Update: It looks like the hero will arrive in North America later today, while the European edition will technically drop tomorrow, July 31, due to differences in time zones. This is compounded by the recent gross blunder on Nintendo of Europe by Twitter.
Original article: Quest for Dragons The character will be played in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate later today, Nintendo confirmed.
The announcement comes from a video presentation organized by none other than the show's director, Masahiro Sakurai, who also gives us an in-depth look at how the fighter will play during the game. Along with the release of Hero later today, there will also be a free software update that adds online tournament play, a one-player "Adventure" setup, and the ability to predict the winner in Spectate mode, among others functions.
