Joker from Persona 5 has been announced for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He'll be the first DLC character of the Fighters Pass.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's roster is already massive. There will be 74 characters at launch. Piranha Plant's inclusion as a bonus makes 75.

The inclusion of Joker will make 76. Remember that each DLC character of Fighters Pass will come with music and a stage. None of the DLC combatants will be Echo Fighters.

"These are going to be characters that are new to the series, just like Joker from Persona 5, characters you would not expect to be in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate," Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé said.

This marks the first Atlus character to join the roster. Like Snake, Mega Man, Pac-Man, Ryu, Sonic, Bayonetta, and Cloud; Joker is a third party character.

Joker is the main character you control in Persona 5. He's a high school student who was expelled from his previous school on a false assault claim.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is releasing... in just a few minutes actually on December 7, 2018.
