A new tweet from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai has Smash fans on Nintendo Switch and Nintendo Switch Lite going crazy with speculation. This month, Nintendo added Steve from Minecraft to the game’s massive roster, and while excitement over the new addition is still high, many fans are already wondering who’s next. We know the game is getting more DLC characters, but what we don’t know is who’s coming and when they are coming.
Feeding into this speculation, the aforementioned Sakurai recently shared a seemingly cryptic tweet featuring two clocks. And that’s it. It’s just an image, no text, and the image is just of two clocks. Whether this is a tease or not, who knows, but many fans believe it’s a hint at a future DLC character. Problem is, the subject matter doesn’t easily lend itself to many theories, because, again, it’s just two clocks.
Below, you can check out the supposed tease for yourself:

As noted, the possible DLC tease has Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fans going extra crazy with speculation. And of course, many characters have already been implicated, including Crash Bandicoot and Sora from Kingdom Hearts, the two most in-demand DLC characters at the moment.
I didn’t find out the reference, but I noticed that N. Tropys’ helmet clocks are always pointing in the same direction (for the respective sex).#SmashBrosUltimate #SmashBros #SuperSmashBrosUltimate #SSBU#Crash4 #CrashBandicoot #CrashBandicoot4 #CrashForSmash pic.twitter.com/F3NXS2la7j

12:15 and 10:30.
Coincidentally these are the times when Tick Tock Clock is either unmoving or entering turbo speed.

The right is sooner than the left one. Dont ask me how, I don’t remember, but I ran the times through a serious of equations resulting in 31. If we assign 3 to the left clock & 1 to the right… & place the them in their correct order, it spells 13. YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE HAS 13? pic.twitter.com/3bb7btaqpv

So: This looks like the gateway portal from Chrono Trigger, the clocks if you go left to right, appear to be rewinding. Even still, Crash 4 involves time manipulation..so that’s my tinfoil hat message of the day. pic.twitter.com/5sfJ1ZJsqh

Of course, take everything here with a massive grain of salt. Not only because all of the theories above range from stretch to incredible stretch, but because we don’t even know if this is a genuine DLC tease or hint.
