At this year’s The Game Awards, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s third fighter in the second Fighters Pass (and the eighth DLC fighter overall) recently revealed as being the Final Fantasy 7 villain, One-Winged Angel Sephiroth himself. It would have been an exciting announcement regardless, but the fact that Cloud is already in the game (and the incredibly reveal trailer), meant that it was even more so.
Nintendo recently confirmed that as with all new DLC fighters, game director Masahiro Sakurai will be hosting a livestream tomorrow, on December 17, to share new details on Sephiroth and how he will work in the game, as well as new details on the stage and music that’s being added to the game along with him. Via the official Smash Bros Japanese Twitter account, it’s also been confirmed that the presentation will be about 35 minutes long- so you can expect a meaty livestream with plenty of details revealed.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available exclusively on Nintendo Switch. Stay tuned for all the details on Sephiroth tomorrow.
