Super Smash Bros Ultimate Gets 2 Year Anniversary Event Starting Today

Super Smash Bros Ultimate has received three new characters this year so far, and it remains a firm fixture of multiplayer game nights around the world.

To celebrate the game's second anniversary (has it really been two years already?), Nintendo is rolling out a three-day spirit event imaginatively titled "SSB Ultimate Is Two Years Old".

Super Smash Bros Ultimate: SSB Ultimate Is Two Years Old Event Details

In a tweet from the Nintendo of Europe account, the publisher confirmed that the event is live now:

"Celebrate the second anniversary of #SmashBrosUltimate with the three-day spirit event "SSB Ultimate is Two Years Old!", now on!" the tweet reads.

"EXP and SP earned after battle during this event will be tripled, and you'll get the Rematch item."

Expect plenty of players to log in for the event in order to earn bonus EXP and SP, and earn the Rematch item.

With The Game Awards next week, it could be a great time to reacquaint ourselves with the huge Smash Bros Ultimate roster before a potential announcement.

While no new characters were announced last year, the 2018 awards revealed Joker from Persona 5 would be joining the fray.

With Byleth, Min Min and Minecraft's Steve having joined the lineup, the next character is a mystery for now.
