Nintendo has updated their official Youtube channel with a new trailer for Super Smash Bros. Ulimate, which features the new content that will be released in the 3.0. update for the game.
First, the trailer featured the first in game footage of Joker from Persona 5, who is the first DLC character in the Fighters Pass. The trailer reveals that Arsene will be the main focus in Joker’s attacks and also reveals that his Final Smash will be based on the All Out Attack finisher from Persona 5. When attacking or being attacked, Joker will be able to charge up Rebellion gauge, his attacks will gain some extra power by unleashing Arsene when the bar is full. In addition to Joker he will also be accompanied by a new stage called the Mementos.
For those who are not aware, the Mementos is a primary location in Persona 5 where the player needed to explore in order to progress through the game. The trailer also revealed that 11 new tracks will be added alongside Joker and Momentos. The included tracks will be sourced from Persona 5, Persona 4, and Persona 3. Mementos will change it’s overall look depending on the origin of the track being played in the background. Those who purchased Joker will also be able to unlock new spirits within the Spirit Board. Joker, alongside the new tracks and stage are apart of Fighter Pass 1, which is priced at $5.99 or apart of the Challenger Pack.
