Sora joins the battle!

The iconic Keyblade wielder arrives to the battlefield. Sora from #KingdomHearts will be the final Super #SmashBrosUltimate DLC fighter! Look forward to the release of Sora in Challenger Pack 11 on 10/18.

Nintendo has decided to tap the long-running Square Enix x Disney franchise, Kingdom Hearts for its final Super Smash Bros. fighter and stage. Sora, the game’s main protagonist, and his key blade will soon be available in Nintendo’s mascot fighter. Sora was the requested fighter when in a poll when Super Smash Bros. ultimate initially released, and he has finally arrived. 

Alongside Japanese and English voices available at launch, Sora excels at airborne and midair combat and his biggest weakness is his weight. There will also be multiple costume options/color variations from various Kingdom Heats releases over the years along with five spirits.

Normal Moves include a neutral attack, side tilt attack, neutral air attack, and forward air attack. There’s three hit combos with canceling in tact here, directly affecting whether or not the opponent gets launched back or in the air. Sora also has a series of elemental special moves: Firaga, Blizaga, and Thundaga. 

You can see everything in action with an explainer from Mr. Sakurai in the video below:

Be sure to check out last week’s Nintendo Direct presentation where we got a good look at Chocobo GP, Kirby and the Forgotten Land, Splatoon 3, and the long-awaited Bayonetta 3. But the real highlight from the event was the Nintendo 64 and SEGA Genesis titles coming to Switch Online alongside the new wireless controllers. You can get all of the available details on that in our feature piece, and we also have a series of new details and gameplay footage from Pokémon Legends Arceus as well as Pokémon Brilliant Diamond/Shining Pearl
