Sora is expected to be available in Smash as part of the 13.0 update which arrives on Monday, 18 October. While no time for the update to be live has been officially confirmed, it's typically done at 21:00 EST / 18:00 PST.

Update 13.0 Content

Sora isn't the only thing arriving in Smash with Update 13.0, we've got a stage, music, spirits and even some Mii fighter costumes! Sora will be available for around £/$6 if purchased separately or is part of the Fighter Pass Vol. 2.


The stage that comes along with him is Rising Falls which is a fairly straightforward arena with the Hollow Bastion setting. The arena's imagery will change as matches play out but the layout will stay the same.

Ten tracks from the Kingdom Hearts franchise are being added to the game with an 11th track available if you have save data for Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory on your Switch console. Eight new spirits are being added including the likes of Terra, Riku, Xion and Axel.

Finally, there are the Mii Fighter costumes. Octoling (wig), Judd (hat) and Doom Slayer (gunner) are being added for a super low cost (less than £/$1) like all previous additions.
