RUMOR - Latest trailer for Persona 5: The Royal sheds new light on a recent Smash Bros. Ultimate datamine

A little ditty 'bout Jack & Jane

Persona 5: The Royal received a new trailer today, and once again, there was no mention of the Switch. That means all hope is lost for a port, right? Not necessarily, as a Smash Bros. Ultimate datamine detail from last month now makes a lot more sense after today's trailer.

Last month, dataminer Dr. Hyper Cake shared the following discovery from Smash Bros. Ultimate's source code.

There is another reference to "Jack" that I feel should be mentioned: "/Jack6_C06_v01_070925.mb_Jane1_pony_hairSystemShape2.mchp"". @jam1garner was the first to notice it in the string dump. I've seen some interesting theories about what "Jane" could refer to relative to Joker.

This information didn't really draw much attention from fans, but today it makes a ton of sense. The new trailer for Persona 5: The Royal showed off a new character for the game. While we didn't get a name for the character in the trailer, we did see that she has a ponytail, and this is prominently displayed in the trailer.

Could this woman in the new trailer be the Jane with a ponytail referenced in the Smash Bros. Ultimate datamine? It certainly does line up, and would make you think that Jane will be an alternate for Joker, who was named 'Jack' in the source code.

Of course, that's all speculation for right now. We'll just have to hang tight and cross our fingers for an announcement confirming all this. As for now, which side of the fence are you on?

Cuphead co-creator wants Cuphead and Mugman in Smash Bros. Ultimate, is 'more than pleased' to make that happen

A brawl is surely brewing!

Cuphead is coming to Switch. There was a time when saying Cuphead could come to Switch seemed like a fever dream of diehard fans at best, or the rumors of evil trolls at worst. Despite all that, Cuphead on Switch is indeed a reality. So what's next for the dynamic duo? If co-creator Jared Moldenhauer has his way, Cuphead and Mugman will get their day in Smash Bros. Ultimate.

"I’ve dreamed of Smash Bros," said Moldenhauer. "[Cuphead and Mugman] belong in there. So basically if fans want it, I couldn’t see how Nintendo wouldn’t want the fans to get what they wanted. I think they would because they support their fans a lot . . . So if Nintendo was keeping their fans happy, then I’d be more than pleased to make that the easiest transition. Just a piece of paper, we don’t need anything. You can have those characters make an appearance."
