After months of waiting, Persona 5’s main protagonist Joker has finally arrived in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

As seen in the video below, Joker will use his knife and gun in combat, and can also summon his persona, Arsene, to assist him in battle. Joker also has access to his Final Smash, which will see the Phantom Thieves join the action to beat down his opponent.

Joker is available now to players who own the Fighters Pass or purchase Challenger Pack 1, which contains Joker, the Mementos stage, and music from the Persona series for $5.99. As shown in the video above, the Mementos stage will change color depending on the music being played.

Also going live today is update 3.0 for the game, which includes the new Stage Builder feature. This new addition lets players create custom stages with moving platforms, spinning traps, and more using in-game tools.

Also included in this update is the Video Editor, which introduces the ability to splice saved replays from the game into a single video with subtitles and sound effects, and then share it online using the newly added Smash World service. Smash World is a new service available via the Nintendo Switch Online app that lets players share and view created stages and videos.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available now on Nintendo Switch.
