Okay, so Seto Kaiba from the Yugi-Oh franchise isn’t officially confirmed as DLC for Super Smash Bros Ultimate – but thanks to modder Demonslayer8, you can now play as the card-wielding edge-lord and it’s simply glorious.
Like the other Smash Bros content created by Demonslayer8, the Kaiba mod is only a model replacement for the DLC character Joker (Persona 5), so you won’t be summoning a gigantic dragon to smite your enemies. Regardless, Kaiba looks absolutely stunning, and the attention to detail is phenomenal. Demonslayer8 has created many other mods, including adding Master Chief (Halo), Midoriya Izuku (My Hero Academia) and our lord and saviour Shaggy (Scooby-Doo) to the game’s roster.
Unfortunately, the rate at which official DLC characters are being made for the game is somewhat lacking, though we got Banjo-Kazooie and “The Hero” (Dragon Quest) confirmed last week during Nintendo’s E3 conference. However, it’s great to see that members of the modding community are taking matters into their own hands.
As badass as the mod is, install this at your own risk. The Nintendo Switch modding process isn’t for the faint of heart, and it isn’t something I’d recommend personally. Nonetheless, you have to admit that it’s a pretty dope mod that any gamer can appreciate from a distance.
