Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Adds Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s Pyra/Mythra (VIDEO)
Today’s Nintendo Direct started off with a bang, with Nintendo kicking things off by revealing a brand new fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The latest addition to the game is none other than Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s fiery heroine Pyra, who is joined by Mythra to make up a single new fighter not unlike the Zelda/Sheik fighter from the older Super Smash Bros. games.
The reveal trailer for Pyra initially started off as what appeared to be some sort of sequel or DLC for Xenoblade Chronicles 2, with protagonist Rex searching far and wide for the missing heroine. Once he finds her it’s revealed that she had simply been holding off telling him that she had been invited to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, kicking off a preview of her move set. Check out the reveal trailer below:
Based on the trailer, Pyra operates as, well, ‘just another sword user’, and she features a blend of short range and medium range attacks that appear to focus more on power than on speed. Mythra on the other hand seems to be more of a speed-based fighter that specializes in moving around the arena and striking with multi-hit attacks. Rex appears to partake in each character’s Final Smash attacks. We’ll likely see a deeper dive into their gameplay prior to the new fighter’s release.
A Xenoblade Chronicles 2 stage will also be added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and it appears to move between different environments not unlike the stage added in with Sephiroth. It also appears that Rex may be coming to the game as a Mii Fighter outfit, though we won’t know for sure until Nintendo lets us know either way.
Xenoblade Chronicles 2’s Pyra/Mythra will be coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at some point in March 2021.
