Hold on this can’t be right… it’s 2024 and I’m still writing about Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Spirit Board events?

Yes, as previously announced we’re about to see brand new Spirits arrive in Smash Ultimate! The focus this time is on newer Switch titles relevant to Ultimate, with four in particular being spotlighted.


What new spirits are coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate?

  • The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom
  • Xenoblade Chronicles 3
  • Splatoon 3
  • Pikmin 4

We can see TotK’s Rauru, the soon to be amiibo’d Noah and Mio, all three members of Deep Cut, and the default Rescue Corps. member of Pikmin 4 – perched atop Oatchi of course. 

This will be the first of four new waves of Spirits, and will last for five days starting January 11th. Expect them to drop this Thursday night, and (again, can’t believe I still get to say this) look forward to more Smash Ultimate news soon!

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.
