Joker's not the Persona rep I personally would've picked for Smash (That would be Maya, GET OFF MY GODDAMN LAWN KIDS), but he's definitely the Persona rep that makes the most sense. I may bounce off modern Persona Atlus games like a Metal Blade off Quick Man's face, but Persona 5 still was a massive success and a contender/winner on many 2017 GOTY lists.

Now I just hope that Bandai Namco can convince Square Enix to let them use 2B in two fighting games because a literal NieR:Automata vs. Persona 5 battle is something we need in Smash.

But seriously, though, did they announce a release date for these character packs? If I'm gonna buy a Switch+Smash, at least I want to have access to this incentive shortly after my purchase... (and within the next two weeks would be aces for Xmas travel)

No dates

I guess we can now fully acknowledge with certainty that Nintendo has realized that limiting Smash to just Nintendo characters doesn't make sense anymore. They've been just barely holding on to it (Snake was the first step, but Cloud is a pretty dubious addition for a Nintendo-only game, right?) for a while, but now they're embracing the idea of true crossovers.

Will we see more as DLC? I think so! Namco did it with Tekken and Soul Calibur DLC, and we're seeing more and more crossover stuff in games all the time. I thought that Monster Hunter (maybe similar to the one who was in Marvel Infinite?) would make a playable character this time as DLC, and I'm kinda only just even more convinced now. But that would still leave 3 more spots...random speculation time, anyone?

I think they said Feb for the Piranha Plant, so the others will likely be later.

This game is very good! I beat classic mode as DK, and Ive just been playing matches as CPUs since then. I unlocked the squid kids, so Ive been playing as them. Zelda is really good! Bowser is good! Everyone is good!

Love it so far, but when I brought my Switch down I forgot the power cord to the dock! I can charge the handheld, but it's very finicky about using the intended cord for docked. Tomorrow I can have nephew come bring his cord so we can do multiplayer.

While I understand the decision commercially, I am pretty miffed about Joker myself as well, when they could've had far less problematic and representative of SMT overall Jack Frost, f.ex.

Oh well, can't wait to see that Mara assist trophy, at least.

Played this for awhile today. Yeah, it's very good. I'm getting used to the controls still - seems like all smash attacks take way less time to go off than they used to, or something like that...? I get rocked by the CPU on the regular.

I'm excited about Joker but he's such an insular inclusion compared to Jack Frost or almost any other demon who would represent Megami Tensei as a whole. That they disregarded SMT in favor of Persona despite the former actually having an upcoming Switch game is also a bummer, reinforcing the thought that my favorite parts of the overall franchise matter very little.

Played about 20 min this morning before work and unlocked Ness and Sanic. Like how it feels quite a bit, also it loads so much faster than Smash for WiiU did, much less 3DS.

Can anyone confirm if the character selection can be reorganized to go be series rather than date of inclusion? I remember reading that it was an option in some reddit post but it may have been total BS.

You all are forgetting the important thing about Joker. You will be able to kill Mario with a knife and a gun.

Sonic and Bayo are great, and coming back to Smash for the first time since Brawl is like spending five Christmases away from home and finding all a heaping bounty of backlog presents beneath the tree upon your return. And they're all good!

S'fun, is what I'm saying.

They are expected to be finished with the last character by Feb 2020. Sakurai more or less said there's no reason to buy the DLC early. Don't hold your breath.

Yeah but a Persona entry (Q2) featuring Joker is coming to 3DS much sooner, and the last SMT game on a Nintendo console (TMS#FE) was far more Persona-esque.

I'm really curious what stage and music will be included with Joker. If I can play Smash to the Velvet Room theme I'm going to be very happy!

I would really like a Velvet Room-based stage, but as far as what we actually get, I'm going to guess that we'll never see it coming.

Im ambivalent to Joker, but yes on the Velvet Room, if only because some modder will eventually make a Black Lodge from Twin Peaks stage based on it.

Unfortunately Snake was added before they went all out with evil and violence with the likes of Bayonetta. I just want to stab Mario.

Kinda weird to have a kinky adult-fucking teenager in a Nintendo game, but whatever. I assume his final smash will be Morgana showing up and making everyone go to bed?

Joker is not more out of place than Bayonetta or more of an odd pick for his series than Cloud. I bet hell be a fun character.

Nah, Final Smash will be Joker leaving his opponents to get beaten half to death by the corrupt cops from Persona 5's opening.

The natural choice for Jokers final smash would be an All-Out-Attack.

I'll bet the next Nintendo Direct not only gives us some footage of Joker as a fighter, but also announces a P5 Switch port as one Last Surprise.

I have no idea who Joker is so I don't really care but hang on a minute -- Cloud is an odd pick?
