TGA 2018: Persona 5's Joker joins Smash Bros Ultimate Challenger Pack 1 DLC

Nintendo offered the first look at Smash Bros. Ultimate's first Challenger Pack DLC and its packed with Persona goodness.


With the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate less than an hour away, Nintendo took center stage during The Game Awards 2018 to give the world the first look at the game’s initial DLC pack. The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Challenger Pack 1 DLC will feature Joker from Persona 5, as well as an all-new Persona-inspired stage.

Nintendo offered no firm date on when Smash fanatics should expect to see Joker join the combatants in the battle for video game mascot supremacy, but this announcement should be seen as a major score for the franchise. With Persona being a Sony-exclusive property up until this point, no one in attendance or watching the broadcast at home could have expected this. It certainly qualifies for biggest surprise of the show thus far.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is launching tonight and promises to be the ultimate version of the game. Nintendo Switch owners have been waiting on the platform brawler with bated breath ever since the company announced its existence for the hybrid portable/home console.
