Perhaps the most requested character in the history of Smash Bros, series creator Masahiro Sakurai confirmed it was a legal nightmare to get Sora to join due to being tied with Disney.
In fact, despite characters like Donald Duck and Goofy becoming an integral part of Kingdom Hearts' lore and Sora's journey, neither was anywhere to be seen during the presentation outside the fact of confirming Kingdom Hearts games coming to Nintendo Switch.
Sora in Smash Ultimate - Release date and time
Sora, which was leaked days before the reveal, will be available from 18th October, however, the specific time for his release has yet to be revealed.
