The first of the paid-for DLC characters in Super Smash Bros. is arriving this week, including Mii Fighter costumes based on Persona 3 and 4.
Rather than having to wait for a new Nintendo Direct, Joker is being added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on Thursday, 18 April.
He’s the first of five paid-for DLC characters planned for the game and although there are a plenty of rumours the other four have not yet been announced.
Each will come with their own themed music and stage, and in Joker’s case that’s Mementos from Persona 5.
You can either purchase Joker separately for £5.39 or as part of the Fighters Pass, that will eventually give you access to all the DLC characters, for £22.49.
If you buy the Fighters Pass you also get a Mii Fighter outfit based on Rex from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 but there also now additional paid-for Mii Fighter costumes separate from the Fighters Pass, which is not something Nintendo has mentioned before.
They include a Morgana hat from Persona 5, a Teddie hat, and full costumes for the Persona 3 and Persona 4 protagonists (they have customisable names in the game), plus Tails and Knuckles from Sonic The Hedgehog.
They’ll also be available from tomorrow and will be 70p each, although it’s not clear if the hats are that much too – compared to the full costumes.
With so much Persona content the irony is that none of the mainline modern games have ever appeared on a Nintendo console and despite constant rumours of a Switch version of Persona 5 nothing’s been announced yet – although there is a Persona event planned for 25 April, which may be when it’s revealed.
The video above also highlights the free Version 3.0 update that will also be released tomorrow, which apart from the usual fixes and balances adds three major new features, these are the official descriptions:
• Stage Builder: Players with big ideas for a personalised Super Smash Bros. Ultimate stage can let their creativity run wild with the new Stage Builder mode. By using in-game tools, players can add moving platforms, spinning traps and other unique features to their customised stages. By playing in handheld mode, budding designers can even use the touch screen to freely draw and create, and use front and back layers to decorate their stages further. Designed stages will be available to play in a new tab on the Stage Select screen and can be shared online via the new Smash World service for the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app.
• Edit Video: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate video content that has been saved to a Nintendo Switch console can now be spliced together into a fun timeline presentation. Subtitles and sound effects can also be added to personalise the video, which can be exported and shared with the world through the new Smash World service for the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app.
• Smash World: Players can view shared videos and download stages created in Stage Builder to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in Smash World, a new service in the Nintendo Switch Online app. In Smash World, players can view recommended videos and even download custom stages shared by others online, giving players more ways than ever before to share their Super Smash Bros. Ultimate experience with friends.
