Those of you who are expecting some secret unannounced playable character will be disappointed, as the data has so far only revealed a lot of awesome remixes of classic tracks and new information about the World of Light mode.
It has been revealed that there is far more to the World of Light mode than initially realized. The massive world map that is filled with battles is actually only a third of the overall mode.
It turns out that there are two more maps to the World of Light mode, one of which is called the World of Dark, while the third is called the Final Map and it appears to accommodate the true final boss of the mode.
The fans originally thought that the end boss of the game was the mysterious Galeem, which is the Safer-Sephiroth looking creature from the trailers who wiped out everyone (except for Kirby) in the World of Light trailer.
It turns out that there are actually three bosses in the game, with Galeem representing the light side, and a darker version of him, called Darz, acting as the boss of the World of Dark mode.
The Final Map contains a fusion of the Galeem and Darz, who will act as the final boss of the World of Light mode. It's possible that this last map will only contain the final boss battle and won't contain any other battles.
One of the chief complaints about Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U was the lack of any significant single-player content, as fans had hoped for something similar to the Subspace Emissary mode from Super Smash Bros. Brawl to return.
It looks like Masahiro Sakurai has listened to the fans wishes and is offering a massive single-player campaign for the fans who want to see a story made out of the biggest crossover event in gaming history.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be released for the Nintendo Switch on December 7th.
