Yesterday, Super Smash Bros announced the fifth and final Fighters Pass DLC roster. Last but not least. It’s byleth of the Fire Emblem series, as previously announced. While many believe that Nintendo is choosing to be part of the final battle for this DLC bundle, Byleth is part of a big update to Super Smash Bros. Titled 7.0 Ultimate. In both men and women’s versions, Byleth is the narrator of the fire emblem: Three buildings. A new stage, which is built off of the school / cathedral in Three Houses, is added to the story. Obviously, new music and Mii Fighter costumes will be included in the update, as with previous updates.
Smash Bros. normally goes far beyond just a new character when an update like this is made. We tend to make a number of changes, enhance gameplay and enhancements as far as possible to existing characteristics. Character movements are sometimes changed, which can affect how different fighters are tracked, so it’s always a good idea to look at what happens to your main fighter when upgrading to seven drops in scale.
The lineup of fighters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate continues to grow. Today, in a lengthy video presentation, Smash director Masahiro Sakurai revealed that Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses will be the next character added to the Nintendo Switch game. Three Houses first launched last summer, bringing the long-running strategy game to the Nintendo Switch for the first time. The game differed from past entries with a focus on social elements as well as turn-based combat. Byleth was the main playable character, a professor at a military school; both male and female versions were available, and they’ll both be options in Byleth’s Smash incarnation as well.
According to Sakurai, Byleth’s mobility is low, but the character is good at fighting from a distance. Byleth wields the hero’s relic — a powerful weapon from Three Houses — which changes depending on the direction you attack. While Byleth is the first character from Three Houses to join Smash, the game is filled with a huge range of Fire Emblem characters already. Alongside Byleth, a new Three Houses stage is also being added to the game, based on the Garreg Mach Monastery where players spend most of their time in the latest Fire Emblem. Likewise, 11 songs from Three Houses are being added to Ultimate as well. Nintendo has been steadily updating Ultimate with DLC characters since the game launched back in 2018. Byleth joins the likes of Joker from Persona 5, the hero from Dragon Quest XI, Banjo-Kazooie, and Fatal Fury’s Terry Bogard.
