Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Celebrates First Birthday With Triple Rewards

An extra incentive to play Smash Bros this weekend.


Super Smash Bros. Ultimate turns a year old on December 7, and to celebrate Nintendo is tripling the rewards handed out at the end of Spirit Board fights for anyone who plays the game over the weekend. The new Smash Bros. event triples EXP and SP rewards. This will help you to level up your spirits much faster.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has doubled or tripled the rewards on the Spirit Board a few times, but this is the first time it's had a clear celebratory purpose--and because of that, everyone gets a present too. You'll be given a Damage 50% item after your fights, which will come in handy--it forces your opponent to start the fight with 50% damage. These rewards will be active from December 6 through December 8, after which time the rates will return to normal.

Unfortunately, this also means that the Resident Evil Spirit Board event has ended; hopefully we'll see more guest characters appearing on the board in the near future.

While you're in-game, if it's been a while and you're a Nintendo Switch Online subscriber you can nab a bonus. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate's fourth DLC character, Terry Bogard, recently joined the fight, but there are more fighters in the works beyond him.
