A series of new third-party Mii Fighter costumes are being added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, including Mega Man X and EXE.
To everyone’s surprise, the new DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was not a third-party character but Byleth of Nintendo’s Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
There are many reasons to expect that the Fighters Pass Vol. 2 will include many third-party characters (that is, those that do not belong to Nintendo) but that were already added on January 29 are a lot of new Mii Fighter costumes.
The most exciting, arguably, is that of Cuphead, which is not only very unexpected in terms of the character, but also comes with its own exclusive music track (Floral Fury of the Cagney Carnation fight).

On top of that is Altaïr from the first Assassin’s Creed game, which works as Mii Swordfighter. In addition, there is a Rabbids hat, which is also from a Ubisoft game.
Capcom is behind two other additions, with Mega Man X X and Mega Man.EXE Mega Man: Battle Network, both are Mii Gunners.
Mii Fighter Costumes are not covered by any of the Combat Pass, but are sold separately for 70p each.
These new ones will be released on Wednesday, January 29, but there is already a wide range of other costumes available that cover third party games ranging from Undertale to Goemon.
Although the Mii Fighters have customizable moves selected from a finite group, it is possible to give them attacks very close to most of the characters, which helps make up for things if their favorite was not chosen as part of the Fighters Pass.
