Sora from the Kingdom Hearts series is the final DLC character for Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
During today's Final Mr. Sakurai Presents event, series creator Masahiro Sakurai revealed that the main character from the popular series by Square Enix is the final DLC character for the game. Unsurprisingly, the character was the most voted character for the ballot launched a few years ago for Super Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS. Sora will join the character roster later this month, on October 18th.

While Sora will be relatively straightforward to play in Super Smash Bros Ultimate, he will have some distinct traits. Some of his attacks can be extended into three-hit combos and are generally slow, but he will be a light character, meaning that he will be easier to launch than most of the cast. Additionally, Sora's will feature different costumes inspired by Kingdom Hearts III, III, and 3D Drop Distance.

Sora will not be the only character to make his debut in Super Smash Bros Ultimate this month. It has been confirmed that DOOM's Doom Slayer will join the roster as a Mii Fighter on October 18th, alongside the Splatoon Octoling and Judd.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate is now available on Nintendo Switch worldwide. Sora launches on October 18th.
