As previously revealed, Mythra and Pyra will feature a unique Final Smash in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Depending on whomever is on the field, Mythra or Pyra will unleash her full potential. These animations and moves are entirely unique to the character. This can also be said for their movesets, as both characters will play somewhat different. This is similar in the vein of Princess Zelda and Sheik before they became two different fighters. However, the attacks for Mythra and Pyra will be roughly the same, with some differences. Their special attacks are the primary difference between the pair, along with attacks speed and damage. Both also react differently to Rex when he appears alongside them.
Super Smash Bros Ultimate is available for the Nintendo Switch. The release date for the Mythra and Pyra DLC in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is March 4, 2021. Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is immediately available for the Nintendo Switch.
