There has been a lot of debate in the Smash community over the competitive capability of Hero, a Fighter DLC character that released for Smash Ultimate during the summer. Nintendo France has now made a decision on whether the character should be allowed in the company’s official Smash Ultimate tournament. Nintendo France has banned Hero from the tournament, as well as every DLC character that will be released after September 23rd. Piranha Plant, Joker and Banjo-Kazooie will not be banned. A tweet relaying the news is down below.
OMG LOL OK so this is huge.
