According to Nintendo, Byleth will not be the final DLC character coming to the game. During last week's Direct, a second Fighter Pass has been confirmed. This pass will include six more characters that will be released by the end of 2020.

The previous major update for Nintendo’s insanely popular brawler, update 6.0.0 was released back in November of last year.
