The next downloadable content character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate may have been uncovered thanks to data mining. Twitter user @jam1garner shared the discovery made by data miner @KuroganerHammer and others.
The following three parameters presumed to be code names for future fighters were discovered:
- fighter_kind_packu (Pirahna Plant, as it is called “Packun Flower” in Japanese)
Furthermore, @_Mizumi shared run speeds for the three fighters:
- fighter_kind_jack – 2.21
- fighter_kind_brave – 1.74
- fighter_kind_packu – 1.72
For comparison’s sake, Sonic has a maximum speed of 3.85 and Incineroar has a maximum speed of 1.18.
While “packu” is more than likely the February-due Pirahna Plant, “jack” and “brave” are up in the air. “Jack” could be the code name for the December-announced Joker from Persona 5—perhaps a reference to the Shin Megami Tensei / Persona series’ Jack Frost. “Brave,” on the other hand, could be a translation of the Japanese word “Yuusha,” which is the name of the Hero class in Dragon Quest titles. At this point, we can only speculate.
