Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s Newest Fighter is Isabelle from Animal Crossing

Animal Crossing's Isabelle has turned over a New Leaf and is joining the roster of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

During today’s Nintendo Direct, this year’s biggest first-party release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was once again highlighted and yet another character was revealed to be joining the game’s roster.

This time around, it’s Isabelle from the Animal Crossing series. Alongside Villager, Isabelle is now the second character from Animal Crossing to join the packed roster of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Per usual, Isabelle’s reveal took the f0rm of a new trailer for the game, though I have to say that this one was much less exciting than some of the others we’ve seen recently. That said, the tone of the trailer was more akin to the laid-back vibe we’ve come to see from Animal Crossing games, so it’s not that huge of a surprise.

This new trailer gives us our first look at Isabelle in action and you can find it down below. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is set to release later this year on December 7, exclusively for the Switch.
