Nintendo Switch upcoming release trailer confirms Smash DLC for this summer

Dragon Quest Hero is coming sooner rather than later

In a fairly innocuous trailer going over upcoming releases, Nintendo basically confirmed that the next Smash Bros. Ultimate DLC will be landing soon. While one could speculate that Dragon Quest’s “Hero” will be heading in July, I’m more sold on it being in the general Summer 2019 window than this month. It certainly is odd to throw in literal seconds of footage alongside a bunch of other July releases, but the lack of a concrete data makes me think otherwise. The title of the video also specifically states “Summer.”

Whether or not the Hero comes out this month, he’s heading to Smash Bros. sooner rather than later. I would have assumed so since he looked pretty damn complete during his E3 reveal. Now we’ll just have to wait and see if Nintendo holds a surprise Direct this week because we’ll get our answer there.
