Smash Bros. Ultimate Is Adding More Square Enix Spirits

Nintendo is holding another Spirit Board event in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate this week. The event kicks off July 9 at 11 PM PT and features new Spirits based on Square Enix’s retro-inspired RPG, Octopath Traveler.

Throughout the event, four new Spirits representing Octopath Traveler’s main cast–Olberic & Primrose, Tressa & Cyrus, Alfyn & Therion, and H’aanit & Ophelia–will appear periodically on the Spirit Board. If you defeat the new Spirits, you’ll add them to your collection and earn more SP than usual.

The Octopath Traveler Spirit Board event runs until 11 PM PT, July 14. You can read more on Nintendo’s website.

If you missed your chance to unlock the Cuphead and Warframe Spirits during their respective events earlier this year, you’re in luck; those are once again available in the game. You’ll be able to encounter them randomly on the Spirit Board or in Smash Bros. Ultimate’s in-game shop.

Smash Bros. Ultimate’s latest DLC character, Min Min, comes with her own entourage of Arms Spirits to unlock. The new fighter arrived last month alongside the game’s 8.0 update, which made balance adjustments to numerous characters and introduced a new wave of Mii Fighter costumes, including one based on Fallout’s Vault Boy.

In other Smash Bros. news, Nintendo Switch Online subscribers can grab a new freebie for the game. Nintendo is offering another free Spirit Board Challenge Pack, which comes with a handful of helpful items for Spirit Board mode. Nintendo also confirmed that Amiibo figures of Joker and Dragon Quest’s Hero are releasing this fall.
