Ever since the game’s launch, we’ve seen themed batches of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Spirits for the sake of events, so you’ll imagine how refreshing it is to see another aspect of the game get a similar treatment. Next up is a three day online tournament — and what better way to start those off than check where Smash itself began?


Scrolling through Twitter, that banner stood out immediately as the eight original fighters of Smash. They (and presumably the first four unlockable characters) will be the only ones allowed to participate in the “Original Class of ‘64” event. Stages and items are getting the same treatment, only allowing those that’ve been around since ‘99.

You can join in and fight it out yourself starting tonight, August 22nd, at 11 p.m. PT.

When he isn’t writing for Nintendo Wire, Ricky’s anticipating the next Kirby, Fire Emblem, or if the stars ever align, Mother 3 to be released. Till then he’ll have the warm comfort of Super Smash Bros. to keep him going.
