While there was no hint of who the final character in the Fighter Pass Vol. 2 might be, Sakurai did tease that the new character will arrive this year but "it'll be a while before that announcement." Sakurai also confirmed that a Min-Min amiibo would arrive in 2022.

Shantae even includes an additional music track. Each of these costumes will cost 75 cents.
