Update: Nintendo's Super Smash Bros. Ultimate stream is now live. You can watch it below.

The day has finally come for the world to know who exactly will be the final character of the Fighter Pass for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with director Masahiro Sakurai scheduled to take to the online "stage" shortly.

Nintendo's Smash reveal stream for "???" is set to begin at 6 a.m. PT / 9 a.m. ET this morning with a presentation from Sakurai that is supposed to last around 35 minutes in total.

This is the first time for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's DLC that Nintendo will debut and showcase a character at the same time for the Fighter Pass since Joker, Hero, Banjo-Kazooie and Terry Bogard all had trailers before their gameplay reveals.

Today's announcement will also seemingly be the first time since Joker's unveiling that we'll have essentially no clue as to who may be showing up on stream unless it's a certain demon hunter that's been making the rounds online.

Devil May Cry's Dante has been rumored to be the new character after the series' producer told fans to keep an eye out for Jan. 16, 30 and February 13 though Matt Walker showed off this morning that style switching will be coming to the Nintendo Switch port of DMC3 — thus dampening Dante's chances a bit.

You can check out the full stream with us below on Nintendo's Twitch channel, or it will also be available on the company's YouTube page.
