The Latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Rumor

by Elsa Stringer

At this year’s Game Awards, the president of Nintendo of America, Reggie Fils-Aimé, announced that Joker from Persona 5 will be the new character to be included in the in the game’s first DLC pack. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is planned to have five packs which can be can be bought in a single transaction known as the Fighters Pass bundle.

Since we learned that we will see Joker among the other five DLC fighters who will join Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, we couldn’t stay still but wonder who the other four characters would be. There have been many speculations, but recently there has been a “leak” which really caught everyone’s attention. In fact, the “leak” appeared on 5channel, a Japanese textboard.

Based on the translation of the “leak”, another character which will join the cast is Erdrick, the legendary hero from the Dragon Quest series. Here’s the full translation of the “leak”:

  • Erdrick
    Stage is Alefgard
    Erdrick (Male) and Erdrick (Female), 2 colors each of Anlucia and the Dragon Quest XI Hero
    Slime appears on screen with a skill
    Achieved through active collaboration on Square’s side
    To the benefit of overseas marketing for the DQ series


This was a second rumor which appeared on the 5channel. The first “leak” appeared on 10 December when there was additional info about Joker’s DLC fighter pack. Here’s what the “leak” said:

  • Joker
    The stage is Mementos
    Jack Frost appears on screen with a skill
    Marketing of P5R (complete version) and P5U (fighting game)P5R is 2019
    P5U is delayed because Arc is busy with the development of a Granblue fighting game.


Five days after this rumor, Cygames published that Arc System Works is working on Granblue Fantasy Versus which is to be expected next year. Hence, the person behind these rumors seems to know more than us.
