Normally, you only expect a company that made a game to celebrate hallmark occasions. But it seems Nintendo is breaking the mold. Octopath Traveler debuted back on July 13, 2018, and its second birthday is coming up. To pay tribute, an Octopath Traveler Super Smash Bros Ultimate Spirit Board event will be held in-game between July 10-15, 2020. Best of all, everyone will be there! [Thanks, Resetera!]

Information about the event was released via the official website, with the introductory image showing what the four different Octopath Traveler Spirits being added will look like. They will appear in pairs. Alfyn and Therion are together as one Spirit. H’aanit and Ophilia are another pair. The remaining two are Olberic and Primrose, then Tressa and Cyrus. Nintendo didn’t note if they are Primary or Support Spirits.

New Spirits tend to appear at a pretty decent pace in Super Smash Bros Ultimate. Back in April 2020, Trials of Mana Spirits were added. Before that, we saw Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Ring Fit Adventure characters appear.

Super Smash Bros Ultimate is available for the Nintendo Switch. Octopath Traveler is available for the Nintendo Switch, PC, and Google Stadia. The Octopath Traveler Super Smash Bros Ultimate event will be held between July 10-15, 2020.
