SUPER SMASH BROS. ULTIMATE: Sakurai Makes It Clear That Neither Iron Man Or Goku Will Join The Roster

While this may not come as a surprise to anyone, Super Smash Bros. series creator, Masahiro Sakurai, has finally confirmed that characters like Iron Man or Goku will not join the series.

For the longest time, fans of the Super Smash Bros. series have been wanting to see their favorite characters making their way into the ambitious roster titles in the series usually have — which are as varied as Pac-Man, Solid Snake, and even Cloud Strife; to name only but a few, that is.

Super Smash Bros. series creator has mentioned in the past that only video game characters are considered to join new entries in the popular fighting series, which is something that some fans oftentimes misinterpret; thinking that any character that has been in a video game is eligible.

Among the most-requested characters we can find Goku, from Akira Toriyama's renowned Dragon Ball series, and some mainstream superheros like members of Marvel Comics' popular Avengers; all of which have already been in video games in the past.

During this year's Tokyo Game Show, Sakurai took the opportunity to clear the whole thing up, once and for all, by saying that neither Goku or Iron Man will show up in Super Smash Bros., as they only add characters from video games, not characters that have been in video games.

"I get all these kinds of requests from abroad like, 'Where is my believed Iron Man?' or 'Where is my beloved Goku?'. However, basically [Smash] will only have content from video games in it," Sakurai revealed.

Sakurai also revealed that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was the last mission that former president of Nintendo Satoru Iwata gave him before he passed away in July of 2015, so he's very committed to making the game even better than it already is.

"I'm sorry for bringing up this personal story at a time like this… but making Smash Bros on the Switch was the last mission the late Satoru Iwata gave to me. I've put my all into the game, and with more DLC I will continue to work hard."

So, there you have it, folks; characters that don't stem from video game series simply won't be added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — although a lot of people, even the ones who still keep begging for Goku or any of the Avengers to show up, already knew this.



Legendary game worlds and fighters collide in the ultimate showdown—a new entry in the Super Smash Bros. series for the Nintendo Switch system! New fighters, like Inkling from the Splatoon series and Ridley from the Metroid series, make their Super Smash Bros. series debut alongside every Super Smash Bros. fighter in the series…EVER!

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is currently available exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.
