Joker, the leader of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts from Persona 5, will arrive to Super Smash Bros.
Ultimate as its first DLC character.
Inspired by the lyrics of the RPG’s battle soundtrack Last Surprise, the shared message between gamers is “we never saw it coming” that the brawler will go out of the box right away in what Nintendo is calling Challenger Pack 1.
The announcement was made at The Game Awards 2018 in true Phantom Thieves fashion, with the lights cutting out before playing Joker’s trailer.
