Final Fantasy's Sephiroth is the next DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Final Fantasy VII antagonist Sephiroth was announced as the next DLC fighter for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate at The Game Awards 2020.
Final Fantasy's Sephiroth is the next DLC character confirmed for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. 

Announced during The Game Awards 2020, this is the third DLC character from Fighters Pass 2 following Minecraft’s Steve and Min Min from ARMS. 

If you're unfamiliar, Sephiroth is the main antagonist in Final Fantasy VII - with the trailer highlighting his history with Cloud. 

The character was also given a release window of December 2020, with creator Masahiro Sakurai set to debut the character's moveset on 17th December at 2pm PST/10pm GMT.

This is also the second time a DLC character for Smash Ultimate has been unveiled at The Game Awards, after Persona 5’s Joker was given a surprise reveal back in 2018. 

Three more DLC characters are set to be released before the end of next year. 

This announcement also follows criticism against Nintendo and their trigger-happy cease and desist orders, with the company shutting down a charity fundraiser and Melee tournaments over legal issues.
