SSBU Metroid Dread Spirits of Samus and EMMI Always Available Now

SSBU Metroid Dread Spirits of Samus and EMMI Always Available Now

Back in October 2021, Nintendo announced new Metroid Dread Spirits of characters like Samus would be available in SSBU. However, they were part of a limited time event. If people didn’t take part by October 13, 2021, they’d miss their chance for a while. Now, Nintendo’s Japanese Twitter account confirmed all three Spirits are available all the time in-game.

Here’s the official announcement. It also showed off the three Metroid Dread SSBU Spirits. In addition to bringing another Samus Primary Spirit variant to SSBU, it also added an E.M.M.I. as a Primary Spirit and Chozo Soldier as a Support Spirit.

For reference, the Metroid Dread Samus SSBU Primary Spirit is a three-star Shield-type. It increases the power of shooting items when equipped and has three slots. The E.M.M.I. is a three-star Attack-type with two slots. It increases a character’s speed once equipped. The Chozo Soldier is a two-star Support Spirit that takes up one slot. It increases the power of battering items.

These were among the last Spirits to be added to the game. The others are a selection of Kingdom Hearts characters. They joined alongside the last DLC character, Sora.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is available for the Nintendo Switch. So is Metroid Dread.
