Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s DLC Fighters Pass will introduce five new characters to the game over the course of 2019 and 2020.
The five characters were kept a mystery by Nintendo when the Fighters Pass was first announced in November 2018. No one knew who they are or when they’ll be unveiled, which makes every future Nintendo Direct a potential character reveal.
The first of these characters, Joker from Atlus’ Persona series, was revealed just before the game launched on Dec. 8 at The Game Awards 2018.
But when will this character be released?
Joker doesn’t have an exact release date yet, but he’s expected to become available in 2019 as part of the first challenger’s pack. Joker should come out after Piranha Plant, who’s the first DLC character coming to the game before Feb. 15, 2019.
After Joker’s release, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has four more DLC characters in the works as part of the DLC Fighters Pass. Who those characters are at the moment, however, remains a mystery.
