You can sit back down, Rex.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players have been wondering when the game would get some representation from Xenoblade Chronicles 2, one of the last left recent successful Switch games without a character in the Smash roster. Well, it seems that wait has now come to an end.
To kick off the newest Nintendo Direct, Nintendo announced that Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will be the next DLC fighter(s) in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s second fighters pass. Players can switch between the two forms of the Aegis at any time, both coming with their own unique powers. Though Rex isn’t a fighter, he will show up for the Final Smash. Meanwhile, players can also expect a Xenoblade Chronicles 2-themed stage and music additions to the game.
Pyra and Mythra will be joining the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster some time in March, so there isn’t long left before we get to play as the newest addition to the fighter. More details will follow soon, so stay tuned.
