We have news for the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fan base. Byleth from Fire Emblem is coming to Three Houses!
For those who don’t know, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is a series of crossover fighting video games published by Nintendo. In this video game, separate fictional characters meet and primarily features characters from various Nintendo franchises. Developed by Bandai Namco Studios and Sora Ltd. in 2018, it was published by Nintendo for the Nintendo Switch.
Moving forward, the fifth added challenger was confirmed by the game director Masahiro Sakurai during a special video presentation. Byleth is the last fighter to be included in the game’s Fighters Pass.
Let’s talk a bit more about Byleth. Byleth is the avatar unit of Three Houses. As Byleth communicates with characters, the player can make decisions on how Byleth will respond to dialogue, picking one of the game options.
Based on the player’s choice, the reactions of the character they are speaking to may change. Each response might boost support points for the right response depending on the partner’s interests, or even decrease the partner’s support points if they give the wrong answer.
What will Byleth do in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate? Players can choose to play with both Byleth’s male and female forms. More than just another swordsman for Smash, Byleth will also be able to use other relic weapons, such as an ax, bow, and arrow, from Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
Starting January 28, Byleth will be available for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate together with a new stage and new music from Fire Emblem: Three Houses. The new arena is related to Garreg Mach Monastery and will cycle through four areas of the monastery: the marketplace, reception hall, bridge, and cathedral.
Fighters like Joker from Persona 5, Banjo-Kazooie, Hero from Dragon Quest, and Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury, will be added to the game too.
