As the Autumn chill and ubiquity of pumpkin spice makes its presence known, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is going in a different direction. The seasons appear to be turning in reverse, with a Spirit Board event in bloom that wouldn’t have been out of place this May.
For three days starting on Friday, spirits of characters related to nature will be budding their way onto the Spirit Board in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate! pic.twitter.com/7akHS97azH

Yes, the bounty of nature is bringing forth a field of flowering spirits and plant based characters. Pikmin are a perfect fit, but the likes of Prince Peasley and Daisy Mae show it’s not just petals that are invited. It’s times like these I can’t help but wish Panel de Pon’s Lip was fully playable, but alas, that seed still hasn’t sprouted.
Gather up this bouquet of spirits all weekend long, starting Friday, September 24th.
