Best Buy allegedly leaks what Joker will look like in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Joker from Persona 5 will soon be making his way to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a DLC fighter, and Best Buy may have leaked what the leader of the Phantom Thieves of Hearts will look like in the Nintendo Switch exclusive.

One of the featured items in the Video Games section of the weekly ad of Best Buy for March 31 to April 6 is the Fighters Pass for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which will grant players access to five new fighters that will be added to the brawler’s already massive roster. The ad features an image of Joker, which was revealed at The Game Awards 2018 as the first DLC character for the game.

Joker’s image on the Best Buy ad, however, has never been seen before, and there is speculation that it may be his render for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Joker’s pose in the allegedly leaked image also looks like a possible amiibo pose, so it may be his Nintendo figurine that was revealed.

Until now, Nintendo has not revealed gameplay information for Joker. If the leaked image by Best Buy is indeed his render for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, it would seem that there will be no delay in the character’s expected addition to the game’s roster this April.

Another clue on the imminent arrival of Joker in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was spotted by twitter user SomeKidNick.

For reference, this is what is used to say.

The change from “Approaching: April” to  “Approaching” has some players concerned that Joker’s addition will be pushed back, but the more likely explanation is that Nintendo made the change to avoid redundancy, as April is finally here.

A Reddit thread that discusses the change also contains speculation on when in April Joker will arrive to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. In Persona 5, there are a few significant dates in April in the in-game calendar, including Joker moving in to Cafe LeBlanc on April 9 and awakening his first Persona on April 11. Atlus is also set to reveal more information about the mysterious Persona 5 The Royal on April 24.

In other rumors, the remaining four DLC fighters for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will allegedly be Erdrick from the Dragon Quest series, Ryu Hayabusa from Ninja Gaiden, Steve from Minecraft, and The Marine, also known as Doomguy, from the Doom series.

It's been a bit since we've had a brand-new 2D Mario title, but one fan has taken it upon himself to provide that to those pining for a new entry in the classic platformer franchise. After seven years of hard work, Twitter user Metroid Mike 64 has finished his unofficial Super Mario Bros. 5 using Super Mario Maker 2 on Switch -- and you can play through the entire thing right now.

Metroid Mike 64 shared the news with his followers on Sunday, pointing out that he's been working on the project since 2015 with the goal of creating "a classic Mario game that plays as if Nintendo created it themselves." This, he points out, means a complete lack of the kinds of masochistic and troll levels that are commonly seen in Mario Maker 2, instead providing players with something focused on nostalgia and old-school charm.

The best weapons in Splatoon 3
An inkling with a bow.

Leave it to Nintendo to make the least-traditional online third-person shooter on the market but also have it be such a smashing success that it spawned two sequels. Splatoon 3 is, of course, the latest in the squid-kid franchise that brings in tons of new features, modes, mechanics, and improvements to the series all about spraying ink over fragging enemies. The team didn't just take normal guns and weapons and make them colorful, though. They took full advantage of the concept of spraying ink to craft some of the most unique weapons in any shooter.

The amount of weapons available in Splatoon 3 is the largest yet. Many are returning from past games, but there are plenty of new additions that are tons of fun. That being said, many weapons are rather ... unconventional if you're new to the series. How can a paintbrush or a windshield wiper be a weapon, after all? If you're at a loss for what to arm yourself with for the best chances of winning that close Turf War, here are the best weapons in Splatoon 3.
