Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s final DLC fighter is Sora from Kingdom Hearts

Kingdom Hearts protagonist Sora has been revealed as the very last fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, arriving October 18, 2021.

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.
