The wait is over, Sora is finally here. At today’s, the series creator and director of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate showed off the last character coming to the game’s comprehensive roster of iconic video game characters.
Hype for the announcement had built up since the presentation was announced at Nintendo’s last Direct. The livestream itself peaked at over 500,000 views after days of viral fanonline, many of which proved correct. Sora was a popular guess, alongside Doomguy, who made it in via a Mii gunner costume.
Immediately preceding the announcement was a flood of Tweets emphasizing how grateful fans are for the past two years (and many sure to come) of Smash news, events, and play. With the hashtag #ThankYouSakurai, fans expressed their gratitude:
I'm incredibly grateful for Sakurai and everyone who created Super Smash Bros Ultimate. I can't wait to draw the new fighter with Kirby soon! 🙂
