It looks like the release date for Persona 5's Joker as the latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC character has been updated to read just "Approaching." Which could mean that we're getting the character any day now. Or that, like Persona 5 itself, the character's release got a bit delayed.

Fans first noticed the change and headed to Twitter.

As Dualshockers points out, there are other options for what exactly the update could mean, as Nintendo may have updated the screen simply to avoid redundancy.

None of this speculation has stopped fans from creating theories on when exactly Joker will hit Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, of course. Some fans on Reddit have speculated that the date for Joker's release will be significant in regards to the plot of Persona 5.

After all, the game starts in April.

  • On April 9th, Joker moves into Cafe Leblanc, which starts his journey.
  • On April 11th, Joker awakes his Persona in the first Castle
  • April 18th is the day the game's tutorial ends

But there's also the fact that on April 24th, 2019, we'll get more information on Persona 5: The Royal. You know, the version of Persona 5 that fans hope will make it to the Nintendo Switch.

So basically, we're just going to have to wait and see, like always.
