The fight evolves in this unique take to Smash Bros.
During today’s Nintendo Direct presentation, a new game mode was revealed for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This mode being Spirits – a brand new game mode that was catered for this iteration of Smash.
In the Spirits mode, non-playable characters from a broad number of series become ‘spirits’ that power-up the player during battle, with an RPG hint of taste to the action. There will be different kind of levels of spirits, some that work better than others in a rock-paper-scissor style, so plan accordingly!
You’ll be able to train them and raise them to higher levels and even apply them to your amiibo. For more information regarding Spirits, take a look below.
Spirits: In the world of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, many video game characters lose their forms and become “spirits” that serve as a power-up of sorts for a player’s main playable fighter. There is a massive number of wildly different spirits, ranging from Chibi-Robo to Dr. Wily to Tails to Revolver Ocelot, with the giant list of characters going on and on. Players can equip primary and support spirits to power up or add additional abilities like speed or strength to their fighter during battles. Mixing and matching spirits will help players get the upper hand against certain opponents, adding quite a bit of strategy to battles. Equipping a spirit is similar to equipping a charm or accessory in an RPG. It’s a way for players to enjoy a massive amount of additional video game characters outside of selecting them as playable fighters.
Spirit Battles: The main way to acquire spirits is to win Spirit Battles. After winning a Spirit Battle, players will have to complete a roulette challenge to acquire that spirit.
Leveling Up Spirits: By battling with spirits by their side, players can level up spirits, giving them extra power and sometimes unlocking enhanced forms. The more leveled up and trained spirits are, the more powerful and useful they are.
Spirit Combinations: With an insane amount of spirits in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, thousands of combinations can be formed. Players will be constantly surprised and excited by all the spirits that pop up in the game. Because players might collect an abundance of spirits, the game will offer recommendations for primary and support spirits, making the selection process a little bit easier.
