Nintendo has added Xenoblade‘s Pyra and Mythra to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate‘s expansive roster. The new character additions arrive just three months after Nintendo introduced Sephiroth to the title.

Mr. Sakurai, Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director, recently presented the characters in depth. The two characters will be playable as a single unit, a duo officially billed as “Pyra/Mythra.” The characters work in tandem, where you can switch between the two at any given time, each with its own distinctive moves. Pyra deals greater damage, while Mythra has moves that make it easier to launch your foes off the battle stage. Accompanying Pyra/Mythra is a new stage inspired by Xenoblade Chronicles 2, set on the back of Azurda, a flying dragon.

In case you missed it, a seven-inch OLED screen Nintendo Switch with 4K output will be releasing later this year.
