Whether the announcement of Byleth as the fifth and final playable fighter from Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s Fighter Pass during Masahiro Sakurai’s presentation yesterday left you feeling overjoyed or dismayed, I think most Smash fans can agree that reception to the announcement of Cuphead’s presence in Smash was overwhelmingly positive. In addition to a widespread positive reaction from the Smash community, Cuphead’s developers, Studio MDHR, have also shared their thanks to Sakurai and Nintendo for the opportunity to have one of indie gaming’s rising stars make an appearance in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

 

 
The Cuphead Mii Costume will become available in the eShop alongside Byleth and a selection of other Mii Costumes on January 28th, and will come bundled with a music track, Floral Fury.
