Echoes of an elusive smash?

After lots of speculation and various leaks of dubious authenticity, the (unnamed) Hero from Dragon Quest 11: Echoes of an Elusive Age has been announced as the next Super Smash Bros Ultimate DLC fighter. Announced today at E3, the Hero will release later this summer, and appears to have a couple of tricks up his sleeve already including a very cool looking JRPG attack menu with all the greats like “Sizzle”, “Psyche Up”, “Oomph” and “Snooze.”
