The Next Fighters Arrive
In case you missed it, Nintendo announced at last month’s Nintendo Direct that Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 would be joining the ever-expanding Super Smash Bros. Ultimate line-up as part of the Fighter Pass 2. Today, Sakurai held a new Sakurai Presents to show off the upcoming character and announced that the dynamic duo would be making their way to the game later today.
