Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Spirits Events, Tourney 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! For all the past announcements (before the start of re-runs), check out this page instead! For the first year of re-runs, check out this page!
