Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Update 10.1.0 Is Now Live – Here’s What Sephiroth Brings to The Fight

The One-Winged Angel has arrived. And with him a new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Update. But what does version 10.1.0 include?

Final Fantasy 7 and Super Smash Bros fans can rejoice now that gaming’s biggest but most celebrated villain has made his presence known. Sephiroth is Super Smash Bro’s Ultimate’s latest fighter

If Sephiroth ruined your childhood by killing off your favourite flower seller, then knows your chance to make him pay. And yes – he does do that move. You know the one.

But along with the long sword wielding scumbag, Nintendo has released a new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate update to facilitate his arrival.

We’ve provided the patch notes in full – and they contain a lot of Final Fantasy 7 references.

Here’s What the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Update Provides:

Further Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Update Additions:
