Nintendo is trying something a little different for this week’s Super Smash Bros. Ultimate event.
While the crossover fighting game’s past events have all revolved around certain types of Spirits becoming more available, the event launching in the game tonight will let players level up whatever they want twice as fast. From 10 p.m. PT on January 10th until the same time on Sunday, January 13th, all Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players will earn double XP and SP in Spirit Board matches.
On 11/01, the three-day event “Double EXP and SP!” will take place on the Spirit Board!
Any EXP and SP earned through Spirit Board battles during this event period will be doubled!

This event will give players a chance to power up their Spirits extremely quickly. For players who have been collecting every new Spirit weekly, it’s a nice change of pace, and hints that the game may have different kinds of events going forwards. So far, these in-game events have been running nearly every weekend since the game launched.
For those who want to keep pushing their Spirits forward, this double XP and SP event will be the perfect time to grind through a few matches and power up.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is out now, exclusively on Nintendo Switch.
