on October 18th for the usually miniscule price of $0.75 USD each. Debuting on the same day as DOOM Slayer in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the game is also set to deliver Sora from Kingdom Hearts as the final DLC entrant of its long-running post-launch. In addition, the finale of Fighters Pass Vol. 2 will also supply a new fighting stage as well as a set of iconic songs themed around the RPG series.
