New Smash Bros. Ultimate Freebie Available For Switch Online Members
NSO subscribers can now grab another free item pack for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate from the Switch eShop.
Nintendo is giving Switch Online subscribers another freebie for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. For a limited time, members can claim the Vault Shopper Set 2 bundle, which comes with 3,000 Gold and five Classic Tickets. The latter can be wagered before a run in Classic Mode for additional rewards.
To claim the Vault Shopper Set 2 pack, you'll need to open the Switch eShop and select the "Nintendo Switch Online" option from the left sidebar. After you've done that, you'll find the pack listed among the other free offers near the top of the page. Click on the pack and select Download to claim it.
Like previous Smash Bros. freebies, the Vault Shopper Set 2 is only available to those who have an active paid Switch Online membership; you can't download the pack during a free trial to the service. You can learn more about subscription costs and benefits in our Nintendo Switch Online guide.
The latest DLC character for Smash Bros. Ultimate is Steve from Minecraft. The blocky fighter arrived alongside the game's 9.0 update on October 13. Like previous DLC characters, Steve brings his own new Minecraft-inspired stage, as well as new music tracks and additional Spirits to unlock in the game's Spirit Board mode.
Steve is the second DLC character to arrive as part of Smash Bros. Ultimate's Fighters Pass Vol. 2, following Min Min from Arms. Four more DLC fighters are still on the horizon, but Nintendo hasn't teased who those will be. The Fighters Pass Vol. 2 costs $30 USD. Each character pack can also be purchased individually for $6 USD.
