While some have Sephiroth early due to completing the character-specific challenge on Hard Mode, the rest of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players can now enjoy the one-winged angel as well. The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 10.1 update is now live, bringing with it the lastest fighter as well as a slew of other in-game adjustments as well. 

Sephiroth isn’t the only Final Fantasy element dropping into the game, quite a few inspired outfits are also available including Tifa and Aerith. Geno from Super Mario RPG is also available (as an outfit) thanks to the latest patch. 

New spirits, summons, and more are now available; check out the full patch notes below:
