  • Pyra and Mythra are the third character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Season Two.
  • There is still one last fighter left in the Fighters Pass.

Nintendo has announced the newest character to join Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and it's none other than Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade 2. Pyra and Mythra will both release in March 2021, but Nintendo promises that fans will get a closer look as we get closer to the release date, as they have done with previous characters.

Check out the video here:

Pyra has many fire-based attacks, just like she did in Xenoblade 2. Pyra can also transform into Mythra, which gives her a brand new move set. There will also be a new stage based on Xenoblade 2.

Pyra and Mythra count as one character in the Super Smash Bros Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2. She will join Final Fantasy's Sephiroth, Minecraft's Steve and Alex, and Min Min from ARMS. There are still two characters left to be revealed.

You can buy Fighter Pass Vol. 2 now for $29.99, or buy each character individually for $5.99. You can also buy the first fighter pack on the eShop for $24.99. That pack includes Joker from Persona 5, Banjo & Kazooie, Multiple heroes from Dragon Quest, Terry Bogard from King of Fighters, and Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses.
