Although Sora, the legendary Keyblade-wielding hero of Kingdom Hearts fame, may be the 82nd and final fighter coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the battle is only beginning for Smash fans. Sora is best known for his adventures alongside Goofy and Donald Duck as they searched for King Mickey throughout the series, and his combo attacks and acrobatic fighting style translate well to the fast-paced world of Smash Bros. Some of Sora’s moves include speedy Sonic Blade dashes to quickly close the distance between opponents; a trio of powerful fire-, ice- and lightning-based magic; and Aerial Sweep, a massive vertical jump that saves Sora from huge falls.
Sora may not become available to battle King K. Rool, Banjo and Kazooie, and Pikachu until Oct. 18, but there are many exciting goodies available now that longtime Sora fans and Kingdom Hearts newcomers can check out.
While you are waiting for Sora to make his Smash Bros. debut, consider expanding your roster with the second Fighters Pass. Not only will you get Sora, the beautiful Hollow Bastion stage and a Kingdom Hearts music pack, but this bundle also includes Min Min, Minecraft’s Steve & Alex, Sephiroth, Pyra and Mythra, and Kazuya as playable fighters for a more affordable price than buying each character separately. Sold by Amazon.
