At long last, Nintendo announced a release window for Super Smash Bros Ultimate’s first paid DLC character, Joker from Persona 5. Here’s everything we know about the character so far.

Super Smash Bros has been a hit since it was released in December 2018 and the game got it’s first DLC character, Piranha Plant, with the 2.0 update in January.

During the February 13 Nintendo Direct, fans finally got new information regarding the upcoming release of the next DCL character, Joker, along with a brief glimpse at his in-game character model.  

Ultimate’s newest fighter, Joker, is a character from Persona 5, not Batman’s arch nemesis.

When is Joker coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate?

Joker, a unique level for the character, and new music will be available in the first paid DLC Challenger Pack before the end of April.

The 3.0 update could also happen around that time, possibly in conjunction with the release of Joker, but Nintendo didn’t give any details on a release date for the update specifically.

What will Joker’s moveset be?

Fans only got a brief look at Joker’s in-game model during the Direct, and we still don’t know anything about his moves as no gameplay was shown off.

Nintendo will definitely release new teasers for their latest DLC character before he makes it to the game, and more about his moves and play style should be revealed then.

The addition of Pihrana Plant led to corrupted save files for some players when it was added to the game in January, an issue that will hopefully be avoided this time around.

While Nintendo seems to have a pretty regular update schedule planned for Ultimate, they also seem to be keeping the dates on that update schedule completely concealed for the time being.

Ryan Garcia might be a professional in the boxing ring, but now he’s looking to step into the Super Smash Bros. scene and take on one of the most dominant champions, MkLeo.

Ryan Garcia has been making headlines for the wrong reasons lately. However, it looks like he wants to turn a new leaf and win over some fans in the Super Smash Bros. community.

Surprisingly, he has been a dedicated fan and player of the game for many years now. “My love for smash started with [Super Smash Bros. Melee],” he said. “I watched the documentary and been playing ever since.” 

Ryan Garcia has been vocal about his dissatisfaction with Nintendo after they shut down The Big House. Now, it seems like he’s willing to put on a spectacle for the community and take on one of the biggest names in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Ryan Garcia is one of the best boxers in his division.

“I challenge MkLeo to [a] 30,000$ [Super Smash Bros.] match,” he said.

If that wasn’t exciting enough, he also called for it to be a best-of-two series, meaning fans would get more of a show.

Leonardo López ‘MkLeo’ Pérez is widely considered to be the best Super Smash Bros. Ultimate player. He’s always risen above and beyond any challenge, and it wasn’t any different this time around. “Hey, I’m down to make this happen,” he said.

Naturally, he’d be the heavy favorite in Super Smash Bros. It’s the equivalent of him stepping into a ring against Ryan Garcia, except the other way around. Still, Ryan Garcia was keen to get the ball rolling and asked him to “set a date.”

So, it seems like the two of them have made a gentlemen’s agreement over the bout. Keep in mind, though, that nothing is set in stone until an official announcement has been made. 

Still, it’s an exciting prospect and one that Super Smash Bros. fans from all around the world are looking forward to.

Of course, they expect it to be heavily one-sided, but Ryan Garcia might have a couple of tricks up his sleeve.
