In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

Joker, the main protagonist of Persona 5, was announced as the first DLC newcomer for Ultimate at The Game Awards 2018. He was later added in, along with Mementos, multiple spirits, and multiple music tracks on April 17th, 2019. Tsubasa Oribe from the Fire Emblem crossover title Tokyo Mirage Sessions #FE also appears a Spirit, which can be enhanced into her Carnage form.

Trivia[edit]

  • Atlus is the second third-party company to be introduced to the Super Smash Bros. series as DLC, the first being Square Enix.
    • Despite being featured in Smash 4 as a developer of Wonderful 101, PlatinumGames was not formally introduced as a third-party company with playable characters until the last DLC of Smash 4 with Bayonetta.
