During a stream that went into some further details, Nintendo broke down how the character and its two forms will work.
The Xenoblade Chronicles character will work just like previous characters with two forms have done. You'll be able to switch between Pyra and Mythra at will while on a stage.
Talking of stages, a new one has come to Ultimate alongside the characters. It is called Cloud Sea of Alrest and sees you and whoever else is involved battle it out on top of a Titan from the Xenoblade series.
Release Date & How to Get Pyra/Mythra
If you want to add them to your roster, you'll need to purchase the Fighters Pass 2, of which this is the fourth character addition, or separately for $5.99 / £5.39.
The purchase will include the new character and the new stage.
Both new features will come to Smash Bros. Ultimate today, 4 March, so keep an eye out on the eShop store for their arrival.
With the new pack downloaded and installed, you'll be able to jump into fights with Pyra/Mythra whenever you'd want.
