The next Super Smash Bros Ultimate DLC character, the Dragon Quest Hero, may be released in early August, judging from the information found in a recent Japanese ad.
Twitter user PushDustin recently shared a Nintendo Japanese ad promoting the soon to be released Fire Emblem Three Houses. The ad also features the Dragon Quest Hero character and the previously announced Summer release date. What is interesting is that the ad is going to be up until August 4th.

The fact that the ad will be up only until August 4th hints at a possible release of the character on the same day or shortly after. August 4th is the day of the Super Smash Bros Ultimate finals at EVO 2019, so it's likely an announcement, and possibly the character's release, may be coming on the same day.
The Dragon Quest Hero is the second Super Smash Bros Ultimate DLC character included in the Fighter Pass. While the character's main costume represents the Hero from Dragon Quest XI, the other costumes will represent heroes from other entries in the series.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate has been released last year on Nintendo Switch. It's among one of the best games on the system and one of the best entries in the series ever.
But you might notice something in this review – a distinct lack of complaints. Well, much of the game is, of course, taken straight from Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, including characters, many animations and effects, but that’s it. It has so much new and changed that it feels completely distinct from that game, and the handheld form factor is another fantastic plus. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate really does include everything Smash of the past has offered and more, but it needs, perhaps, more new stages and costumes. They certainly wouldn’t go amiss.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate is now available on Nintendo Switch in all regions.
