Persona 5’s Joker Steals the Show in Smash Bros. Ultimate Tomorrow

The Phantom Thieves of Hearts’ calling card has been sent, and the long-anticipated Treasure finally materializes! Within a day’s time, Joker from Persona 5 will touch down in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as Challenger #1 from the Fighters’ Pass DLC, four months after his show-stopping reveal at The Game Awards 2018. Joker won’t be coming alone, bringing the whole crew of Phantom Thieves along for the ride and a stage based on the Palace born from everyone’s hearts — Mementos!

From the above manifesto, Joker makes full use of his handgun, dagger, and tripwire with the expected panache of a phantom thief. He can summon his main Persona Arsene to amplify his attacks and grant himself counters, as well as a better recovery. His Final Smash calls on his cohorts to assist him in unleashing their trademark All Out Attack, complete with the familiar black and red end card!

Within Mementos, you’ll need to keep an eye on the subway trains as well as intruding borders in order to survive. That said, while this iteration of the collective conscience is pulled right from Persona 5, its appearance can change based on the music being played! That’s right, even Persona 3 and Persona 4 are getting some love with the new stage, with new music and new Mii Fighter Costumes based on their protagonists, Morgana, as well as the returning Tails and Knuckles costumes from Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U (new costumes sold separately).

Not only that, Ultimate is also getting the hefty Version 3.0 update that brings with it a few surprises, in the forms of Stage Builder, video editing, and the long-awaited Smash World feature that takes full advantage of the Nintendo Switch Online mobile app. Ready yourselves for April 17 — tomorrow — as we have never seen all of this coming!

Sadly, the reveal video didn’t provide any insight on who Challenger #2 might be, but E3 is right around the corner…

Best Buy May Have Leaked Joker’s Render for Smash Bros. Ultimate

The first new playable character coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate via the Fighters Pass DLC is set to arrive any day now. Ren Amamiya of Persona 5, better known by his Phantom Thieves of Hearts alias “Joker,” infiltrated the theatre hosting The Game Awards last year with the show-stopping reveal that he would debut in Ultimate as Challenger #1 of the season pass. Now it looks like that long-awaited time might be right around the corner.

Straight from electronics retailer Best Buy, their weekly flyer for March 31 to April 6 came with an ad for the Fighters Pass, featuring a never-before-seen render of the illustrious Joker himself, featured below.

We have yet to see the new fighter in action aside from a backshot tease from the February Nintendo Direct. We do know that Version 3.0 is being touted as the ”
ULTIMATE Spring Update,” with new content being added; it stands to reason that this update will tie in with Joker’s addition. And if the weekly ad is any indication, this update is coming really soon. Whether it will follow a possible Smash Bros. Direct for a more in-depth look prior to its release is yet to be seen.

Aside from this render leak — assuming it’s real — Nintendo has been tight-lipped about the future of
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, though dataminers have looked into the game’s files and have discovered some interesting tidbits. It has been uncovered which stage pulled from Persona 5 will likely be released with Joker, as well as the possible return of Homerun Contest and Stage Builder as extra game modes. One thing’s for certain: Joker is bringing a ton of goodies with him once he starts stealing the show in Smash, and hopefully that occasion will come with an early look at the Fighters Pass Challenger #2.

In related news, last week’s premiere of the
Persona 5: The Animation OVA “Stars and Ours” ended with a tease of a possible definitive edition of Joker’s home game, titled Persona 5: The Royal. More information on the PlayStation 4 title, which features a new character, is expected to drop following the Persona Live Concert on April 24.

Joker is Coming to Super Smash Bros. by the End of April

We’ve been eagerly awaiting any update on the status of Joker’s inclusion in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster since he was announced last December. In today’s Nintendo Direct, it was revealed that Joker will be joining the already humongous roster by the end of April. Joker is available individually as part of the Challenger Pack 1 or as part of the Fighters Pass, which unlocks the next five downloadable fighters.

In addition, Nintendo also announced the version 3.0 update for Ultimate, though no further details were given on what this entails.

Persona 5’s Joker is Coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate


Nintendo just dropped a MAJOR Super Smash Bros. Ultimate bombshell at tonight’s The Game Awards and I literally cannot stop the tears of happiness. In what is possibly the best crossover ever, the main character of Persona 5, Joker, is coming to take your heart in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as the first confirmed DLC fighter in the Challenger Pack 1.

Since the DLC is coming with new stages and music, it’s never been a better time to be a Persona and Smash fan. I was going to hold off on the fighter pack for a bit, but with this news, I’m getting it right now!
