In celebration of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate releasing on the Switch, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé hopped up on stage with Geoff Keighley at this year's Game Awards to reveal a new character that will be included in the game's first DLC pack.

Representing the Japanese company Atlus will be Joker from Persona 5. Here's the official Twitter confirmation:

The game's first Challenger Pack will also include a new stage and various music tracks. In total, there are five packs planned for Ultimate that can be purchased in a single transaction known as the Fighters Pass bundle. At this point in time, there's no information about when exactly these DLC packs will be released.
