Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Last week, Pyra/Mythra was added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as the latest DLC character. The two-in-one fighter is the new representative from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 instead of Rex, who has the starring role.

You may recall that Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai talked about the decision to feature Pyra/Mythra over Rex a bit during a presentation from earlier in the month. In his latest column in Famitsu though, he went into a bit of extra detail about the thought process behind it all.

We’ve now gone ahead and prepared a complete translation of Sakurai’s piece from the Japanese magazine. Continue on below to read it in full.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be hosting its latest tournament this week. For the latest theme, it’s all about characters that transform. You’ll only be able to use fighters that turn into something different, change colors, or change the shape of what they’re wearing.

The new tournament goes live on March 12. It will last for a total of three days.


Have you played Persona 5 Strikers or Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection on your Switch? If so, you’re eligible to receive new spirits in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Those that have save data for Persona 5 Strikers will receive a spirit for Sophia. For Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection, Arthur is the bonus.

Both of these spirits may appear for all players at a later date, though there’s no word on that just yet.

The new 11.0.0 update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is largely intended to add data for the latest DLC featuring Pyra/Mythra and new Mii Fighter costumes. On top of that though, fighter adjustments have also been implemented.

Nintendo has now published the full patch notes for version 11.0.0. Continue on below to read them in full.
