Persona 5’s Phantom Thief Joker Available on Smash Ultimate
After months of radio silence, Persona 5 protagonist Joker will be available for download along with the 3.0 Update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on April 17th, 2019.
Joker can be bought individually for USD $5.99 (MYR 24.55) or bought with the Fighter’s Pass for USD $24.99 (MYR103.27) which will come with four more unannounced characters.
Purchasing Joker either way will also add new Spirits for the Spirit board, a playable Adventure Mode for Joker as well as his own stage, Mementos.
Joker’s main gimmick in Smash is his Rebellion meter, which can be charged to summon his Persona, Arsene, changing the properties of his moves as well as giving him a glide.
His stage, Mementos, also changes colors depending on the music, which includes music from Persona 4 and Persona 3, and he also has a custom win screen evocative of the win screen from Persona 5.
There has been no news on the remaining DLC fighters for Smash Ultimate, however they plan to be released “through February 2020”.
*EDIT: a previous version of the article had said there were three more DLC fighters, which was a careless mistake on the writer’s part. The error has been fixed
