We may know who the next Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC fighter is if a new hint is what many Smash fans think it is. The origin of the hint is Scott Menville, the voice actor of Lloyd Irving, the protagonist of Tales of Symphonia, the fifth game in Bandai Namco's Tales series. For those that don't know anything about the character, he has a cult-following, mostly thanks to the cult-following of the Tales series. Further, he's one of the most requested DLC characters, especially in Japan. So, while he may not be well-known among western gamers, he is a character some Smash fans have been asking for.
That all said, Menville, recently teased that he's working on a considerable role under NDA. Now, this could be a lot of things, chiefly something related to Teen Titan, which he's a voice actor for. It could also be neither Teen Titan or Smash related. Despite the odds, some fans the platform fighter are clinging onto the possibility that this is a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC hint. Literally a majority of the comments on Menville's tweet are about Lloyd being in Smash.
Again, this could be a lot of things, but given how much Lloyd has been requested over the years has me thinking Nintendo many finally be pulling the trigger and adding the Tales character to Ultimate. Interestingly, well-known industry and Nintendo leaker, Sabi, tweeted about it. Unfortunately for Smash fans, the leaker didn't divulge anything, but for some, Sabi commenting on the topic is enough for some to see smoke, and well, where this is smoke there's fire.
Alas, at this point, all we can do is speculate and wait. The game's next and fourth DLC character, Terry Bogard, is set to arrive in November, so we should hear more about who's next then.
