A week ago, Nintendo hosted a new live show in which one of the main announcements was the next DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. As it turns out, the next DLC character is actually fighters in one: Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade 2 records. While the promo gave us a glimpse of what Pyra and Mythra could do on the battlefield, it left us in the dark regarding their actual set of moves and abilities.
All that will change next week, like climax Director Masahiro Sakurai will give a deep look into the characters. Sakurai did this for everyone climax The DLC character has been released so far, so it was only a matter of time before Nintendo confirmed this as well. Sakurai’s deep dive will happen at Pyra / Mythra on March 4 – 8 days of the day – 6 a.m. PDT / 9 a.m. EST.
So, we’ll definitely wake up early to see what Pyra and Mythra can do. In a follow-up tweet, Nintendo said the Sakurai show will last for about 35 minutes and won’t reveal the next DLC fighter, so don’t go over there and expect to see anything but Pyra and Mythra in action.
This is a necessary warning too, as Sakurai has revealed new fighters in DLC at the end of this deep dive before. While climax Fans might be disappointed that we won’t reveal a new DLC fighter soon, it’s safe to assume that things in Sakurai’s studio are moving slower than usual thanks to the pandemic.
Anyway, if you are the one climax Player, be sure to set it next week to see what Pyra and Mythra bring to the table. Sakurai’s deep dive will be streamed on the official Nintendo YouTube channel, and you can watch it when the time comes via the video above.
