I’m sure Geoff Keighley was taken aback and shocked when all the lights cut out while he was presenting at The Game Awards. It can’t possibly have been staged, could it? The event got hacked by the characters from Persona 5, to unveil a new character coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
The game’s barely even out yet, but Nintendo have partnered with Atlus to bring Joker from Persona 5 to the game, announcing him as the first character to be featured in the Fighters Pass of DLC.
There’s no date on it yet, but we do know that Piranha Plant will be the first post-release character added to the game in early next year as an incentive to buy the game close to release. Chances are that the Fighters Pass will start after Piranha Plant has been added to the game.
