Incredibly, Sephiroth is coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and you will not have to wait long to find out what his deal is! Masahiro Sakurai will be hosting a Sephiroth Super Smash Bros. Ultimate presentation on Thursday, Dec. 17 at 5 p.m. ET / 2 p.m. PT. You will learn his release date there as well! This character from Final Fantasy VII (and, more recently, Final Fantasy VII Remake) is an enormous change of pace from Steve from Minecraft, and I welcome the huge shift. Very few people were expecting Square Enix to deliver one of its most famous villains, but we’re here for it. (Sorry, Sora fans. You were this close.)
Stay tuned for next week when Masahiro Sakurai debuts Sephiroth gameplay in his Super Smash Bros. Ultimate presentation!
The one-winged angel, Sephiroth from the @FINALFANTASY series, joins #SmashBrosUltimate as a DLC fighter later this month! Tune in at 2pm PT on 12/17 for a presentation from director Masahiro Sakurai all about the DLC fighter, including the release date! pic.twitter.com/zRaZCSZkrn
