Super Smash Bros. Ultimate gets some heroes from Dragon Quest XI as playable characters.
Great news for both Smash Bros. fans and Dragon Quest fans. Announced at the Nintendo Direct for this years E3 conference, it looks like our favorite heroes from Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age will be added to the already impressive line-up in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Now you’ll have the ability to fight as up to four new characters from the popular series.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate character list seems to be ever expanding. The original line-up began with 69 characters, and two more were quickly added ad DLC. Smash Bros. has always been there delivering us the ability to play as our favorite classic Nintendo characters, and pit them against each other in a fight to K.O. Ultimate now allows us to play as such epic characters as Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII and Ridley from the Alien series. Now the list looks that much bigger with the inclusion of possibly 4 more characters, all from Dragon Quest XI.

Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age was exceptionally well received, praised for its visuals and classic turn based combat. It has stood side by side with the Final Fantasy series for quite some time, so it makes sense that these popular characters would finally join in the great brawl.

Update: One of the characters is from Dragon Quest XI but the other three are from other games of the Dragon Quest series. Together they are collectively known as The Hero.
