The Nintendo Direct E3 2019 opened with an exciting swordfight between Link and what appeared to be a corrupted Meta Knight and Marth. The battle got all the more intense as it was a 2-on-1 affair before the hero from Dragon Quest XI stepped in to save him. We then saw "The Hero Draws Near!", followed by several action scenes in combat to top off the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Dragon Quest XI reveal.

Things got stepped up a notch when saw several more characters from the Dragon Quest series are also being added in the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Dragon Quest XI reveal... in a sense.

The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Dragon Quest XI crossover features not one but four heroes from the legendary role-playing game franchise.

Essentially, the Hero can be chosen as one of the many protagonists from past Dragon Quest games. Here's the list of games featuring heroes that you'll be able to play as in this upcoming character DLC:

  • Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation
  • Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen
  • Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King
  • Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age
A shoutout to the Dragon Quest franchise will also be coming to this DLC in the form of the Hero's Final Smash: characters from multiple Dragon Quest games will unite together and blow away your opponent with fearsome power!

These new characters will be coming to the game later in Summer 2019. No price has been announced, but it will probably cost you the same as other previous character DLC for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate $5.99 or $24.99 as part of the Fighter's Pass.
