Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Is Getting A Persona 5 DLC


I thought they’d given me enough gifts with Animal Crossing’s Isabelle, but somehow, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the gift that keeps on giving. This is the first of five DLC characters, which Nintendo are calling “Character Packs.” As with all DLC characters, Joker is coming with a stage and music as well.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is out now. I am buying it right now. I’m sorry, wallet.


    So hype for this. Announcement of the show.

      Persona 5 Crimson for Switch?

        Everyone was full-on expecting it to be that, but somehow this is better?

          Spoiler: it's not.

          As insane as it might sound, I'm still holding out a crazy hope for P5C for Vita, even if digital only, even if JP only.

    Pity. If it was Persona 3 MC, I might have been interested enough to consider picking up Ultimate.

    Language mate?


    Have some dignity, for crying out loud! You're meant to be a writer...

    Next thing you know, Gita will forego words altogether and just mash the keyboard to express her excitement, like so: iuhgfdraiuh 42980 32h1 fqbik!!!!!111!

      Cut her some slack. She's allowed to go a little overboard when the announcement is as hype as this.

        I would completely accept that as a low-effort tweet, but making it half an article is stretching it a bit :-P

        It sure doesn't look justified if your reaction to the news is "...who?"

        I mean I probably had a similar reaction when they revealed Simon but that was in a chat with friends also watching the show, not an article posted to a news site.

      Are you jealous because you don't have her job? Or are you just being a dick for the sake of it?

    Jesus Fuck...? SMH

    I know a lot of people love Smash and new character announcements are a big deal to them, but as someone who doesn't play Smash but loves Persona I found this announcement really disppointing. I got my hopes up for an ultimate edition of the game in vein of Fes and Golden and instead got an announcement that's not really Persona related at all.

      Nintendo have said all Nintendo characters will be on smash so it's a BIG hint drop that persona 5 is coming to switch

        P5 characters are in a Nintendo game already - Persona Q2 on 3DS.

    Well that's dumb :/

    Then again, I'm biased. I didn't like Persona 5 all that much (plot, characters and most dungeons were really boring. If I had other games to play, I probably would have quit playing P5 in the pyramid or boat dungeons).

      I quit at the pyramid for all the reasons you gave and more. The amount of railroading and wasting days was sickening, combined with the unlikable cast, and narrative.

      I suppose I should have expected Dx2s story to have been terrible from what I’d played of P5, but I’d hoped it would have been more along the lines of Devil Survivor / SMT3

        I'm playing P5 now, and am quite liking it. Only a few hours in, but Ryuji is cool, kind of like a Kanji/Yosuke (P4) hybrid. I don't think it could ever reach the lofty heights of P4G though.

        Granted, I've only played P3P, P4G and PQ before this, so I may not have the full breadth of experience to compare against.

          Once you reach the Pyramid dungeon, you'll see what I (and akeashar and Casual Prolix, in their own words) mean about "I would have stopped playing P5 at this point." It goes downhill from there, too... but that's probably (definitely) my ire towards the game talking.

        I quit during the palace just after the pyramid because I was 40 hours in and had had enough of the game disrespecting my time. It's a shame though because when the game had the pacing right it was a lot of fun but there were just too many times it dragged on and ruined the mood. Sometimes the games industry could stand to learn a thing or two from the movie industry about why there are deleted scenes and why Director's cuts aren't always the best version.

          you just suck at time manegment. it was the best paced persona game., p4 was a chore and p3 was just a total time wasting mess.

    I sure hope we get life will change & last surprise as songs with that char.

    I'm excited as well for Joker from Persona 5 to be added as DLC for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
    I wasn't expecting to see that Joker from Persona 5 was going to be added as DLC for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
    So the rumours were true I'm excited for this Persona 5 DLC Atlus and I can't wait to play as Joker hopefully soon we'll get to see Persona 5 on the Nintendo Switch.
    Because as the song goes from Persona 5 The Last Surprise You didn't see it coming You'll see that my mind is too fast for eyes.
    You guys at Atlus are awesome and I'm looking forward to the Persona 5 DLC for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
    Hopefully we'll get to see Persona 5 on the Nintendo Switch soon because I'm all in for Persona 5.
