Random: Fans Believe Shantae 5’s Animated Opening Contains Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC Tease

Earlier this week, Wayforward shared a short preview of the opening movie for Shantae 5, animated by the legendary Studio Trigger.

While the preview was meant to advertise Shantae’s latest solo adventure, things took a sharp turn when fans spotted something “interesting” in the background of one of the shots. Namely, that the window of Shantae’s bedroom looks “suspiciously” like a Smash Ball, as seen in the featured image.

Naturally, this led to a wave of Tweets and responses claiming that it was teasing Shantae as the next DLC Fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

While it is indeed “possible” that the window is a Smash Ultimate DLC tease, we here at Nintendosoup would like to point out that not only is that design a very common one for windows, but Shantae is already in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a spirit.

With this in mind, it seems that this particular “tease” is more along the lines of wishful thinking than an actual hint from Wayforward, but there’s always a chance while there are still 2 more Smash Ultimate DLC Fighters left unannounced.

What do you think? Let us know in the comments below.
