Update: It's now been confirmed Joker and version 3.0 of Ultimate will be released on 17th/18th April. Click here to find out more.
Remember when a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate render of Joker appeared on the Best Buy website at the end of last month? Well, it looks like it was the real deal after all, as it matches up with an official render spotted within the source code on Nintendo Europe's website.
Once again, the Persona 5 character is expected to arrive in Ultimate before the end of this month as part of the first DLC Challenger Pack. At this point, he'll likely become available when version 3.0 goes live - similar to how Piranha Plant was released alongside version 2.0.
Are you happy with how Joker looks? Have you purchased the DLC yet? Tell us down in the comments.

Awesome, cant wait. Anyone know when he is released?
Oh man, he’s already stolen my heart 😉
Ugh, I thought an update for the 3.0 update and character released. Don't really care for Joker, but...ugh, I want that update!
Galloping Gosh, Batman!
Can't wait for A Link to the Past!
I saw a rumor that the update is coming on Fridayyyyyy
Its the flipping Onceler from the Lorax
Looking cool, Joker!
Render looks good.
@Der Most likely the upcoming Persona 5 The Royal and the full reveal of Persona 5 "S" will have the the details on his release date next Thursday during Atlus's presentation.
Suddenly, all fake leaks will start to use that render.
The closest thing to JoJo we can get on switch. Ill take it
@Der Cuphead and Katana Zero on Thursday then Joker on Friday would be NUTS.
They just released screenshots of everything moments ago!! This is now old news
Just release this dlc so when can move on to the next four characters that will actually excite people to buy the fighter pass. Even the P5 fans dont care about this.. lol waste of a space.
Here's his icon:
@adam9431All we know is that he's coming in April
Ok i take back what i said Joker looking pretty cool in Smash after watching YouTube video. I still think P5 is very overrated though.
new trailer is out!
I see that its coming april 17th!
Smash Bros. Facebook page already released info about Joker!
Looking forward to it. Also, given the trailer, I think we now know one way lvl sharing will work in Super Mario Maker II as well
Release date is posted, might wanna update the article!
@Der it’s coming tomorrow!
@ALinkttPresent about an hour ago they announced he’s coming tomorrow!
Nice surprise and as soon as tomorrow?! That's cool.
Joker's looking rad. Can't wait until tomorrow!
Little slow on the news here Nintendo Life.
Tomorrow can't come sooner!
Stage builder and shareable Mii!!! That's what I wanted! Can't wait to see what people have created!
@Franklin To be fair it's only been an hour
That's quite a long time in journalism, especially online.
I couldn't be less excited for this lol
@Franklin You're not wrong there, though admittedly this was a bit of a shock announcement out of the blue.
Dang, he's out tomorrow eh? Happened to see the video about a couple of hours after it was out, great reveal. The stage builder and sharing looks awesome, hopefully Smash World app comes out soon
Wait, if best buy had a genuine leak, then... *Readies wallet
I just hope we get stage builder with this update and joker
