Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

I’d be lying if I said this wasn’t the part I was most excited for. Every time a new character is due to be announced my friends and I go on a whirlwind of speculation. My pipe dream character is Professor Layton, formerly Banjo & Kazooie, so I’ve felt pretty happy about the DLC fighters so far.

Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles join the Smash Bros. roster! As one fighter, you can swap between the two of them at will on the battlefield.
