This pair is definitely polarizing
For me, it’s hard to believe Monolith Soft is even still around, but I’m glad it is.
Kicking off in 2002 with Xenosaga, the studio felt like a fever dream almost, but they expanded into several other franchises since then, and most notably, made a big name for themselves with Xenoblade Chronicles.
That game, which almost didn’t see life outside of Japan, blossomed into a full franchise; almost like Xenosaga 2.0. I don’t think they even knew how big it would get, hosting a sequel, an expansion, a remaster with new story content, and now, a Smash Ultimate appearance.
They’re celebrating that last milestone this week, as the studio dropped a new “thank you” video showcasing Pyra and Mythra, of Xenoblade Chronicles 2 fame. It’s a short little clip that has the duo accepting Smash invitations, with Pyra stating “I’m joining Super Smash Bros. today, I hope you support me,” and Mythra exclaiming “I’m definitely not gonna lose.”
She hopes we support her? Well, as an anime style character and a sword user, she’s going to need that hope!
Here’s a short movie from MONOLITHSOFT, the developer of Xenoblade 2, to mark the release of Pyra/Mythra as a new DLC fighter for Super #SmashBrosUltimate. It looks like they can’t wait to join the fight!
