The Ultimate Smash experience truly comes to an end.
Super Smash Bros. Another aspect of Ultimate seems to be coming to an end with Nintendo confirming that in-game events like the new Spirit Board and themed tournaments will be reinstated starting next week.
Resmi Smash Bros. Japan Twitter According to his account, starting November 19, Nintendo will begin recycling old Spirit and tournament events instead of creating new content for Ultimate.
Many fans predicted that this would happen relatively soon after Sora's release last month, which marked the end of the Fighters Pass DLC and significant development work on Ultimate. It just means that no new content will be added to Ultimate after this point, which bans any new announcements from Nintendo, especially since series creator Masahiro Sakurai has left the game.
The final new tournament will run for three days starting November 12, focusing on stages where players like the Mute City SNES, Spirit Train, and Pilotwings fight on moving vehicles.
With this news, it's still unclear whether Nintendo will completely stop working on Ultimate with future balance updates, which could have a serious impact on the online player base and the game's competitive landscape if update 13.0 introducing Sora is the final release.
