Sora is arriving in Super Smash Bros Ultimate this week. The Kingdom Hearts character – who SSBU fans have long been hoping would arrive in the Nintendo Switch brawler – is finally getting added to the roster soon. Sora will be the last Super Smash Bros Ultimate DLC character, and will be added as part of Fighters Pass 2 – or as the standalone Challenger Pack 11 download.
If you can’t wait for the Sora Smash Bros DLC release, then the good news is you don’t have too much longer to wait.
Smash Bros fans based in the UK and Europe will see the Sora DLC launch on Tuesday October 19, while SSBU gamers will see the Kingdom Hearts character arrive on Monday October 18.
The release dates for the Sora Smash Bros DLC have been confirmed, but the exact launch times haven’t.
However, based on past releases, here is the expected release time for the Smash Smash Bros content…
• Sora Smash Bros DLC release date and time (US) – Monday October 18 at 6pm pacific, 9pm eastern

The Sora Smash Bros DLC will also add a new stage – Hollow Bastion – as well as nine iconic songs from the beloved Square Enix and Disney mash-up series.
Sora is being added to Smash Bros as part of update 13.0.0, with this new patch also bringing with it some fresh Mii fighters.
Octoling and Judd from Splatoon are being added to Smash Bros as Mii fighters as is Doom Slayer from Doom.
Ahead of the release of the next Smash Bros update fans are being advised to back-up any replays.
In the run-up to the 13.0.0 release the Nintendo Versus Twitter account posted: “Ver. 13.0.0 of Super #SmashBrosUltimate arrives on 10/18! Your replay data from previous versions may be incompatible. Convert your replays by going to Vault -> Replays -> Replay Data -> Convert to Video, before updating.”
Patch notes are yet to be released for the upcoming update but the download is likely to bring with it gameplay balance tweaks and potentially some bug fixes.
After update 13.0.0 is launched there won’t be any further DLC content for Super Smash Bros Ultimate.
So far 11 DLC characters have been added to the hit Nintendo Switch game, which were included in Fighters Pass 1 and 2.
The first season of Smash Bros DLC content added Persona 5’s Joker, Dragon Quest’s Hero, Banjo & Kazooie, SNK icon Terry Bogard and Byleth from Fire Emblem.
