Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s Pyra/Mythra Now Available (VIDEO)
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fans officially have one (two?) more anime-esque sword fighter to play with. As of now, Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s Pyra and Mythra are now available within the game. Earlier today, Super Smash Bros. creator Masahiro Sakurai released a video showing off some of the new fighter’s gameplay while also confirming today’s release date.
As revealed during today’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate presentation, Pyra and Mythra: The Pair are now available as part of the Challenger Pack 9, which runs for $10.20. This $10.20 also includes the new Cloud Sea of Airest stage and loads of music tracks. Alternatively, they are instead available through the game’s second Fighter Pass, which runs for $29.99. Sakurai also revealed the new Ghosts ‘n Goblins and Monster Hunter-themed Mii Fighter costumes. Here’s the full reveal:
For those unaware, Pyra and Mythra combine to form the latest single new fighter within Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, not unlike the Zelda/Sheik combo from the older games within the series. They join the recently added Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII, Min Min from Arms, and Steve/Alex from Minecraft. Here’s the full list of what’s included in Challenger Pack 9:
- Fighter: Pyra/Mythra
- Stage: Cloud Sea of Alrest
- Music: 16 tracks (*1)
- Smash tag icons: 4
- Spirits: Pyra (Fighter), Mythra (Fighter) (*2)
- Spirit Board additions: Rex, Nia, Tora, Poppi α, Mòrag, Zeke and new spirits from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 added in Ver. 11.0.0. (*3) (*4)
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now available exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
