Sora Smash Ultimate

In the final Super Smash Bros. Ultimate presentation earlier today, the final DLC fighter for the game was revealed. It will be the the highly requested protagonist from the Kingdom Hearts series, Sora. Sora will round out the Fighters Pass Vol. 2, which is available for $29.99 and also includes Min Min, Steve, Sephiroth, Pyra/Mythra, and Kazuya. It will also include Sora's stage from Kingdom Hearts, Hollow Bastion. Sora and the related stages and Mii Fighter Costumes will be released on October 18.

Final Smash Ultimate Fighter

Sora's moveset is based around his signature weapon, the Keyblade. He can also use a number of spells from the Kingdom Hearts series like Firaga, Thundaga, and Blizzaga. He is a light and floaty character with a very high jump. Sakurai claims that his moveset was made to be beginner friendly, unlike many of the recent DLC fighters.

The final DLC wave also includes a few Mii Fighter costumes, available for $0.75 each. They are the Octoling Wig and Judd Hat from Splatoon, as well as a Doom Slayer costume. A selection of Kingdom Hearts music and additional spirits are also included in this DLC.

Another huge surprise is that virtually every Kingdom Hearts game will be coming to Switch in some form in the near future. Three large HD collections, which comprise most Kingdom Hearts games, will be coming at an unknown date. They are KINGDOM HEARTS - HD 1.5 + 2.5 ReMIX - Cloud Version, KINGDOM HEARTS HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue Cloud Version, and KINGDOM HEARTS III + Re Mind Cloud Version. It should be noted that all these collections are cloud versions of the game, meaning they will be streamed from third party servers rather than be downloaded directly to your Switch, requiring a stable internet connection to play.

Sora wraps up three years of consistent news and updates for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It's been a long and exciting journey that will come to a conclusion on October 18. A total of 86 fighters from many series are playable in what might truly be the biggest crossover event in history. Although new content updates are ending, the game has a thriving competitive scene and will hopefully be enjoyed for many years to come.
