With the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate just minutes away, Nintendo revealed the first character that will hit the game as post-launch DLC: Joker from Persona 5. This was a surprise announcement during The Game Awards, and it’s doubly shocking because Persona 5 isn’t even on the Switch.
Joker’s inclusion in the game is fueling fan hopes of seeing Persona 5 hit Nintendo’s newest console. He’s the first of five Character Packs coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — each complete with a fighter, stage and music — and they’re purchasable in a bundle for $25.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a fantastic fighting game, a lovely nostalgia bomb and a must-have title for any Switch owner, in our humble opinion. And once the Joker DLC drops (it’s expected early next year), the whole thing will get a little bit more mysterious and delicious.
