Smash Bros. Ultimate "Mr. Sakurai Presents: Pyra/Mythra" presentation airing March. 4th, 2021

Shulk won't be the only Xenoblade character in Smash for much longer!

Want to learn more about Pyra/Mythra's appearance in Smash Bros. Ultimate? March 4th, 2021 brings us a video presentation from Mr. Sakurai himself, and he'll be running through everything the duo Xenoblade Chronicles 2 characters have to offer at 6AM PT / 9AM ET. The live-stream will be roughly 35 minutes long, and Nintendo has assured that there will be no future fighter announcements. We are bound to get our next round of Mii costumes though, so make sure to stay tuned.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 sells out on Amazon Japan following Pyra/Mythra's reveal for Smash Bros. Ultimate

Japan is really feeling it!

Smash Bros. Ultimate isn't just a fighting game for Nintendo. It's a great marketing tool for other franchises. Smash's roster helps spread the word on games players might not otherwise know about. We've seen it boost the sales of related games before, and it appears to be happening once again.

During last week's Nintendo Direct, Pyra/Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 were revealed for Smash Bros. Ultimate. A few days later, Amazon Japan has completely sold out of Xenoblade Chronicles 2. There's no doubt the two are related, and you can bet Nintendo is happy about the results. Let's hope some new stock hits Amazon Japan soon!
