Fans of Super Smash Bros. all have their own list of characters that they wish could make it into the renowned fighting series, and now that Cloud and Mega Man have been added to the roster, one of the most requested gaming heroes is Sora from the Kingdom Hearts franchise. While there’s no telling if Square Enix’s Keyblade-wielding warrior will ever make it into the series proper, fans have now created a mod that accomplishes that goal, at least appearance-wise.
The mod creates a new skin for Shulk that makes him look like Sora, complete with his signature Keyblade and his outfit from Kingdom Hearts II. The moveset is still decidedly Shulk and the Monado’s, but I’m certainly not disappointed to see the Keyblade shooting out blades of light with each Smash attack. You can check it all out in the video above, and you can head here if you’d like to download and try this mod out for yourself!
What do you think of this mod? Could Sora ever see inclusion in Smash as an official newcomer, or do you think this is as close as we’ll ever get? What other characters would you like to see added to the franchise via mods? Let us know in the comments!
