The Game Boy - where would handheld gaming be without it? With this in mind, this week Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is paying its respect to this past Nintendo generation with a special Spirit Board event.

This event will start on 25th September (this Friday) and will run for a total of three days. During this time you'll encounter spirits from the Game Boy and Game Boy Color generation. If you're able to defeat them, you'll be rewarded with extra gold.

As can be seen in the artwork above, there are characters from the Shantae series, Pokémon from both the Red and Blue, and Gold and Silver generations, characters from The Legend of Zelda series, and even Muddy Mole from Mole Mania. Will you be participating in this upcoming event? Tell us in the comments below.
