Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Spirits Events

For Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Nintendo 3DS, Masahiro Sakurai himself shared new screenshots and details via Miiverse. We actually got a fair amount of brand new details about the games, including some that were not even mentioned in the various presentations (Nintendo Direct, E3, etc.). And for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, we got daily updates on the official Super Smash Bros. account, in Japan.

The game is now available worldwide, and so the Twitter updates are changing. Nintendo is now using them to notify players about upcoming events for the game. Therefore, this post is evolving, and is now about those very events.

In this post, you will find all there is to know about the upcoming Events and Content Updates for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate!

December 6th

Today’s fighter is Mewtwo, a Legendary Pokémon with rather technical moves. Skilled players can use Confusion or Disable as diversion, before landing a well placed Shadow Ball. It can transform into Mega Mewtwo Y when using its Final Smash, which allows it to fire a projectile that freezes and launches your opponents!

December 5th

This week’s music track is “How to Play”, an original track from Super Smash Bros. Melee. The arrangement was done by Motoi Sakuraba!

And this week’s stage is Midgar, from Final Fantasy VII. You can grab the Summon Materia in order to summon powerful beings. Said summons can knock fighters out, and whoever summoned them will get the point(s) if that happens, so make sure to grab any Summon Materia you come across… because you can be sure your opponents will try to do the same!

December 4th

Today’s item is another Assist Trophy: Tiki. As you already know if you’re a fan of the Fire Emblem series, Tiki is a Manakete, which means she can transform into a fire-breathing dragon using a Dragonstone. And believe it or not, she’s actually over 1 000 years old!

And today’s fighter is Roy, who requires you to get up close and personal if you want to deal lots of damage. The closer you get to the base of his blade, the more powerful his attacks get. When triggering his Final Smash, his sword bursts into flame and it sends flying anyone caught in the blast.

December 3rd

Today’s fighter is the one and only Bayonetta, a stylish Umbra Witch who holds guns in her hands… and on her legs. Her fighting style is known as Bullet Arts, and it’s pretty deadly! Using Witch Time, she can slow down her opponents for a few moments.
