Here's What Fans Are Saying About Byleth Joining Smash Bros.

After today’s announcement that Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses is coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, reactions are mixed.

The Three Houses protagonist is the fifth and final character in Smash Ultimate’s first Fighters Pass. Director Masahiro Sakurai also announced that six more characters are on the way in Fighters Pass Volume 2, so regardless of your feelings on Byleth, there are still plenty more characters to look forward to.

Some Fans Are Disappointed With ‘Another Fire Emblem Character’

With Byleth’s addition, there are now eight Fire Emblem characters on the Smash Ultimate roster. Some believe that’s too many representatives from Nintendo’s strategy RPG series.

Reactions to the False Dante Predictions

Some fans were convinced that Dante from the Devil May Cry series would be the fifth DLC fighter. Instead, we got a fighter that not very many people saw coming.

Three Houses Fans Are Excited

Fire Emblem: Three Houses was a hit last year, winning the People’s Choice award at The Game Awards. Some Fire Emblem fans are happy to see more success for Three Houses.

Excitement for Cuphead’s Mii Fighter Costume

Cuphead is joining Smash Ultimate as a costume for the Mii Gunner, and many players are thrilled to see more indie representation in Smash Bros.

Byleth will join Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on January 28. On the same day, you’ll be able to pre-purchase Fighters Pass Volume 2, which comes with a Ancient Armor Mii costume from Breath of the Wild. You can see what we thought of the last challenger pack by reading our Terry Bogard DLC review.
