Atlus’ and Persona 5 The Royal’s Joker will be joining Super Smash Bros. Ultimate via the Spring 3.0 update, and just yesterday a leak from Best Buy prematurely revealed the render and costume for the leader of the Phantom Thieves.

Joker was announced for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a DLC combatant back in December 2018 during Geoff Keighley’s Game Awards, and since then there has been a number of leaks surrounding Persona’s fresh-faced MC.

However, since Atlus’ released a brief commercial that unveiled Persona 5 The Royal, it’s likely the ponytailed heroine referenced through the datamine isn’t a female alternative for Joker, but instead the Phantom Thieves’ newest skeptic.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Joker's Costume
The Best Buy leak shows off Joker's iconic costume in Persona 5 and the upcoming Persona 5 The Royal, as well the Funko Pop! Figures available to pre-order.
Per the leak, Joker supports his trademark black and white domino mask, along with his bathed in blood gloves.
His black ankle-length tailcoat is also wrapped snuggly around him, and he still supports his mischievous grin as he prepares to attack with his trusty dagger.
With February’s Nintendo Direct having confirmed that Joker will join the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Colosseum before the end of April, it’s possible he could make his debut on April 24 as Atlus will announce more Persona 5 The Royal news during their Persona Super Live Concert.
