Sephiroth’s coming to Smash Ultimate on December 22nd, unlock him early with the Sephiroth Challenge mode

The Sephiroth Super Smash Bros. Ultimate presentation has come to an end. Mii costumes of Geno, Tifa, Barret, and Aerith had been confirmed, along with an in-depth look at Sephiroth’s move set. You will also be able to get you Mii a Chocobo Hat. At the end of the presentation, it was confirmed that Sephiroth is releasing on December 22nd.

However, you don’t have to wait until then to play as him. A limited-time boss mode is going to be available for the next 5 days, starting later today. It is called Sephiroth Challenge. You’ll be able to face Sephiroth in 3 different difficulties: Easy, Normal, and Very Hard. If you manage to defeat him, you’ll be able to play as Sephiroth early and unlock his new stage, Northern Cave. Nintendo‘s official tweet of the release date is down below.


  1. That Very Hard battle was, well, actually very hard! This was fun and I’m hyped to play as him :D

  2. I love his play style he’s kinda similar to byleth but alot more creative, but man him being lighter kinda throws me off I find it even funnier that he can be ko easily like villager and other light weight characters, than again Rosalina exist.

  3. He’s pretty cool. But his moveset is a bit plain imo. Although his side special is pretty neat. I love his stage too. Excited to see what the final 3 characters are. 🤔 I do find it just a little funny that Geno is a mii costume again. To be honest, I never thought he’d be playable. I don’t think he ever will be.

    1. Yeah thats kinda why I compare him to byleth, and yeah square is kinda stingy with their characters so I don’t really see how geno could get in.

  4. This character like the new ones being catered to that are outside properties not of nintendo look OP af.

    I wish the nintendo characters got new edits on their moves. Giving mario more additional moves to f l.u.d.d.

    1. What are you talking about? Nintendo charas like Pikachu, Mario or Peach are among top/high tier, while most DLC characters like Hero dont even come close.

      1. Maybe they just get more creative and have more variety than the nintendo characters.

        Ex. Min min just terrible

      2. Hero is definitely top tier or in the second top tier. But, yeah you are right that Mario, Pikachu, Lucian, and Young Link are some of the main OPs.

  5. I was able to win the very hard fight with Wii Fit Trainer. Soccer ball cheese helped quite a bit 😅

  6. felt good to finally beat this guy on the 7th try. That fucking range and damage output plus him having 50 more hp.
