Smash Bros. Ultimate Adds Bravely Default 2 Spirits
The game's next Spirit Board event runs until March 2 and introduces two new Spirits based on Square Enix's new Switch RPG.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is celebrating this week's launch of Bravely Default II with a new Spirit Board event. The event is now underway and introduces the four Heroes of Light from Square Enix's newest Switch RPG as Spirits.
The heroes are paired up to make two different Spirits: Seth & Gloria and Elvis & Adelle. Each of those will appear periodically on the Spirit Board throughout the event. You'll also earn extra Spirit Points each time you defeat the new Bravely Default Spirits. The event runs until 10 PM PT on March 2.
Bravely Default II launched for Switch on February 26. Despite the number in its title, it's actually the third proper installment in its series thus far, following the original Bravely Default and its sequel, Bravely Second. Bravely Default II is also a self-contained adventure, featuring an original cast of characters and story.
We scored the new RPG a 6/10 in our Bravely Default II review. "There's a lot to like and a core that's still fun and engaging. But the removal of some key quality-of-life features gives this experience a lot more friction than the prior games," GameSpot critic Steve Watts wrote.
Ahead of Bravely Default II's release, Square Enix recently shared a new trailer explaining the game's battle system. A free demo for the game is also available on the Switch eShop. You can read more about the upcoming RPG in our Bravely Default II preorder guide.
Smash Bros. Ultimate's next DLC fighters are Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2. The newcomers were first revealed during Nintendo's February 2021 Direct presentation, and game director Masahiro Sakurai will give us an in-depth look at them during a dedicated Smash Bros. stream next week, on March 4. The two-in-one character is slated to arrive sometime next month.
