Nintendo just dropped a 15-minute video detailing everything Persona-related that's coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and there is a lot to unpack. The video outlined exactly how Persona 5's Joker works as a fighter and other content in the version 3.0 spring update, but that's not all. It also revealed the Mementos-themed stage with a few twists that'll warm the hearts of long-time Persona fans.
The new content includes homages to Persona 3 and Persona 4 with the battle theme songs "Mass Destruction," "Reach Out To The Truth," and "Time To Make History." A new arrangement for the Persona 4 boss battle theme "I'll Face Myself" and Persona 3's final fight song "Battle Hymn Of The Soul" will be on the tracklist. To top it all off, the stage changes color to match each games color scheme. You can check it out below.
Even oddly accurate Mii renditions of the protagonists from Persona 3 and 4 are featured in the Mii Fighters costume pack. A brand new remix of the song "Beneath The Mask" (which you can hear playing in the reveal trailer) along with plenty of other familiar tunes from Persona 5's incredible soundtrack will also be included in Smash Ultimate. In the video you can see the rest of the Phantom Thieves in the game, Joker's stylish victory screen, and how the all-out attack is incorporated. All the content in the update drops Wednesday, April 17.
