In a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate-focused Nintendo Direct, Masahiro Sakurai revealed that the next fighter to come to the game will be Byleth, the main protagonist from the Switch JRPG, Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
Byleth’s mobility is low but Sakurai calls them a “distance demon.” He says “them” because Byleth is the name of both the male and female versions of the character.
The Sword of the Creator is Byleth’s default weapon and is used for flurry attacks, strong attacks, dash attacks, etc.
Sakurai mentioned that the inclusion of this character was kept a secret throughout its development and a large amount of Nintendo staff members didn’t even know about the character coming to Smash.
Byleth will be coming to Smash Bros. Ultimate on Jan. 28 as part of the Fighter Pass. For those that have not purchased the DLC pass, you can purchase Byleth separately once the pack releases for only $5.99.
