Smash Bros Sora Mod Does What Nintendon’t

Smash Bros Sora Mod

A prominent modder in the fighting game community, Mastaklo, has created a Smash Bros Sora mod. The modification uses Shulk’s moveset to add Sora as an Echo Fighter of sorts to Super Smash Bros Ultimate. Mastaklo’s newest creation is currently only available for Patreon members, but they will make it public on February 19, 2021.

The latest mod may feel like it puts a label on Super Smash Bros Ultimate that says “Featuring Sora from the Kingdom Hearts series.” The creator went all out to refine the fighter’s look and sound. The Smash Bros Sora mod is based on his Kingdom Hearts 3 appearance, complete with voice clips used from the games. Additionally, Sora’s keyblades even change their cosmetic look to recognizable weapons from the series. Thanks to the artist’s efforts, fans can now recreate the secret boss fight from Kingdom Hearts in Smash if they have the right DLC.

Check out the images and gameplay video below of Sora in action.

Mastaklo is a 2D/3D artist and prominent modder in the community. Primarily focusing on fighting games, their website hosts all of their efforts. For Super Smash Bros Ultimate, they have made mods for Goku, Shadow the Hedgehog, Knuckles, and even Spider-Man‘s Venom. Outside of Smash Bros, they have creations for Dragon Ball games and Jump Force. The site and Patreon welcome fans to commission a mod.

Mastaklo’s Smash Bros Sora mod will go public on February 19, 2021. Those interested should remember that these are not officially supported by Nintendo—you don’t want your Switch to get Norted.
