This DLC character is not included as part of the fighter pass, and will be a standalone DLC

the character costs $5, so if one person buys them, that is 5 cents

there are currently around 15 million units of Smash Ultimate sold, so best case scenario, roughly two-thirds of owners decides to get this character, or 10 million, that is $50 million dollars, 1% of $50 million being $500,000, or half a million

so you can go with a popular pick that is guaranteed to make a lot of money

or you can go with the niche pick that few people know that might make you a couple thousand

or you can strike a balance between what you want and what might sell

that sells to about 200,000 thousand people, who collectively spend $1 million dollars, and you make a profit of $10 thousand dollars

don't spend it all in one place

Sora. Just because he's my most wanted.
Conveniently, any dlc character is gonna sell like hotcakes for a variety of reasons, so I don't need to strike any balance, though Sora in particular would probably sell good anyways.
Oh, am I mistaken? I thought I heard something about delicious pancakes...

they will likely all sell to a lot of people

but if something sells to only 3 million people, you only make $150 thousand dollars

but if it sells to 9 million people, you will make $450 thousand dollars

Well, that's convenient. My most wanted, Monster Hunter, would sell gangbusters. Win-win!

It would make sense for them to sell
