Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will welcome three spirits based on characters from Hyrule Warriors: Age of calamity on 8th January 2021.
While many Super Smash Bros. fans have been expecting more playable characters from Zelda, they are set to receive a new set of limited-time event spirits. Based on the characters of the recently released Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, these spirits are expected to be an excellent addition. Read along!
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate revealed the next set of spirits through an announcement via the SmashBrosJP Twitter page. This set comprises three spirits based on Age of Calamity characters.
Official artwork suggests that the three spirits are Impa (probable sheik), Terrako (probable R.O.B), and Master Kohga (probable Greninja). The spirits will be released on 8th January and will be available for five days.
Note: there is a high possibility that the spirits will be permanently added to the game at a future point, just like other limited-time event spirits.
“Apocalypse of the Zelda Musou Disaster to the Battlefield 100 Years Ago” will be held for 5 days from 1/8 (Friday)! During the period, three new spirits of “Hyrule Warriors Apocalypse” will appear. Please check it!
The Age of Calamity fans have been quick to complain about these spirits in the update’s comment section. They feel that this event ends the possibility of Impa making it to the game as a DLC character.
Although unlikely, rumors report that another Koei Techmo character could be on its way to Nintendo’s popular crossover fighting game.
The Spirits didn’t receive a very positive response when they were first announced. Many fans are deeming them as unworthy replacements for trophies.
However, these limited-time event spirits have helped establish a unique framework for regular tournaments. They have enabled series like Resident Evil to be included in the game with a playable character.
Fans might feel saddened for not getting any Zelda characters, but they should give these new spirits a chance to lift their spirits.
