Sora’s moveset and default appearance are based on the original Kingdom Hearts, though he has a variety of costumes from throughout the series. This includes costumes from II, 3D, and III, along with multiple alternate forms from II and III. There’s even a design based on Sora’s look in the Kingdom Hearts II world Timeless River, complete with it’s own unique facial expressions.
He uses a mix of melee keyblade combos — it has multiple auto-combos, even in the air — and magic attacks. Only one magic attack is available at a time, with the spell changing after every use.
Sora comes with Hollow Bastion as a new stage, mirroring the world from Kingdom Hearts. Multiple characters from the franchise appear as stained-glass artwork in the background as well.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai revealed that Sora was the most requested character from the Smash for Wii U/3DS Fighter Ballot, but adding him took longer than other fighters — you can probably thank Disney for that.
