Pyra and Mythra join Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as the game reaches Ver. 11.0.0. Here’s what the latest update includes.

Following last month’s Nintendo Direct reveal and yesterday’s presentation by Masahiro Sakurai, the latest DLC fighter has been added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on Nintendo Switch.

Effectively two fighters in one, fan-favourite Pyra/Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is the fourth of six character packs featured in the game’s Fighters Pass Vol. 2.

Previous DLC fighters include Final Fantasy VII‘s Sephiroth, Min Min from Arms, Steve and Alex from Minecraft, and Dragon Quest‘s Hero.

Pyra and Mythra arrive alongside the game’s Ver. 11.0.0. update, which also adds new Mii Fighter costumes, amiibo support for The Toad Power-Up Band, and a host of fighter tweaks.

Here’s the full list of game updates. You can also watch Masahiro Sakurai’s presentation in full at the bottom of the page.
