これを見れば全てがわかる!新情報がもり盛りだくさん!「Nintendo Direct 2021.2.18」発表内容まとめ!

Homura/Hikari" will join "Smash Bros.

The movie of their entry into the game is a 4 minutes and 30 seconds long movie!
The movie starts with the main character Rex searching for Homura, who suddenly disappeared.
Rex finally finds Homura. Why is Homura here...?

Homura: "I was invited to the big fight! "

Rex can't help but think, " I'm supposed to be in the game! " and his true feelings.
I'm sorry Rex, but it's " Homura/Hikari " that looks good....

Switching between Homura and Hikari to fight!

Homura and Hikari
Moderate exposure?

While "Xenoblade 2" is rated CERO: C (for ages 15 and up ), "Smash Bros. SP" is rated CERO: A (for all ages ).
I think "Homura/Hikari" in "Smash Bros SP" is a little less exposed...

Homura/Hikari" can be switched freely during battle!
In the entry movie, Homura is seen performing a

  • Flare Smash
  • Flame Nova
  • Prominence Revolt
  • Blaze End


  • Lightning Buster
  • Photon Edge
  • Panishment Ray
  • Rainbow Dust

... and other techniques.
Furthermore, there was a scene where Rex appeared as a causal predictor who can see the future and the last trump card.
Good for Rex!

Homura's last trump card "Burning Sword".

The new stage features "Jicchan"!

The new stage is Seiryu!

The Giant God Beast Seiryu, whom Rex affectionately calls "Jicchan," also appears in a new stage!
Familiar characters such as Nia, Byakko, Tora, and Hana will also appear in the background!

This brings the total number of fighters in "Smash Bros SP" to 84!
In the group illustration, Rex is firmly positioned next to Shulk.
I wonder if Rex will ever be in this lineup...
