Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai has revealed that the game's post-launch character slate has already been decided by Nintendo.

Sakurai-san detailed a bunch of new content for the Switch-exclusive beat-'em-up during a Direct event last Thursday, where he confirmed new characters Ken and Incineroar as well as plans to launch additional fighters as DLC. 

There's going to be five new characters released post-launch in total, although the identities of them have yet to be revealed. However, the lineup itself is set in stone. 

'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s DLC line-up is now complete,' he wrote. 'This time the selection was made entirely by Nintendo. I decide if we can create a fighter based on their selection, then come up with the plan.'

'It’s great to dream about your favorite character joining the battle and I appreciate your passion, but please try to stay on topic when replying to tweets and refrain from flooding us, and other users, with requests when we’re not specifically asking for feedback,' he continued. 'Thank you!'

Of course, the question most of us are probably thinking – will Waluigi finally get his time to shine as DLC? 

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is due out on December 7.
