Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Spirit Battles Trailer

A new singleplayer mode has been revealed this week during the Smash-focused Nintendo Direct broadcast. Say hello to Spirit Battles in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Spirit Battles mode allows players to take on ultra-powerful versions of CPU opponents. These opponents are augmented in myriad ways with a whole host of “Spirits”, each one changing the way they fight with creative mechanics or super-charged combos.

The full roster for this mode includes 74 base fighters from across the gaming scene. The characters available in the mode come from franchises like Metal Gear Solid V, and run the gamut to Paper Mario The Thousand Year Door. 

Once you pick a fighter and an opponent, you can them apply various buffs or gameplay changes to the fighters using Spirits. There are multiple types of spirits with various levels or ranks. There are both main and support Spirits as well, each category offering different types and levels of changes. This means that the number of effects, which range from cloned enemies and huge damage buffs, to stage changing abilities, makes for literally hundreds of possible combinations.
