Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

All of the DLC fighters in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate have finally been made known. A couple of weeks ago, director Masahiro Sakurai revealed that Sora from Kingdom Hearts is joining the game. Players around the world were then able to try out the character for themselves a few days ago.

It’s been a long ride for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate going back to its original launch in December 2018. The title has seen nearly a dozen of additional characters since its original release. Other than Sora, we’ve seen Joker from Persona 5, Hero from Dragon Quest XI, Banjo & Kazooie from the N64 game, Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury, Byleth from Fire Emblem: Three Houses, Min Min from ARMS, Steve & Alex from Minecraft, Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII, Pyra / Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and Kazuya from Tekken.

With Nintendo putting an end to DLC in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, how are you feeling about it all? Were you satisfied with the selections on the whole? Who’s your personal favorite out of the DLC fighters? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.

In his latest column for Famitsu, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai talked in-depth about the game’s latest DLC fighter, Sora from Kingdom Hearts, including how an unplanned meeting with a Disney rep kicked off the whole process. He spoke about the negotiations with Square Enix and Disney, how Sora was actually the series’ most requested playable character ever, as well as unpacking many details around the character’s design.

Below is a full translation of what Sakurai had to say.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be hosting its latest event this week, and as expected, this one is all about the Spirit Board. It will focus on spirits who prominently feature their fists. Characters include Meowth from Pokemon, Tora from Xenoblade Chronicles 2, and King Hippo from Punch-Out!! (you can see more of the inclusions above). Defeat these spirits to earn more gold than you usually would.

Nintendo is done with Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – at least when it comes to DLC. However, it seems that new events will continue to be held at least for the time being.

Original: Version 13.0.0 has arrived in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as the game’s last major update. It is beginning to roll out to all consoles worldwide now.

The new update should eventually be downloaded to your system automatically if you’ve been playing recently. However, you can grab it right away by going to the Switch home menu, selecting the Smash Bros. Ultimate icon, pressing the “+” button, choosing “Software Update” and finally “Via the Internet”.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is now offering the Spirit Boost Bundle #2 – but only if you’re a subscriber to Nintendo Switch Online. This is also known as “Reaching Lv. MAX”.

The bundle is pretty simple, as you’ll be getting two things. In addition to 3000 SP, Nintendo is providing Snack (L) x30.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is planning its latest tourney, which will focus on the Blast Box. During the event, many of these items will be appearing during battle. While they can be hazardous, if you use them properly, they can give you an edge in battle. The types of spirits you can receive will improve as you pick up more wins.

With Sora joining Smash Bros. Ultimate as the game’s DLC fighter on October 18, we can’t help but wonder what Nintendo is planning for next week’s event. Nintendo has often flip flopped between tournaments and Spirits Board events. In any case, we should be finding out in a week from today, and we’ll bring you the news per usual.

As for this week’s event, the new Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament with the Blast Box item will begin on October 15. It will last for a total of three days like most normal events in the game.


There’s another video up on Nintendo Everything’s YouTube channel!

After three years, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is finally complete. The game is very unique and probably the most ambitious crossover in the history of gaming, or perhaps the most well-executed. We received characters from different games, companies, and countries. An event like that may never happen again.

Today’s video is a reflection of Smash on the past three years, discussing why some people love the game so much and why it’s so special. Give it a look below.

Nintendo has passed along a new set of screenshots for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate that highlights the game’s recently-revealed Mii Fighter costumes for Doom Slayer, Octoling Wig, and Judd Had. The full set was unveiled during the final presentation for the title hosted by director Masahiro Sakurai.

The full set of images is below:

Nintendo has revealed the next event available for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Following last week’s tournament, this week will have a new Spirit Board event featuring new spirits from Metroid Dread. These featured spirits will award bonus SP upon being defeated, and include Samus (Metroid Dread), E.M.M.I, and Chozo Soldier. The new event coincides with and celebrates the arrival of Metroid Dread.
