Joker, Mementos, Persona 3 and 4 music come to Smash Ultimate April 17

Joker Persona 5 Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Completely outta freakin’ nowhere, Nintendo has dropped a 15-minute video showing off Super Smash Bros. Ultimate version 3.0, showing off Joker from Persona 5. Joker and version 3.0 will release tomorrow, April 17. Joker battles alongside his persona, Arsene, and his stage is Mementos. Mementos can change colors to reflect other games in the series, namely Persona 3 and Persona 4, and the stage music changes to agree with those games when it happens. Eleven new songs are included in all.

If you watch the long video below, you can check out all of Joker’s different moves, like his grappling hook and Eiha magic. He also has a thing called Rebel’s Guard, a meter that builds up over time from guarding against attacks and other things. When the meter fills up, he unleashes Arsene, which powers up all of Joker’s moves. And of course, his Final Smash is All-Out Attack, in which he whoops everybody with his team.

Oh, also, Persona 3, Persona 4, and Sonic the Hedgehog costumes are coming for Mii Fighters. Random, but I’ll totally take it.

Joker is of course part of Challenger Pack 1. Watch the video for every tiny detail! Or don’t — that’s okay. You can just stay tuned as we publish more news about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate version 3.0!
