A Second Smash Bros. Ultimate Freebie Is Available Now For Nintendo Switch Online Subscribers

NSO subscribers can claim another free Spirit Board Challenge Pack in Smash Ultimate.


The first SNES games on Switch finally arrived on the Nintendo Switch Online service this month, but that's not all that subscribers can take advantage of right now. In addition to a free gift for Super Kirby Clash, Nintendo is offering another exclusive freebie for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. A second Spirit Board Challenge Pack is now available on the Switch Eshop, and it comes with an assortment of helpful items for the game's Spirit Board mode.

Much like the previous Spirit Board Challenge Pack, you can only download this freebie if you have a paid NSO subscription; those trying the service via a free trial are ineligible to claim it. This pack contains a variety of items that should make it a bit easier to challenge some of the game's tougher Spirits. You'll get the following:

To download the pack, select the Eshop icon from Smash Bros. Ultimate's main menu and you'll see it listed beneath the game's other downloadable content.

Switch Online subscriptions are available for US $4 / £3.49 / AU $6 for one month, US $8 / £7 / AU $12 for three months, and US $20 / £18 / AU $30 for one year. Nintendo also offers an annual Family Membership that costs US $35 / £31.49 / AU $55 and covers up to eight Nintendo Accounts across multiple systems. The service gives you access to online play, cloud saves, and other exclusive perks, such as Tetris 99 and a library of classic NES and SNES games.

The first Spirit Board Challenge pack launched alongside Smash Ultimate's 4.0 update, which added the Hero from Dragon Quest to the roster. The game's newest playable character is the bear and bird duo Banjo-Kazooie, who arrived alongside the 5.0 update following September's Nintendo Direct. The next DLC fighter, Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury, will join the roster in November.
