A fan-favourite villain from the FINAL FANTASY series Sephiroth, is set to join the Smash team on December 23rd.
Fighters Pass Vol. 2 – Challenger Pack 8 will be released for SUPER SMASH BROS. ULTIMATE and will contain Sephiroth as a playable character. Also included in the Challenger Pack 8 is a new stage based on the Northern Cave setting and nine music tracks, including “One-Winged Angel.”
Challenger Pack 8 is part of Fighters Pass Vol. 2, which can be purchased for AU$39.00 and also includes Min Min from the ARMS game, Steve & Alex from Minecraft, and three more yet-to-be-announced fighters. The Challenger Pack 8 can also be purchased separately for AU$7.80.
Sephiroth launches on Dec. 23 as part of Challenger Pack 8, but you also have the chance to unlock him early by taking part in a special boss battle. By pre-ordering the DLC, players can take part in the special Sephiroth Challenge which begins later today. Completing the challenge before the fighter’s official release, will unlock Sephiroth, the Northern Cave stage and the additional music tracks, so get fighting.
In the video above, Masahiro Sakurai even shows you through Sephiroth move set and gives us the first look at the new stage.
