The Game Awards' Geoff Keighley responds to disgruntled Smashers about the lack of a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate reveal at this year's event

It's hard to believe that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is already more than a year old. At last year's Game Awards, just one day before Ultimate hit shelves, a special sneak peek trailer for DLC character Joker was shown and many were hoping to celebrate the game's one year anniversary with a similar showcase.

When all of the awards had been handed out and no such reveal had taken place, more than a few members of the Smash community took to social media to express distaste.

There was so much buzz going around that it prompted The Keef Crew to do one of their spot-on comedy videos, which we admit, we had a chuckle at ourselves.

The issue here is that many Smashers turned their frustrations directly at The Game Awards and Producer/Creator, Geoff Keighley. It probably should go without saying that a call to reveal a new DLC character would be up to Nintendo, and to aim any shots at the event is essentially shooting the messenger, err, the non-messenger in this case.

Keighley actually responded on Twitter about the ordeal a few days after the event was over and done with. Though this topic is still seeing quite a bit of discussion online, it seems people are redirecting their anger away from Keighley and The Game Awards.

While we are a little sad we still don't know who the final newcomer for this batch of DLC will be yet, we suspect we won't get too far into 2020 without this information becoming public.
