(Rumor) Nintendo wanted Sora in Smash Bros. Ulimate , Disney shut it down
Smash fans for ages have requested so many different characters to join an already packed roster, but now news has circulated that one major favorite almost joined the fight. That’s right according to rumors Sora from Kingdom Hearts was requested by Nintendo themselves to be included in Smash but Disney completely shut it down. Sora has been widely requested by so many players to be included in the game and now we finally know why he wasn’t originally and also why he hasn’t been a DLC. Disney simply doesn’t want him in the game. For those who are waiting to hear if he’s par of Fighter Pass 2 this pretty much confirms it will never happen.
The information further clarifying why Sora is not in the game was made during an episode of Kinda Funny Gamecast. A former Game Informer Editor named Imran Khan made some remarks about Sora in Super Smash Bros. According to him, Nintendo did speak to Disney about it at one point. He also stated that Disney Japan specifically is the ones preventing Sora from becoming a fighter in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This is obviously not news any fan Kingdom Hearts and Smash fan wants to hear, but it provides clarity. So as much as we may want him to join the fight, Disney just isn’t going to let it happen.
