Smash Bros Ultimate patch v13.0.0: Sora goes live, Zelda, Little Mac buffs, and more

The final and most requested Smash Ultimate DLC is finally live alongside buffs for several low tier characters.
It's finally here, over two weeks since being announced, Sora from Kingdom Hearts, the most requested character in Smash history, is finally in the game.

Series creator Masahiro Sakurai had to pull nothing short of a miracle to make it happen, as they had to secure the rights from both Square Enix and Disney, proving to be a hard task that took over five years to finally be fulfilled. 

Sakurai himself confirmed this would be the last DLC for Smash Ultimate, in what many speculate is the last title in the franchise under his guidance, proving a fitting final character to signify the end of an era for Smash fans.

Version 13.00 brings more than just Sora, with plenty of buffs to low tier characters such as Zelda, Little Mac, and even Jigglypuff, among others.
