Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses has been revealed to be the Fighters Pass' fifth and final challenger for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He (or she) will made available to use on January 28.

In order to commemorate Byleth's inclusion, Nintendo has already added him to the Smash roster banner. There are now 80 playable characters that are present here.

Like every other character present in the image, only Byleth's default appearance can be seen. Put simply, female Byleth cannot be observed here.

Notably, Byleth is the eighth Fire Emblem character to join the Super Smash Bros. franchise as a playable character. Before him came Marth, Lucina, Roy, Chrom, Ike, Robin, and Corrin.

Byleth appeared within the vicinity of Snake, Piranha Plant, Daisy, Greninja, Ken, and Link. Unsurprisingly, this banner is already very packed. Seeing fighters getting crammed in here is certainly very interesting.

Of course, we know that more combatants will eventually be added to this amazing banner. Fighters Pass Vol. 2 has already been revealed to feature six new mysterious challengers.
