‘Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’ Joker from ‘Persona 5’ Announced as First DLC

Nintendo UK

Smash Ultimate 's director, Masahiro Sakurai already revealed that the DLC characters for the upcoming Switch title has been decided on already so it's likely that the rest of the fighters are already in development.

Surprised? Nintendo's Reggie Fils-Aime says that's the plan. Nintendo revealed additional details about the game during a Nintendo Direct last month.

But in the end it never happened, and there was no hint of Bayonetta 3 either.

Technically the cast of the game do appear in Persona Q2: New Cinema Labyrinth for the 3DS, which has just been released in Japan, but this isn't the first time a character has appeared in Smash that doesn't have a close relationship with a Nintendo console.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is out today and, as our review revealed, is absolutely, well... smashing.

While Persona 5 itself is only available on PS4 and PS3, this announcement certainly came out of left-field and should make fans of the acclaimed JRPG series happy that the franchise will be represented in Super Smash Bros.

The addition of Joker from Persona 5 brings the confirmed roster for Super Smash Bros. The quirky new fighter is set to release sometime in February.

Piranha Plant is the first character added post-launch as a special bonus fighter.

The game's first Challenger Pack will also include a new stage and various music tracks. Alternatively, you can buy the Fighters Pass to get them all.
