With the impending release of Steve, from Minecraft, the community has gone right back to speculating as to the identity of the remaining DLC characters. According to the Twitter user "TheNintendata" a document leaked in the European licensing magazine had detailed information about licensing plans for Crash that would set him up to be released in Smash Bros Ultimate in 2021.
The details are fuzzy and no one seems to have the original publication of said magazine or the underlying document from Activision-Blizzard that would confirm the marsupial's arrival to Nintendo's brawling stages. Yet, Masahiro Sakurai, the game's director, posted an intriguing image to his social media on the 15th. One with a striking resemblance to most of Crash Bandicoot's "Warped" loading scenes. As well as two clocks reading 1:15 and 10:30.
