Nintendo recently announced a new fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. As part of this, it also revealed a new line of Mii Fighter costumes.
In total, there were four new outfits revealed and one of them happens to be Dragonborn from The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. This new costume is a swordfighter and is part of round 10. It'll appear alongside Dante, Shantae, and a Tales of Symphonia character:
Considering Bethesda is now part of Microsoft, this technically means there's now even more Xbox representation in Nintendo's all-star brawler. Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai has also used it as an excuse to wish Bethesda Softworks a happy anniversary and make a joke about an arrow in the knee:
As can be seen above, Bethesda's other Smash Bros. rep is a Mii Fighter version of Vault Boy from the Fallout series. And these two are joined by Rare's Banjo-Kazooie and Minecraft's Steve, Alex, Zombie and Enderman on the Microsoft front.
Earlier this month we also heard how the Halo team would love to see Master Chief in Smash Bros. Ultimate. And there's still one slot left in the second fighters pass, so who knows what could happen.
Would you like to see another Xbox character make it into Nintendo's brawler? Leave a comment down below.
The mere fact that Sakurai went out of his way to have the Assist Trophy Kapp'n (Animal Crossing) drive Dragonborn away in a reference to Skyrim's opening should clue you in as to how much Microsoft's IPs (or any, for that matter) are in good hands when it comes to Smash.
You know what I would love to see? Nintendo announce master chief as the last character along with GPU coming to Nintendo at Decembers game awards.
Could you imagine another sword fighter joining the ranks? The Smash Bros diehards would loose their minds.
What are Mii fighters?
Miis are basically an idea that later (IIRC, at least) inspired Xbox's own avatars. Since the fourth Smash game, they're fighters and some of their costumes are DLC. Typically - barring exceptions - when a character becomes a Mii costume, its chances to get in the game as a proper fighter are boned, because the special moves (B+directions) only offer up to three options for each direction. More on that here.
