Dragon Quest Hero is Coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Dragon Quest Hero is Coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

A true hero comes to the Switch.

The newest fighter joins Super Smash Bros. Ultimate and it's none other than the Hero from Dragon Quest 11. Simply named, "The Hero," he's joined by Heroes from past Dragon Quest games as Echo Fighters.

While Dragon Quest 11's Hero is the new fighter, Echo Fighters in the form of Heroes from previous Dragon Quest games will help out. And Dragon Quest Hero's Ultimate Smash move summons forth every hero in the series for a final attack.

Dragon Quest Hero is coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate this summer as part of the Fighter's Pass. Previous characters released as part of the pass include Joker from Persona 5.
