“Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” will welcome multiple protagonists
from the “Dragon Quest” series as a single downloadable character
called “The Hero.”

While the early “Dragon Quest” games struggled to find an
audience in America due to issues with imports and translations,
the series is wildly celebrated for helping kick start an entire
genre of turn-based roleplaying games in Japan. The “Dragon Quest”
characters are designed by “Dragon Ball” creator Akira Toriyama,
whose distinct art style has also influenced generations of
animators and video game developers.

Much like Bowser Jr and the Koopa Kids, players will be able to
choose between the protagonists of “Dragon Quest XI,” “Dragon Quest
VIII,” “Dragon Quest III,” and “Dragon Quest IV.” They’ll all share
the same moveset, which includes a mix of sword and shield attacks
and a few magic spells.Super Smash Bros Ultimate Hero Dragon Quest
