Sephiroth SSBU Super Smash Bros Ultimate

Nintendo announced a special Sakurai Presents video that will appear ahead of the Sephiroth SSBU debut. The YouTube presentation will appear on December 17, 2021, at 2pm PT/5pm ET/11pm CET. As with past videos, Masahiro Sakurai will detail the upcoming DLC character’s moveset, new stage, and new music. We’ll probably also see his Spirits. There might even be new Mii Fighter costumes at the end!

Nintendo announced Sephiroth as a SSBU DLC fighter at The Game Awards on December 10, 2021. The company quickly followed up with the following tweet.

Sephiroth will be the third DLC character in the second wave of DLC for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. In case you missed his reveal, check out the awesome video here.
