Many announcements were made during last week’s Nintendo Direct, including the next fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, with Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 arriving in March. As an apparent result, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 is currently out of stock on Amazon Japan, and it seems stock at Amazon in the U.S. is low right now as well. It’s another indication of how there’s no denying the reach that the Super Smash Bros. series has. For example, in my personal experience, Pit’s inclusion in Brawl was enough reason for me to go out and play Kid Icarus: Uprising. If you have yet to play Xenoblade Chronicles 2, you’re in for an epic JRPG adventure with a ton of fun moments.
Monolith Software’s Xenoblade Chronicles 2 launched for Nintendo Switch in December 2017. Since its release, the game has managed to sell over 2 million copies worldwide. The game is the bestselling entry in the series by about half a million, with Nintendo confirming this in late November via a financial report. Those Xenoblade Chronicles 2 sales are evidently only ticking ever higher if we use Amazon as an indication.
With two DLC characters remaining in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass 2, it will be interesting to see who makes the cut. So far we have had nine DLC fighters across both passes. Are you excited for Pyra and Mythra in Smash?
