After Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s first DLC being confirmed as Joker from Persona 5, and comments from director Masahiro Sakurai and Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime telling fans to expect more along those lines, the sky seems to be the limit with what the next character introduced to the game via DLC might be. And according to a rumor, that character will be: Erdrick, from Dragon Quest.

Before we proceed, let’s talk about why the rumor is worth paying attention to. It’s the same rumor dump reported by Persona Central that also gave us the leak for “Persona 5 R, and that rumor correctly called the existence of Granblue Fantasy Versus by Arc Systems Works about a week before it was announced officially.

So, what does this rumor have to say about Smash’s second DLC? Erdrick will be the character, and his costumes will include some that correspond to the Dragon Quest 11 main character. The stage will be Alefgard, and a Slime (the series mascot for Dragon Quest) will show up on the screen. Unlike with Final Fantasy 7, where Square Enix were actively being sticklers with the inclusion of Cloud in Smash, apparently they were very forthcoming with collaborating with Nintendo on this character and his associated assets. The intent seems to be to “benefit the overseas marketing of Dragon Quest 11”, and I have to assume they mean Dragon Quest 11 S, which is announced for the Switch, but doesn’t have any more information yet.

Once more, this is but a rumor—it may be true, but it may not be, and it’s irresponsible to treat it as fact until it’s confirmed either way. For now, Joker in Smash is all the DLC information we have.
