After much anticipation and bated breaths, Sora from the Kingdom Hearts franchise has been announced as the final DLC fighter to be added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. He will be available beginning October 18.
The news of Sora’s inclusion comes from a video hosted by Super Smash Bros. series director Masahiro Sakurai, where he provided a look into the new character’s move set and showed off the accompanying stage, Hollow Bastion.
Unsurprisingly, Sora will use his Keyblade to attack his foes with ground combos, aerial moves, and side smashes. He can also cast spells like Firaga, Thundara, and Blizzaga for some devastating magical damage, while his Final Smash “Sealing the Keyhole” will send other fighters flying through the sky. Unfortunately, Sakurai wasn’t ready to show this big move off quite yet.
