Nintendo has confirmed that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s final DLC fighter will be Sora, the lead character behind Square Enix’s hugely popular Kingdom Hearts franchise. Available to Fighters Pass Vol. 2 owners beginning on October 18, Sora comes equipped with his trademark Keyblade and a movelist that’s heavily inspired by the original Disney crossovers. He can even leverage some of Kingdom Heart’s magic, such as Firaga and Thundaga.

From Nintendo:

Inspired by his moves in KINGDOM HEARTS, Sora excels at fighting in the air when playing him in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. His jumps are high and his movements are light and soft. While he is easily launched by opponents, Sora’s powerful, combo-based attacks using his mighty Keyblade make him a formidable challenger.

Using a series of intuitive button presses, Sora can perform all types of different combos with his Keyblade, be it straight-on attacks, aerial moves or side smashes. He can also use Magic, just like in KINGDOM HEARTS. Fans will recognize the Firaga, Thundaga and Blizzaga spells, which can be unleashed in various ways to cover the battlefield with a volley of impressive hits. Sora can also activate his Final Smash, called “Sealing the Keyhole,” to send his worthy opponents flying.

Nintendo also revealed that numerous Kingdom Hearts games will be headed to the Switch in the form of cloud titles. They comprise 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.

Nintendo will share more information regarding these titles and their release dates at a later date.
