It turns out that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate hasn’t abandoned new events entirely, as Nintendo has just announced that the game will be celebrating the 35th anniversary of Street Fighter. Fans will have an opportunity to pick up a new spirit featuring Evil Ryu. Other prior Street Fighter spirits will also be appearing.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate largely ended its support following the release of Sora as its final DLC character in October. A month later, Nintendo announced that new in-game events were coming to an end. Previous events have been recycled on a weekly basis, so today’s news about the Street Fighter celebration and Evil Ryu spirit in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate comes as a surprise. It’s unclear whether this is a one-time thing or if we could continue to see new spirits from time to time.
