Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Paper Mario Spirit Event AnnouncedPeter GrimmGame Rant – Feed


Super Smash Bros. Ultimate hasn’t gotten any substantial new content in a few weeks, and as such, fans have been combing the internet for any clue as to who Smash Ultimate’s next DLC character will be. While they wait for that announcement, Nintendo will be hosting a new spirit event centered around Paper Mario: The Origami King.

Only a couple of weeks have passed since Smash’s last spirit event, but the game’s official Japanese Twitter page announced that players will have another one to take on starting this Friday, August 28. In keeping with the Paper Mario theme, the five-day event, whose name translates to Origami Ambitions (an official English name hasn’t been revealed yet), will introduce three new spirits from The Origami King, these being Olivia, King Olly, and Origami Peach.

Nintendo has built up an impressive collection of spirits in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Since the game launched almost two years ago, the company has been regularly adding to it with plenty of cool and unusual picks. With over 1,300+ to choose from, events like these really go a long way towards highlighting characters players might not even know are in the game, as well as characters that should be added to Smash Bros. Ultimate’s playable roster.

In the same way that Ultimate’s spirit events have given players something to do between major DLC drops, Paper Mario: The Origami King has given Nintendo fans a new game to play in 2020 other than Animal Crossing: New Horizons. With how well Mario’s latest paper-themed RPG has been doing since it came out last month, it’s no surprise that Nintendo wants to hype it up further in Smash.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available for Switch.
