Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s next playable fighter, the Hero from Dragon Quest, is coming to the Nintendo Switch fighting game Tuesday, July 30. In a new video, Super Smash Bros. series director Masahiro Sakurai offered an extended look at Hero, the rest of his associated downloadable content, and a preview of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s 4.0 update.
The Hero of Dragon Quest can take the form of the protagonist from four games in the franchise: Dragon Quest 3: The Seeds of Salvation (aka Dragon Warrior 3 for NES), Dragon Quest 4: Chapters of the Chosen (aka Dragon Warrior 4 for NES), Dragon Quest 7: Journey of the Cursed King (PlayStation 2), and Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age (which is coming to Nintendo Switch on Sept. 27). Players will be able to use Dragon Quest spells like Zap, Frizz, and Woosh, pitting four Dragon Quest heroes against each other for the first time.
In addition to Hero, Tuesday’s DLC also includes a new Dragon Quest-inspired stage, Yggdrasil’s Altar, and eight orchestrated music tracks from classic Dragon Quest titles. There are also new Mii Fighter costumes inspired by Dragon Quest, including an Erdrick’s Armor costume and a Slime hat.
Version 4.0 of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate also launches Tuesday. The update includes a new “very easy” difficulty setting for Adventure mode, an online tourney mode, and the option to predict the winner of a match in Spectator mode. Final Smash meters also drain and expire now.
The Hero from Dragon Quest will be available to purchase individually for $5.99, but he’s also included as part of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighter Pass. The pass comes with five different bundles, each including a fighter, stage, and music. The entire pass will cost $24.99. Hero is the second DLC character for Ultimate, following Joker from Persona 5. The next fighter coming to Smash Bros. is Banjo-Kazooie, due sometime in the fall.
