Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s new fighter is Final Fantasy’s Sephiroth

Following a tease put out earlier today on Twitter by Nintendo of America, Final Fantasy’s Sephiroth has now been announced as the latest DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This very welcome news arrived during The Game Awards 2020.

Final Fantasy 7 antagonist Sephiroth will be the third of six new characters added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as part of its Fighters Pass Volume 2 DLC, which is priced at a rather hefty $29.99/£26.99. You can grab the full pass right now from over on the Nintendo eShop, assuming you have the change to spare.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s DLC fighters have so far included Mario enemy Piranha Plant, Persona 5’s Joker, Dragon Quest’s Hero, Banjo & Kazooie, Terry Bogard from The King of Fighters, Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Min Min from ARMS, and – course – the legend that is Minecraft Steve.
