Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players rejoice because Mr. Sakurai has another presentation for you, this time focusing on Pyra and Mythra, the latest character coming to the title. The Mr. Sakurai Presents livestream will have Director Masahiro Sakurai giving his detailed insights on how this unique character functions and you can watch it all unfold right below!

Mr. Sakurai Presents “Pyra/Mythra”

The Mr. Sakurai Presents ‘Pyra/Mythra’ Super Smash Bros. Ultimate livestream is scheduled to begin on Thursday, March 4, at 6:00 a.m. PT / 9:00 a.m. ET. It should come as no surprise to Smash Bros. fans that this presentation will be short but packed full of information.

Viewers should anticipate the Mr. Sakurai Presents livestream to last roughly 35 minutes. Over this time, Mr. Sakurai will go in-depth into the Pyra/Mythra character, discussing moves, combos, and other useful insights players will no doubt want to understand. Mr. Sakurai will also reveal the fighter’s release date, which shouldn’t be too far off given the usual cadence of releases.

As our own TJ Denzer comments, the release of Pyra/Mythra follows Min-Min from ARMS, Steve and Alex from Minecraft, and even Sephiroth from Final Fantasy 7. With this new champion joining the fight, that leaves two slots left for the Fighters Pass Volume 2 DLC. There are so many possibilities of who or what these fighters might be and the internet is sure to go digging for any indication or hint of what lies ahead.

If you want to get a better understanding of how this Pyra/Mythra fighter works in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, make sure you stop by and tune into the Mr. Sakurai Presents livestream. The presentation is bound to be chockfull of useful details and valuable insights that will get you off on the right foot when this fighter enters the game. Take a moment to check out the Shacknews Super Smash Bros. Ultimate page after the presentation for more analysis and maybe even a character overview when Pyra/Mythra is released!

        I didn't beat it but I enjoyed the 80 or so hours I put into it. Pyra and the character designs in general were not something I liked though, but the gameplay and world/environment designs were great.

        I never played it or the expansion because I'm waiting for a new iteration of the Switch hardware that doesn't need to drop the res while keeping the framerate stable :(

        It's been hard to hold out, because I fucking loved the previous two games and I've already got multiple physical copies of the new ones :(

          I didn't like the expansion! They went Saints Row and gate the story progression behind helping X number of town people out everywhere. So the whole game is helping farmer Bob collect 25 stones so you then get to cross off 1 of 15 people helped to unlock the next bit of story.

                Well if we watch it at my house then we can play Fire Pro Wrestling World with all of the DLC afterwards

        I got to the part where Pyra and Mythra get their 3rd form and just got a bit sick of it all. I actually thought about picking it back up after this smash announcement, but I think any attempt at re-learning the combat and stuff at this point would be futile.

          I put it down a few times. You can relearn the combat pretty easy as it's all about..shit I've forgotten.

          Daze,smash,lift, then pound? That sounds right.

            and then also all the elements and stuff. And the goofy ass interactions of FINAL FORM with those.

          never got to play X because my WiiU didn't have enough storage and I didn't have any externals or anything to install it on... kinda wish that one woulda got remade on switch, I mean they remade every other wii U game why not this one

            X would require an insane amount of work to redo. The entire UI would have to be redone since text was already borderline too small for an HDTV. It would be unreadable on a 6" screen. They also really put the dual screen to work with maps and menus so that would have to be redone as well.

            Hopefully it happens but it would probably come down to how much they expect to recover based on the amount of work they or another studio would have to put in. Its is probably the least straightforward of any of the Wii U ports I can think of, barring impossible ones like Nintendo Land.
