The next character for “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” has been announced, and it’s none other than the protagonist of the “Dragon Quest” series. Known only as “The Hero,” this new character is set to reshape the current meta depending on how effective his skillset will be.

The new trailer of “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” has already provided some insight to Hero’s abilities, with Kamikazee being considered as his most overpowered move. Thus, players can’t wait to get their hands on Hero to see how exactly he’ll perform, Polygon reported.

This is especially true since his moveset has been revealed as an homage to the turn-based battle system seen in the “Dragon Quest” games. There will be a pop-up menu that’ll appear on top of his percentage meter that will provide players various options on what ability to unleash. Unfortunately, details about Hero’s gameplay has yet to be released, and we’ll just have to wait for “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” to provide us with a more in-depth analysis how exactly he’ll be played.

Aside from this front, “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” will also be providing multiple skins for Hero, which have been taken from the “Dragon Quest” series. He’ll have skins based on his appearance from “Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age,” “Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation,” “Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King,” and “Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen.”

Regarding his price, Hero will be available for purchase individually, although he’s also part of the Fighter Pass for “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.” The entire pass will cost $24.99, will come with five bundles, and will include different stage, music, and fighter. Hero will be joining the roster sometime this summer.

Meanwhile, “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” is also gearing up to add another character into its ensemble, this time coming from the West. The fighter – or fighters – in question is none other than Banjo-Kazooie, the protagonists from a title of a similar name. The duo is expected to hop on the fray this coming fall, The Verge reported.
