Update: The final results are in. Check out who everyone voted for as their favorite Smash DLC choices below.

We all knew it had to be coming sometime, but it was still surprising to see Nintendo announce they alongside Masahiro Sakurai will be revealing and showcasing the next Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC character tomorrow morning, January 16.

This will mark Smash Ultimate's 80th fighter in total, and at this point it still remains largely a mystery as to who it could possibly be. So, we'll put it to a vote. Who do you all hope to see Sakurai reveal tomorrow?

There's been some potential hints that we may see Devil May Cry's Dante join the fold, but that would also give Capcom four third-party representatives while none of the others really have more than two at this point. I'm sure there's a lot of people who'd like to see a Monster Hunter, Viewtiful Joe, Okami or Resident Evil representative as well.

Mr. Impossible himself is also still up for grabs as always in Geno from the Super Mario RPG game, but it feels like every time we mention him, his release gets pushed back by another two years because either he's cursed, we're cursed or everyone is cursed.

Fans around the internet have also been paying special attention to Sakurai's odd pose in the stream teaser photo where he appears to be holding up three fingers. Arguments are still ongoing if it actually means anything at all, but many are hopeful it could be a hint at someone like Crash Bandicoot, Sora from Kingdom Hearts, Travis Touchdown from No More Heroes or even Waluigi.

With less than 24 hours until the big reveal, it'll be hard to contain the hype, but it's nice that nothing has been leaked or data-mined up to this point as with a handful of the previous DLC. You can vote for up to three of your choices in the poll below to match up with the three fingers Sakurai is holding up.
