For those eagerly awaiting the next fighter reveal for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, similar-style brawler Rivals of Aether now has new content available that may whet your appetite in the meantime.

The PC version of the game added Steam Workshop support back in 2019, and the community has produced a ton of excellent playable fighters since then. The development team has now curated the very best fan creations and is officially introducing four original characters into the Nintendo Switch and Steam versions of the game via the Workshop Character Pack.

The new fighters include Mollo, the Smoldering Rage; Hodan, the Hot Springs Sage; Pomme, the Superstar Songstress; and Olympia, the Amethyst Fist. Their designs are fantastically unique and they all seem right at home among the rest of the official cast.

 

 

If you’re new to Rivals of Aether, we gave the game a glowing review last year, praising it as “a more competitive alternative to Super Smash Bros.” and stating that fans of Melee’s fast-paced fighting in particular “should absolutely check the game out.”
