Persona 5 Fans are Having a Field Day Over the Joker Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Announcement

Last week's Game Awards 2018 revealed that Persona 5's Joker would be coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and fans have been going wild.

It doesn’t matter if you beat Persona 5’s 100-hour campaign, everyone lost their mind when Joker was announced for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at The Game Awards 2018. Someone on our staff (who does not wish to be identified) actually ran from their computer to tell their family in the middle of the announcement.

With all of this pent up hype for the character’s release in March, the Persona 5 community seems to be going wild with cross-over creations already. Check out some of the recent posts that have taken over the Persona 5 Subreddit:

There’s just something so heart-warming about seeing Bowser finally reconnect with his son and recognizing his best life. Though my favorite comment in the thread has to be “Bowsette confirmed for Persona 5 DLC.”

Fans have even been speculating as to the lore reasons for Joker being added to Nintendo’s party fighting game. Some believe he’s here to investigate what’s really going on with Yoshi.

Someone even went through the trouble of editing this into the game. Check it out:

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will look to answer a lot of burning questions that fans have right now such as “What will I do if Joker doesn’t match my playstyle!?” or “Who would you choose to be your Smash Bros. Waifu?” Luckily User Mgx0 drew a mock up of what that second question could entail. “Too many waifus ruins your laifu!”

Before you ask, yes Detective Pikachu is supposed to be Morgana, and yes, Snake is in that picture. Finally, it’s finally time someone showed us Meta Knight’s true form. What’s really behind that mask?

There are a lot more fan-made crossover concepts for Persona 5 and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on the game’s Subreddit and you should definitely check them out because these fans put time and effort into creating them.

We’ll that’s all for this week’s edition of “Noah Buttner Moonlights as a Weeb.” I really can’t wait for Joker to finally join the roster, but for now I’ll keep maining Snake and listening to the Persona 5 Original Sound Track.
