Nintendo’s Super Smash Bros. franchise contains video game characters from a variety of games and publishers. Now, we imagine that Nintendo probably has a ton of ideas as to what kind of characters they want in the game, and that they might not necessarily be successful with all their requests.
One of those unsuccessful requests is apparently Sora from Kingdom Hearts. This is according to a recent episode on the Kinda Funny Gamescast where former Game Informer editor, Imran Khan, claimed that Nintendo had approached Disney and asked if they could have Sora in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
Since the character isn’t in the game, it’s safe to assume that any negotiations both companies had fell through. According to Khan, it seems that it was Disney Japan specifically that prevented Sora from being part of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game. None of this can be confirmed, of course, so take it with a grain of salt.
However, given the breadth of fighters on the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster, we wouldn’t have been surprised if Nintendo was interested in Kingdom Hearts being part of the lineup. What do you think? Do you think that Sora would have been a great addition to the game had they been successful?
