Nintendo has announced the final Super Smash Bros. Ultimate character as part of the first Fighter Pass. In a special presentation by game director Masahiro Sakurai showed a short trailer announcing the new character: Byleth, from Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
As in Three Houses, you can play as male or female Byleth, and you have access to the powerful Heroes Relics from the game as weapons. Those will change depending on your stick direction, and they serve different purposes. The sword is good for dash attacks, while the whip is a flurry attack. But Byleth has low mobility, which Sakurai said is slightly better than Robin’s.
Byleth will be available on January 28 for $5.99 individually, or as part of the Fighters Pass. This is the fifth and final character as part of the Fighters Pass, which costs $25 USD / $37 AUD / £20 GBP. The other four have included Joker (Persona 5), Hero (Dragon Quest), Banjo and Kazooie (Banjo Kazooie), and Terry Bogard (Fatal Fury). This marks the end of this pass, but Nintendo has already promised that more characters are coming.
