Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Adds Bowser's Fury Spirits This Week

Three new Spirits based on Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury are debuting as part of the fighting game's latest Spirit Board event.


A new Spirit Board event is now live in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This event runs through April 13 and introduces several new Spirits based on Super Mario 3D World + Bowser's Fury, the expanded Switch port of the acclaimed Wii U Mario game.

Three new Bowser's Fury Spirits in total have been added to the game: Fury Bowser, Giga Cat Mario, and the Kittens. All three Spirits will periodically appear on the Spirit Board throughout the event, and you'll earn extra gold each time you defeat them in battle.

The Bowser's Fury event is scheduled to run until 11 PM PT on April 13 (2 AM ET on April 14). If you miss out on the Spirits during the event, you'll have another chance to find them on the Spirit Board and in the game's shop at a later date.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has been regularly introducing new Spirits based on big Switch releases. Last week, three Monster Hunter Rise Spirits made their debut in the game, while two Bravely Default II Spirits were added back in February.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's most recent content update released back in March and introduced another new DLC fighter to the game: Pyra and Mythra from Xenoblade Chronicles 2. Two more DLC characters are still in development, but Nintendo hasn't shared any hints as to who those will be or when they will release.
