Persona 5’s Joker Confirmed For Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

The Phantom Thief Joker Invades Super Smash Bros. Ultimate


Trust me, we never saw this coming. Joker, the main protagonist of Persona 5, will be making his way to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as part of the game’s first DLC character pack.

Following the character reveal at The Game Awards, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime took the stage to shed some light on the character, as well as the company’s approach to releasing DLC characters for the long-awaited fighting game. “There’s going to be five characters. Each character will come with a stage [and] it’ll come with a collection of music. These are characters that are new to the series… characters that you would not anticipate to be in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.”

Check out the Joker reveal trailer below:


Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releases tomorrow for the Nintendo Switch. Be sure to stay tuned for Anthony’s full review.

So, are you looking forward to stealing some hearts with Joker when Challenge Pack 1 releases? Sound off in the comments and let us know.
