Sephiroth will join Super Smash Bros. Ultimate next week and experts will be able to unlock him from today.
Nintendo has issued tonight a new Smash Direct dedicated to Sephiroth, the next character to join the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fighter squad, as revealed days ago at The Game Awards 2020 gala.
Thanks to this new issue we have been able to verify how will it unfold on the battlefield the great villain of Final Fantasy VII and one of the most popular video games. Of course, here you will not go around with little girls and will unleash your full potential, because with his sword Masamune he will become a most devastating character.
The majority of attacks will be executed with this sword that has quite a huge scope, which allows you to reach your opponents from afar with little tousled hair. Nevertheless, due to its height This will make it difficult to get it right at times. Also, this will cause him to be easily hit and light when thrown off stage.
Regarding his special abilities, one of them will be a shot called Glare, which you can load to become Megafulgor Y Gigafulgor, becoming one of the most powerful attacks in the entire game for the amount of life it will take away. You can also run the side special Spectral Glare so that it generates some spheres of fire around the rival that will cause damage.
Your special up will be court, similar to Fox’s fire attack by being able to launch diagonally, although it has a version called Octacorte if it is executed in the air in order to deliver eight cuts. For its part, the special down will be about Spark and it will generate a barrier of crystals that serves to counterattack, becoming more powerful the stronger the opposing attack.
The Final Smash of Sephiroth will be familiar to those who have played the game, because it will be Supernova. In addition to changing his appearance, he will summon a Meteorite that will destroy everything and cause altered states to the opponents, whether it is putting them to sleep or inverting their controls, for example.
Among other details, Sephiroth will only have his voice in japanese and when he receives too much damage or is in a dangerous situation he will adopt his angel shape with one wing, which will increase your speed and give you an additional jump. In turn, with two of his eight skins he will fight naked from the waist up.
The stage that will accompany Sephiroth will be the North Cave, a place that again those who have completed Final Fantasy VII will know well enough. It will be one of the most special maps of all because it will tell a backstory when it comes to a scene in continuous movement and in which some of the most iconic moments of this Final Fantasy will be recreated.
Finally, the pack will be accompanied by nine new themes, of which four will be remixes. For all this you will have to wait until December 23th to acquire this new DLC for 5.99 euros if you buy it separately and do not have the second season pass of the game.
However, those who do have the season pass will be able to access from tonight to Sephiroth Challenge, a new temporary game mode in which you will fight Sephiroth in a duel to the death on Very Hard difficulty. If you defeat him, you can enjoy in advance all the content of this new pack before its official launch, but it will certainly be a challenge only suitable for experts.
