To rewind only a handful of weeks or so, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate welcomed its latest addition to the ongoing cross-over brawler series. In that, Final Fantasy VII antagonist Sephiroth officially made his cut into the game which shook the internet leading to the characters release. But the next question is – who would further dismantle any expectations in future reveals?

Well leading up to this week’s Nintendo Direct set for Wednesday, Nintendo did disclose that a Super Smash Bros. Ultimate would be taking place during the pre-recorded livestream. In anticipation for the reveal, many fans went on to project that Sonic the Hedgehog’s Dr. Robotnik would be the likely candidate for the latest recruit to join the battle.

But in the trailer that went live on Wednesday, Xen0blade Chronicles 2’s Pyra and Mythra will both be welcomed to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. You can watch the reveal trailer in the video below:

Gathered from the gameplay presenting the new fighter, Pyra will be granted the ability to transform into Mythra when on the stage. In extension to that, each character’s playstyle will differ when transitioning from one to another. Depending on either playing Pyra or Mythra will also initiate the Burning Sword or Sacred Arrow ultimate smash respectively with Rex.

When skimming over the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate official website, details regarding the two new additions are pretty light. But, it does issue we can expect the newest duo to arrive in March 2021. One thing worth noting, Pyra/Mythra while two characters only takes up one slot for Fighter Pass Vol. 2 which is a plus!
