For nearly six years, Nintendo fans have been voting for characters they would like to see added as a Super Smash fighter, and Disney fans will be thrilled to learn that Sora from Kingdom Hearts has made the cut. Masahiro Sakurai, the video game creator behind Kingdom Hearts shared the news in Nintendo’s virtual press conference this morning, and we cannot wait to play as Sora!

During the press conference, Sakurai commented on the long wait to announce the details of Sora’s addition to Super Smash Bros. stating that the character required lots of increased coordination and his outfits and design will be among the most elaborate for any character in the franchise. Additionally, Kingdom Hearts is not owned by Nintendo, but by Disney and Square Enix, so an agreement of course needed to be reached between the company’s to include Sora in Super Smash Bros.

Once included in the game, Sora will be receiving multiple new outfits. One such design by Timeless River will enhance the character’s look with classic black and white graphics. On top of his newly enhanced wardrobe, Sora’s character will come with new moves like a three-hit combo that are sure to give players using the character an edge against the competition if their skills match up.
