With absolutely no fanfare Nintendo has dropped information on upcoming DLC fighter Joker, as well as other new features coming to Smash Bros Ultimate.

In a new video released today, Nintendo unveiled that the new playable fighter Joker from Persona 5, the Mementos stage and several Persona series music tracks will be coming to the Super Smash Bros. Joker's meter builds over the course of a match, and you can fill it even faster by using his Rebel Gauge defensive ability to block attacks. Ultimate update to coincide with the release of Joker from Persona 5 along with a brand new stage.

Arsene also modifies Joker's specials to Gun Special, which now fires three shots, and Wings of Rebellion which flies him around instead of grappling, making Joker invincible for a short time.

If Rare, Nintendo and Microsoft have come to an arrangement and have somehow put Banjo in Smash Bros Ultimate, they'll have made a lot of dreams come true. From Persona there's Morgana Hat, Persona 4 Protagonist (Swordfighter), Teddie Hat, Persona 3 Protagonist (Swordfighter) and from Sonic the Hedgehog, a Tails (Gunner) and Knuckles (Brawler) costumes. It gives you the flexibility to include moving and spinning platforms, alongside new stage elements like teleporters. Ultimate video. It will introduce new modes, including the previously leaked Stage Builder mode.


While custom stages have been a part of the Smash franchise for a while now, Ultimate's Stage Builder is certainly the most robust one, taking advantage of the Switch's touch screen to allow players to draw their own creations and play around with them in imaginative ways.

This actually looks like pretty much everything someone would want to start with... Music, subtitles, and transitions can also be added to your videos. Ultimate videos you have saved on the console.

With the update to sharing through the game itself, the Smash World smartphone app is also being updated to allow you to view videos and screenshots. If you still don't see Smash World in your list of services, please try again later. The Fighters Pass will include Joker and four more DLC characters - now unannounced - and a special wig and outfit of Rex from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 for players to dress their Mii Fighters in. Are you excited to get your hands on Joker? There you can sort out the results by Downloadable Content and it should appear first.
