Smash Ultimate Update Has Persona 3 And Persona 4 Music, Mii Costumes, And Stages
Reach out to the truth for mass destruction.
Nintendo 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." New arrangements for the Persona 4 boss battle theme "I'll Face Myself" and the iconic Velvet Room theme "Aria Of The Soul" will be on the tracklist--even the Persona 3's final fight song "Battle Hymn Of The Soul" makes the cut. Another great twist is that the stage changes color to match each games color scheme when you play a song from the corresponding Persona game. And the cherry on top is that if Joker wins in the Mementos stage, the victory music from the particular Persona game will play on the results screen. You can check it out the stage variations 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 is available now for $6 as DLC.
