Trailer Reveals Smash Ultimate’s Next DLC Fighter: Sephiroth

In a trailer at the Game Awards, Nintendo announced that the next DLC fighter added to the Super Smash Bros Ultimate roster will be the antagonist of Final Fantasy VII, Sephiroth.

In a three minute video during last night’s Game Awards, it was announced that Sephiroth, from Final Fantasy VII, would be the next DLC fighter to join the Super Smash Bros Ultimate roster.

The cinematic trailer continued the story of the World of Light, just as the characters were about to be defeated by the strange winged being Galeem, Sephiroth slices through it. But Sephiroth only proves to be a worse villain.

In an excellent moment of surprise, it looks like Sephiroth has impaled Mario on his sword, only to then reveal he’s being held up by the strap of his overalls.

The trailer ends with the only character that can seem to put up a fight, Cloud, clashing swords with Sephiroth.

Sephiroth is the third fighter announced in the Fighter’s Pass Vol. 2, after Min Min and Minecraft Steve, meaning there are only three characters left in the pass. The end of the trailer teased a December 2020 release date, but it didn’t specify a day. However, with December already almost half over, there can’t be much longer to wait.

Was Sephiroth on your Super Smash Bros Ultimate wishlist? Who else do you think will fill up the final three slots in the fighter’s pass? Leave a comment below.
