In order to play as Joker, players will either have to buy separately in a DLC or as part of the Fighter Season Pass. Players will be able to use Joker and use his Rebellion powers and his persona spirit Arsene. Joining him is his stage called Mementos. This world is almost like Battlefield but the stage can alter its appearance and the colors can change based on the music being played. Music from Persona 5, 4, and 3 will be included in the game and it will affect the colors of the world. Persona costumes will be added for your custom Mii. Last but not least, Super Smash Bros Ultimate will also be adding spirits based on Persona characters.
