Update: Which newcomers do you think will be announced tomorrow for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate?

Update: You can find the results to our latest poll after the jump that contain which characters you all believe are the most likely / want to show up the most in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at Nintendo's E3 Direct.

Earlier during E3, it was confirmed directly by Masahiro Sakurai himself that a newcomer for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be revealed this Tuesday on June 11th during Nintendo's E3 2019 Direct presentation that will take place at 9:00 a.m. PDT / 12:00 p.m. EDT.

"As for me, I'll be continuing my work on the next DLC fighter and more information regarding that will be shared in the Nintendo Direct for E3 2019, so I hope you're looking forward to it," said Sakurai.

Initially, Sakurai drew some attention to the Smash Ball that was sitting next to him as he spoke. Towards the end of the Sakurai's speech, he spoke about it again after it transformed into a Fake Smash Ball.

"Uh oh," said Sakurai. "It turned into a fake Smash Ball. Well, goodbye."

Quite an odd thing to draw attention to. Some have speculated that this might serve as some sort of hint of things to come, although there's currently no evidence to support such claims.

"I think many of you are going to want to tune in, next week, to see what or who [Sakurai] may be talking about," said Nintendo of America president, Doug Bowser. His word choice of "what or who" is particularly interesting.

Although there are many theories floating around (and supposed leaks), we won't truly know until Tuesday officially confirms the identity of the newcomer or newcomers.

Until then, we can take a wild guess. Which characters do you think will be revealed?

Below is a poll where readers can vote up to 10 times. We'll be closing this poll immediately before the Direct starts tomorrow.
