Best Buy leaks first look of Joker in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate?

The Best Buy ad for the week of March 31 – April 6, 2019 displays a seemingly brand new Joker render as part of an advertisement to buy the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass. This would be our first ever look of Joker as he will appear in the game, since his announcement trailer did not reveal any gameplay.

My first impression of this render is that it looks way too good to be an in-game character model in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It’s either a Joker created for prerendered cinematics, or Nintendo has revised the look of the planned Joker amiibo and we’re staring at an actual object.

What do you think of this image? Either way, the hype for Persona 5 coming to Ultimate is getting larger all the time.
