Smash Bros Ultimate win rates

In his latest video on YouTube, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai provided insight into the game’s win rates.

Many fans have certain opinions about which characters are best to play as. You can probably find plenty of tier lists online with some fighters coming out more favorably. However, win rates in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate are probably closer than you’d think.

Nintendo has announced another Spirit Board event for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which will feature content from Princess Peach: Showtime and Super Mario Bros. Wonder.

You can check out the spirits that are planned via the graphic above. Spirits are coming for Swordfighter Peach, Elephant Mario, and more. Note that when you defeat one of them, you’ll earn more gold than usual.

Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo Tag Team Tourney

There’s still a little bit of new stuff happening in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, and the previously-announced amiibo Tag Team Tourney is now beginning this week.

Players will be able to summon an FP from its amiibo and team up with it during the time-limited Team Battle tourney. By working together with their FP, they can come out on top.

Sephiroth Smash Bros Ultimate Final Fantasy VII Rebirth director

New character reveals for Smash Bros. are always a big deal, and Nintendo tries to keep as much secrecy around each announcement as it possibly can. Even those you may think would be tuned in to what’s happening behind the scenes are kept in the dark.

One example is this was the Sephiroth DLC for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. As it turns out, no one on the Final Fantasy VII Rebirth team knew that he would be joining Nintendo’s game. That includes Naoki Hamaguchi, the director of Square Enix’s new RPG.

rarest smash bros amiibo

With the Super Smash Bros. amiibo line now finishing with Sora, we’ve put together a list going over the top five rarest figures.

Nintendo has recently announced restocks of several Super Smash Bros. series amiibo figures – including Joker, Terry, and Banjo & Kazooie, who all lie among the rarest of these figurines (especially Joker). To add to this, Nintendo also restocked female Corrin last year, who was once considered the single rarest Super Smash Bros. amiibo. Given how much each individual character’s availability has changed, we’ve put together a list of Smash Bros. series amiibo figures who haven’t yet been restocked. It’s entirely possible that this list changes part way in the year depending on future restocks, so for now, keep in mind that this list is current as of February 2024.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate update 13.0.2

Just in case you forgot, the Sora amiibo is just around the corner, and so the game is adding functionality to support it. The figure drops on February 16.

amiibo training guide

With the release of the Sora amiibo on the horizon, we’ve put together an in-depth amiibo training guide for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate that applies to every fighter in the game.

If you’re looking to raise a powerful amiibo to beat up your friends, we’ve got you covered. Before you start training a character, you’ll need to choose whether to give it Spirits or not. Spirits are character-augmenting equipment pieces that can boost Attack, Defense, and more. With a proper Spirit setup, you can turn an amiibo into a menace. That said, amiibo with Spirits are sometimes too powerful even for human opponents to beat. If you’d rather raise an amiibo that’s more fair to your friends, you can easily opt out of giving it Spirits altogether. Do note that once an amiibo has Spirits, they can’t be removed via natural means.

Smash Bros. Ultimate Sora amiibo release date

December 6: On social media, Nintendo just announced the final release date for the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate amiibo. The figure arrives on February 16, 2024.

Sora marks the end of the Smash Bros. amiibo line. Once this figure is out, every character in the game will have received their own figure. Nintendo had already released a bunch when Smash Bros. for Wii U and 3DS were around and then continued things with Ultimate. Even all of the DLC fighters were given amiibo.
