Sora's arrival also heralds a slew of major balance updates for the rest of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster, so let's take a look at what those entail.

Sora, available as part of Fighters Pass Vol. 2, will be accompanied by an all-new stage. It's Hollow Bastion, as seen in the original Kingdom Hearts. In addition to that, look for new Mii Fighter outfits. There aren't as many as in the past, but there is one noteworthy one in the form of the main protagonist of Doom. Call him Doom Guy, Doom Slayer, or whatever you want, id Software's FPS pioneer has made it into Smash Bros. in at least one form and can now fight alongside Animal Crossing's Isabelle, as they were always meant to.

Best of luck to all Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players with today's 13.0.0 update. Shacknews would like to join the chorus in saluting the development team for this incredible collection of characters. And we would like to remind everyone, once more, that we will never see anything like this again.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

        Psyched to mess around with Sora when I get home later. Joker, Pikachu, Aegis, Lucina, ZSS, and Captain Falcon will probably still be my favorites. Sora just looks SO floaty, could never get into other floaties. Willing to try a floaty with a sword tho, we'll see!

          I'm ready to get owned on this but I really think people overreacted to how "broken" he seemed at the reveal. I've been wrong before but I think he'll be perfectly mid
