If you’re someone who hasn’t played Persona 5, you may have been a bit confused when its protagonist Joker popped up as the first DLC character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate last week.
While Joker himself is a bit enigmatic, don’t worry – you won’t need to put 100 hours into Atlus’ gigantic RPG to get the basics. We’ve got you covered.
Who Is Joker?
Persona 5’s protagonist begins the game as an exchange student who comes to Shujin Academy after getting into some trouble back at home.
Like any good RPG character, he lives a normal school life by day and battles monsters by night, soon becoming embroiled in a fight to save Tokyo by invading evil characters’ mind Palaces to give them a change of heart.
