Super Smash Bros. UItimate Persona 5

Near the end of The Game Awards 2018, Nintendo revealed that Persona 5’s protagonist, Joker, would be the first DLC character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Nintendo president Reggie Fils-Aime discussed the inclusion, explaining that the reveal of Joker in “Character Pack #1” gives fans a flavour of how Nintendo is approaching the game’s DLC. The game will have five character packs in total, each with one character, one stage related to their respective franchise, and a collection of music.

Fils-Aime also claimed that these would be characters that are “new to the series” and which players “would not anticipate” to be in the game, supporting his bold claim that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is “the biggest crossover in entertainment history.”

A release date for the DLC is yet to be confirmed as the game launches worldwide today exclusively for the Nintendo Switch.

ARMA 3 ‘Contact’ Campaign Will Take Around Six Hours to Complete

ARMA 3

ARMA 3‘s new spin-off expansion will receive a sizable campaign, which is expected to take between four and six hours to complete.

Joris-Jan van ‘t Land, project lead of ‘Contact‘, provided some fresh details regarding the campaign length in an exclusive interview with OnlySP. He confirmed that the campaign will take around four to six hours to complete depending on player ability:

“The length is always hard to specify, because it, of course, depends on each individual player, and how much they explore the terrain beyond the core objectives. We’d estimate normal play sessions lasting between 4 and 6 hours.” He continued, “After that, there’s, of course, a cool box of new toys to tinker with, including the rest of the new Livonia terrain. We also hope community creators get inspired to build their own alien scenarios.”

van ‘t Land also revealed that players will take on the role of a “NATO drone operator” undergoing military training exercises in Livonia. During one of these seemingly routine training exercises, humanity encounters an alien species coming face-to-face with strange technology.

“A big part of the campaign is about uncovering its mystery and exploring what is going on, so we’ll leave most details for players to discover for themselves.” He added, “You will assume the role of a NATO drone operator, deployed to Livonia for military training exercises. Eventually, our alien visitors arrive at the Area of Operations, and from there on out you’re part of an improvised reconnaissance operation to investigate what’s going on.”

ARMA 3 ‘Contact’ is set to release on 25 July 2019 for PC. Our full interview with Bohemia Interactive about the expansion will be available in the coming days.
