Challenger Pack 11: Sora
In a video hosted by Masahiro Sakurai, the Super Smash Bros. series director revealed that Sora from the Kingdom Hearts series will be the final downloadable content fighter added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on October 18, completing an extraordinary, nearly three-year journey of new fighters across video game history joining the game’s roster. Sora is part of the “Challenger Pack 11” downloadable content, which also includes a new stage and a selection of music tracks from the Kingdom Hearts franchise. The video presentation provided a deep dive into the new fighter’s move set, as well as a detailed look at the newly added Hollow Bastion stage.
Challenger Pack 11 is part of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2, which can be purchased for a suggested retail price of $29.99 and also includes Min Min from the ARMS game, Steve & Alex from Minecraft, Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII, Pyra / Mythra from the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 game, and Kazuya from the Tekken franchise. Challenger Pack 11 can also be purchased separately for $5.99.
The protagonist of the Kingdom Hearts series is Sora, a young boy who wields the iconic Keyblade and traverses Disney and Pixar worlds, battling enemies known as the Heartless to overcome darkness and restore peace to the realms. His signature look and airborne moves from the Kingdom Hearts games transition perfectly to the battlefields of Super Smash Bros Ultimate, offering an approachable fighter with a unique feel that helps Sora stand out on his own.
Inspired by his moves in Kingdom Hearts, Sora excels at fighting in the air when playing him in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. His jumps are high and his movements are light and soft. While he is easily launched by opponents, Sora’s powerful, combo-based attacks using his mighty Keyblade make him a formidable challenger.
