Switch Online members can claim a free Spirit Board item bundle for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate right now.


Nintendo is offering Switch Online members another freebie for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. For a limited time, subscribers can grab the Spirit Booster Bundle #2 from the Nintendo eShop.

This item set contains 3,000 Spirit Points and 30 large snacks, which will help you level up your Spirits. To claim the bundle, access the Nintendo eShop and select Nintendo Switch Online from the left sidebar. You'll see the Spirit Booster set listed under Special Offers near the top of the page.

As mentioned, this freebie is available exclusively to players who have an active, paid Nintendo Switch Online membership. It can't be claimed during a free trial.

In addition to periodic freebies, the Nintendo Switch Online service grants subscribers access to a library of classic NES and SNES games, as well as the ability to play online multiplayer and back up saves to the cloud. Individual subscriptions cost $4 for one month, $8 for three months and $20 for one year.

Nintendo is also adding a new premium tier to the Switch Online service soon. As the company revealed during its September 2021 Nintendo Direct, this tier is called the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, and it includes all the benefits of the base service along with a library of classic Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis games. The tier launches on Oct. 25.

This Super Smash Bros. freebie arrived just days ahead of the game's final DLC character, Sora from Kingdom Hearts. Game director Masahiro Sakurai gave fans a deep-dive look at Sora during Nintendo's final Super Smash Bros. Ultimate presentation earlier this month, where he also revealed the last wave of Mii Fighter costumes. Sora costs $6 to purchase individually and is included in the Fighters Pass Vol. 2, while the Mii Fighter costumes retail for 75 cents apiece.
