During today's special "Mr. Sakurai Presents" livestream, creator of the Super Smash Bros. series and director of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate revealed that Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses is joining the enormous roster.
Available in both male and female forms, Byleth is the seventh character from the Fire Emblem series to join the roster. Byleth isn't great at throws or mobility, but they have great distance attacks and varied attacks thanks to a changing Heroes' Relic depending on the direction of your attack.
Byleth joins Smash Ultimate on January 28 as a part of Challenger Pack 5 for $5.99 or included with the Fighter Pass. For more on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, check out how it serves as the culmination of 20 years of work on the series, or check out our interview with Sakurai from the lead up to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
