The official website for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has been updated with new screenshots of the final Fighter added via the first Fighter’s Pass, Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
As director Masahiro Sakurai explained in the presentation, Byleth isn’t just an ordinary swordfighter – he or she will also wield the power of legendary lance, axe, and bow relics that are usually the preferred weapons of the house leaders after the timeskip. They aren’t part of a special gimmick like the other DLC Fighters, but rather a reference to Three Houses ability to basically use any weapons with any class. The only weapon type missing from the representation are the Grappling/Gauntlets weapons that were introduced in Three Houses.
Check out the screenshots below:
Additionally, the official HQ version of Byleth’s trailer in English below:
The Japanese version has also been released for those wishing to experience the Japanese voice acting:
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available on Nintendo Switch. Byleth launches as part of Challenger Pack 5, and will release on January 28, 2020 for $5.99.
Update: Nintendo UK has released a screenshot of Kirby’s transformation for Byleth.
