Sakurai noted that the new fighter doesn't have great throws but is more of a "distance demon."
Their directional special moves all use different weapons -- Sword of the Creator, Areadbhar, Aymr and Failnaught -- and they team up with Sothis for their Final Smash: the intense-sounding Progenitor God Ruptured Heaven.
Along with Byleth, we've got Garreg Mach Monastery, the main location from Fire Emblem: Three Houses, as a new stage. It includes marketplace, reception, bridge and cathedral areas, with cameos from characters of the Blue Lion, Black Eagle and Golden Deer Houses.
Sakurai revealed that Fighters Pass Vol. 2 will include six more unrevealed characters and stages. It came out Wednesday, and it'll set you back $30. We'll see all the characters by the end of 2021, according to a note in the livestream. The director also said they've already been selected, so there's no point hounding him about your favorite on Twitter.
You're rolling the dice on the characters in this second season pass, but it also comes with an exclusive Mii Swordfighter costume: the cool Ancient Soldier gear from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Maybe that'll help with the wait for the sequel.
