It has been revealed that Joker of Persona 5 will be available for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate before the end of April 2019.

The Nintendo Direct also stated that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate patch 3.0 will be coming soon as well. Unfortunately, Nintendo wasn't ready to reveal the contents of version 3.0 but special emphasis was placed on this.

More than likely, this update will be launched in April along with Joker. This patch was declared to be Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's Spring update.

Joker will be the first fighter of the Fighter Pass deal. Essentially Challenger Pack 1 will come with Joker, a new stage, and additional music.

We got a quick glimpse at Joker's model in action. Of course, he was surrounded by a black screen.

Notably, his face was never shown as he was always facing away from the screen. He simply landed from a jump then remained crouched. From here, we saw what appeared to be his idle animation.

It was also revealed that Snake, Simon Belmont, the Pokémon Trainer, Squirtle, and Ivysaur will be receiving Amiibos at some point.
