Nintendo kicked off their E3 2019 Direct presentation in style, by announcing the next DLC character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. True to the leaks, and true to Nintendo’s commitment to teaming up with third parties for Smash, the next DLC character for the crossover fighter is the Luminary, the protagonist of Dragon Quest 11.

A CG trailer is wha kicked it off, as always, followed by a pretty good looking gameplay demonstration of the Luminary’s moves. Music (and slimes) from Dragon Quest were also part of the equation, of course, while we also got a look at other Dragon Quest protagonists in the game as swappable characters. Take a look below.

The Luminary (or the Hero) will be joining Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s roster of characters in Summer 2019. No specific release date was given, but obviously that’ll be coming soon, as we get closer to the DLC’s launch. Stay tuned for more updates as the Direct continues.
