Nintendo is offering Switch Online subscribers another exclusive freebie for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. The second Spirit Board Challenge Pack is live on the Switch Eshop, and it comes with an assortment of helpful items for the game’s Spirit Board mode.
Much like the previous Spirit Board Challenge Pack, you can only download this freebie if you have a paid NSO subscription; those trying the service via a free trial are ineligible to claim it. This pack contains a variety of items that should make it a bit easier to challenge some of the game’s tougher Spirits. You’ll get the following:
- 1,500 Spirit Points
- 5 Rematch
- 5 Damage 50%
- 5 Weaken Minions
- 5 Health Drain
To download the pack, select the Eshop icon from Smash Bros. Ultimate’s main menu and you’ll see it listed beneath the game’s other downloadable content. Alternatively, you can go straight into the Eshop and click on the Nintendo Switch Online option on the left sidebar; you’ll see the Spirit Board Challenge Pack listed under exclusive offers.
Switch Online subscriptions are available for US $4 / £3.49 / AU $6 for one month, US $8 / £7 / AU $12 for three months, and US $20 / £18 / AU $30 for one year. Nintendo also offers an annual Family Membership that costs US $35 / £31.49 / AU $55 and covers up to eight Nintendo Accounts across multiple systems. The service gives you access to online play, cloud saves, and other exclusive perks, such as Tetris 99 and a library of classic NES games.
The first Spirit Board Challenge pack launched alongside Smash Ultimate’s 4.0 update, which added the Hero from Dragon Quest to the roster. The game’s next playable character is the bear and bird duo Banjo-Kazooie, who are slated to arrive sometime this fall. We may hear more about the new DLC character’s during this week’s Nintendo Direct, which airs Wednesday, September 4 at 3 PM PT / 6 PM ET.
