How nice of Nintendo to drop this shocker on us all!
Fans of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate first learned that Joker from Persona 5 was the first character to join the roster via the game’s “Fighters Pass.” During last year’s Game Awards, his teaser trailer graced our screens and sent everyone into a frenzy. Later on, it was learned that Joker would become available in April 2019. But ever since the news broke, Nintendo has been pretty quiet on any updates concerning Smash Ultimate’s newest DLC character. Then out of nowhere, an information dump revolving around Joker and Smash Ultimate’s much anticipated “Version 3.0” update dropped!
The lengthy video posted above should show you everything there is to know about Smash Ultimate’s April 17th delivery of extra content. Check out even more info about Joker and everything coming along with him real soon:
