Nintendo has announced that Persona’s Joker, the first DLC character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, is available to purchase today!
Last night Nintendo surprisingly announced that the first DLC fighter, Joker from the Persona series, is coming to the game this week. Depending on where you live, his arrival will either be April 17 or April 18. Joker comes as part of Version 3.0 which comes with a handful of free content, too.
One of the biggest additions with Version 3.0 is the rumored Stage Builder mode which allows players to create personalized stages in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Using in-game tools, players can most of the things they’d find within pre-made stages, from moving platforms, spinning traps, and more. Players can also edit front and back layers to create decorative stages.
Players will also be able to share their designed stages online via the new Smash World service for the Nintendo Switch Online app. Players wanting to play created stages can also do so via the Designed tab on the Stage Select screen.
If that wasn’t enough, 3.0 also comes with a Video Editor. This allows players to stitch together video content created in the game that’s been saved to a Switch system. Subtitles and sound effects can be added for personalization, all of which can be shared via the Smash World service.
Smash World is a new service added to the Nintendo Switch online app. This new feature allows Smash players to view recommended videos and download custom stages shared by others. Basically, it’s a new online hub for all things Smash.
Nintendo has also unveiled the first round of Mii Fighter costumes. These costumes are based on Persona 5, Persona 4, Persona 3, and Sonic The Hedgehog. These costumes can be purchased individually and aren’t included in the Fighters Pass.
Check out the video below for a closer look at Joker and some of the stages he comes with in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as well as the Stage Builder, Video Editor, and Mii Fighter outfits. Joker is available as part of the Fighters Pack or purchased separately for $5.99 / £5.39.
