While this is the final character in the Fighter's Pass, it won't be the last addition to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. At a past Nintendo Direct, Nintendo confirmed that even more characters are going to be added once the Fighter's Pass is done, so fans can continue to speculate and hope regarding new additions for a long, long time.
As of September 2019, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has sold over 15 million copies, making it the best-selling fighting game of all time.
The roster just keeps growing and growing
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate had the biggest roster for the series to date upon release, and it just keeps getting bigger. Banjo & Kazooie are both now available in it, and Nintendo announced that Fatal Fury's Terry will be joining them next.
