Smash Bros. Ultimate Is Adding FF7 And Geno Mii Fighter Costumes
Nintendo showcased a handful of new Mii Fighter costumes that are coming soon to the Switch fighting game.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai shared more details on the game's next DLC character, Final Fantasy VII's Sephiroth, during Thursday's video presentation, but that wasn't all he discussed. Sakurai kicked off the broadcast by revealing an assortment of new Mii Fighter costumes that are coming to the game very soon.
Five more costumes are being added to Smash Bros. Ultimate today, December 22, all of which are based on Square Enix characters. Fittingly to coincide with Sephiroth, three of the costumes are inspired by Final Fantasy VII characters: Barret (Gunner), Tifa (Brawler), and Aerith (Swordfighter). The remaining two include a Chocobo Hat and a Gunner costume based on Geno from Super Mario RPG. Each costume will cost 75 cents.
As for Sephiroth, the new fighter also officially joins the roster today, but you're able to unlock him early if you can beat him during a limited-time event. He'll arrive alongside a new stage, music tracks, and Spirits. You can get the One-Winged Angel as part of the game's $30 Fighters Pass Vol. 2 or pick his character pack up individually for $6.
Sephiroth is the third new fighter from Smash Bros. Ultimate's second wave of DLC, following Min Min from Arms and Steve/Alex from Minecraft. Three more DLC fighters are still on the way, although Nintendo hasn't yet shared any details about who those will be or when they'll release.
In other Smash Bros. news, Nintendo is giving away another free item pack for the game. For a limited time, Switch Online subscribers can grab the Spirit Board Challenge Pack 7. This pack comes with an assortment of items aimed at making it easier to challenge tough Spirits in the game's Spirit Board mode. Like other Smash Ultimate freebies, however, you can only claim the item pack if you have a paid Switch Online subscription.
