Smash Bros. Freebie Available For Switch Online Members

NSO subscribers can claim another free pack of items for Smash Bros. Ultimate's Spirit Board mode.


Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's latest DLC character, Min Min from Arms, is now available alongside the title's 8.0 update, but that's not all that's new for the mascot fighting game. On top of that, Nintendo is giving away another Smash Bros. freebie for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers.

Right now, NSO members can grab a new Spirit Board Challenge Pack for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Like previous freebies, this pack contains a handful of helpful items for the game's Spirit Board mode. You'll get the following:

  • All Primaries x10
  • All Supports x10
  • Rematch x5
  • Sluggish Shield x10
  • Shield Spacer x10

To claim the Spirit Board Challenge Pack, go into the Switch Eshop and select the Nintendo Switch Online option on the left sidebar. From there, you'll see the pack listed near the top of the page under exclusive offers. Click on the pack and select Download to claim it.

Like previous Spirit Board Challenge Packs, this freebie is only available to those who have an active paid Nintendo Switch Online subscription; you can't claim the pack during a free trial period. Individual NSO memberships cost $4 USD for one, $8 USD for three months, and $20 USD for one year, while an annual family plan runs for $35 USD.

That's not the only freebie that NSO subscribers can claim right now; Nintendo is also giving away an exclusive Nook Inc. rug for Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Meanwhile, Tetris 99--which is free to download and play for NSO members--recently got a Xenoblade Chronicles crossover theme as part of its latest Maximus Cup event.

As for Min Min, she's available alongside a new stage--Spring Stadium--and a handful of Arms music tracks. The Min Min challenger pack is available individually for $6 USD or as part of Smash Bros. Ultimate's Fighters Pass Vol. 2, which costs $30 USD and grants holders access to all six upcoming DLC characters as they release.
