Everything announced in the final Mr. Sakurai Presents

First, Mii Fighter costumes made an appearance. The Mii Costumes this time around will be themed around Octolings from the Splatoon series. The featured costume pieces were an Octoling wig and Judd wig. A full costume resembling Doomguy from the DOOM series will be available with the Splatoon wigs for $0.75 each.

Finally, the moment fans were waiting for — the final DLC character. In an unexpected twist, Sora from the Kingdom Hearts series makes his debut in the Super Smash Bros. series.

Sakurai describes the character’s inclusion as a “huge undertaking”, but after the many requests from the Smash Bros. ballot, they couldn’t resist. His character will have both English and Japanese voice options, and is lighter than even Isabelle and Link in weight. As for alternate costumes, Sora’s look will change to ones based on his clothing in Kingdom Hearts I, II, III and Dream Drop Distance.
