The first DLC character of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate‘s Fighters Pass is the ultimate Phantom Thief

Viewers were expecting big announcements from The Game Awards 2018 but you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who could have guessed that the first DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate would hail from the Persona franchise, let alone the main character from Persona 5, Joker.

While there isn’t any gameplay for the upcoming fighter, Joker’s trailer has all of the razzle-dazzle you’d expect from a Persona teaser. Check it out for yourself below to be enveloped by the undeniable style of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate x Persona 5.

Players can purchase Joker individually through Challenger Pack 1 for $5.99 or through the Fighters Pass for $24.99 which will come with 5 characters in total. Each pack comes with one fighter, an additional stage, and multiple music tracks, so if you know anything about the Persona series, its got some of the best jams in gaming.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is nearly here and depending on your time zone, it might already be available to you! The first DLC character, which can be acquired as an early-purchase bonus, is Piranha Plant, so be sure to snag your copy before January 31, 2019.
