If you want to be able to play as this character, you'll need to update your game software to Version 4.0.0 and either purchase or already own the Fighters Pass (£22.49 / $24.99) or Hero Challenger Pack (£5.39 / $5.99).
The Hero comes with the Yggdrasil's Altar stage and several orchestrated music tracks from the Dragon Quest series. There are also alternate character designs representing the main characters from several of the Dragon Quest games:
He can take the form of the protagonists from DRAGON QUEST XI S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition, the latest DRAGON QUEST title coming to Nintendo Switch on 27th September; DRAGON QUEST III: The Seeds of Salvation; DRAGON QUEST IV: Chapters of the Chosen; and DRAGON QUEST VIII: Journey of the Cursed King. This is the first time ever that all four heroes from these DRAGON QUEST games are fighting together.
New Dragon Quest-themed Mii Fighter outfits are now also available. Each outfit is available for £0.70 / $0.75 each and is not included with the Fighters Pass. Take a look at each one below:
Apart from the Hero, Version 4.0.0 of Ultimate adds an in-game online tourney mode, a "Very Easy" setting in the single-player Adventure mode and the ability to predict the winner in Spectate mode. You can read more about the patch notes here.
