But It’s the new fighter, or should we say “fighters”, that headline the new pack made available with the Super Smash Bros. UltimatePass Vol. 2. Pyra/Mythra, the dual personality blade used in the Xenoblade Chronicles 2, is entering the arena in both forms. During a half hour video breakdown about the fighting duo, we learn Pyra is shown to specialize in power while Mythra’s is speed. Used correctly, Pyra/Mythra can become a very dangerous opponent.
However, the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 references don’t stop there as familiar setting from the game also makes an appearance. Cloud Sea of Alrest is the newest stage in Super Smash Bros. Ultimateand not only features familiar sites from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 but also many lovable characters. Up to 19 songs from the game will also be made available in Challenger Pack 9.
