Simulate otherwise impossible battles!

Fighters can join forces with spirits to give them a boost in battle, and even borrow their special powers. Face off against fighters controlled by spirits, who take on some of the properties of the spirit, in loads of unique battle scenarios. Put simply, spirits let you simulate battles between characters from more series than ever before!

And that’s not all…

DLC is on the way!

More fighters, stages and music are coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as downloadable content!

Each set, containing one fighter, one stage and music tracks, can be purchased individually, or together in the Fighters Pass bundle. The Fighters Pass will give you access to all sets, as they are released: five fighters, five stages and all their music tracks.
