"He can take the form of the protagonist from 'Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age, ' "Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation, ' 'Dragon Quest IV: Chapters of the Chosen" and 'Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King'". It was at this moment there was a collective sigh, with everyone assuming there wouldn't be a release date reveal anytime soon.

At the very start of Nintendo's E3 2019 Direct presentation, an overture beloved by millions of RPG fans in Japan bellowed triumphantly over shots of the company's mascots waging war, which could mean only one thing: Dragon Quest was coming to Smash Bros. Yep, after waiting many years for its arrival, it appears we'll finally get our hands on this epic role-playing title on 27th September.

The new trailer also detailed some of the improvements we can expect from this upgrade: an expanded storyline, more rideable monsters (featuring a slime bouncy ball), travel to past Dragon Quest worlds, a battle rush system, and the ability to switch between HD and 16-bit graphical styles.

We're not sure if it'll be at San Diego Comic-Con or The D23 Expo, but there should be something new before the end of the summer. The Skywalker Saga is coming to Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC and Nintendo Switch next year.

Ultimate's DLC Fighters Pass has already brought one new fighter into the game, but the next two fighters were revealed during Nintendo's E3 Direct.
