The next Super Smash Bros. Ultimate characters are...

Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

The latest characters to join the bulging Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster have been announced during tonight's Nintendo Direct. They are... Pyra and Mythra, from Xenoblade Chronicles 2.

You can swap between both characters mid-battle when they arrive in March.

Sorry Birdo, we're still rooting for you.
