He’ll join Shantae, Skyrim’s Dovahkiin, and Lloyd from Tales of Symphonia

Joining Dante and Dragonborn are Shantae from her self-titled series and Lloyd from Tales of Symphonia. Shantae is the only Brawler Mii Fighter costume; the rest are Swordfighter costumes.

All four will be available for purchase June 29, the same day that Kazuya Mishima from the Tekken series comes to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as downloadable content. Each Mii Fighter costume costs $0.75.

The inclusion of Dante would appear to exclude the character’s appearance on the main Smash Bros. roster. Sakurai said that the next character coming to Ultimate as part of the Fighters Pass Vol. 2 will be the game’s last.

Lloyd, Dante and Dragonborn are all swordfighter types and Shantae will be a brawler type. Shantae also comes with a music track from her series of games. All costumes each cost 99p (US 75¢).

The announcement was part of a presentation intended to show new DLC character Kazuya Mishima from 3D fighting game series Tekken. However director Masahiro Sakurai announced that the upcoming 11th Challenger Pack will be the last.

Towards the end of the video Sakurai explains that “the next DLC fighter will be the last one, saying: “There won’t be any more after that,” before calling the series his “life’s work”.

“It’ll be a while before that announcement, but it’ll be available this year as planned, so please be patient. […]Until then, we hope you enjoy playing as Kazuya Mishima. Goodbye!”
