Persona Protagonists

Atlus' Joker will arrive in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with music from Persona 5, 4 and 3.

Atlus’ and Persona 5’s leader of the Phantom Thieves, Joker, is joining Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and his arrival comes with music and Mii costumes from Persona 3 and 4.

There were concerns earlier in the month that Joker’s arrival had been delayed, but Nintendo has confirmed in a 16-minute showcase that the Phantom Thief is making his Super Smash Bros. Ultimate debut on April 18.

The video confirms that Joker’s arena is Mementos (as was already leaked in a datamine) and that Morgana will appear when taunting.

Joker also comes with a gun and a grappling hook, and his only Persona is the invincible Arsene.

In addition to all this, Joker has a variety of alternate costumes that make him resemble Dante, Vergil, and Crow, and there is music from Persona 5, 4 and 3.

The included tracks are:

Persona 5

  • Last Surprise
  • Beneath The Mask
  • Wake Up, Get Up, Get Out There
  • Our Beginning
  • Rivers In The Desert

Persona 4

  • Reach Out To The Truth
  • Time To Make History (my favourite)
  • I’ll Face Myself

Persona 3

  • Mass Destruction
  • Battle Hymn Of The Soul

There will also be Mii costumes such as a Morgana and Teddie Hat, along with the Persona 3 and 4 protagonists as Mii fighters to download separately.

The Challenger Pack 1 featuring Joker, Mementos, and the Persona series music can be purchased for $5.99. That or players can purchase the Fighters Pass for $24.99 to get access to Joker and the other four upcoming DLC combatants.
