posted on by Jennifer Sherman
Nintendo announced during its Nintendo Direct E3 presentation that the Dragon Quest game series' Hero will join the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate crossover fighting game. The character will join the game as part of the Fighters Pass DLC content this summer. The presentation also revealed a promotional video for the character's appearance in the game.
In addition, the title characters from Rare's Banjo-Kazooie game series will also join the game this fall.
The game shipped for the Nintendo Switch last December. The game includes all previous playable characters and support eight-player battles. New characters include Animal Crossing: New Leaf's Isabelle, Metroid's Ridley, Castlevania's Simon, Donkey Kong's King K. Rool, and Pokemon's Incineroar.
Several other characters are joining the game as "Echo Fighters" for other characters. Echo Fighters include Street Fighter's Ken (for Ryu), Castlevania's Richter (for Simon), Fire Emblem's Chrom (for Ike), Metroid's Dark Samus (for Samus), Daisy (for Peach), Lucina (for Marth), and Dark Pit (for Pit). Echo Fighters have moves and properties that closely match another character's.
