Nintendo has just rolled out Version 11.0.0 of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Apart from the new DLC characters, fighter adjustments and fixes, it seems this update also includes some extra goodies for anyone who has save data for Persona 5 Strikers or Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection.
If you've played either of these games on your Nintendo Switch, you'll receive a spirit for Sophia (Persona 5 Strikers) or Sir Arthur (Ghosts 'n Goblins Resurrection). Here's a look:
As noted on Nintendo's official Smash Bros. website, both of these spirits will be available to the rest of the Smash Bros. Ultimate player base at a later date:
"If you haven't yet played the game on your console, the Arthur/Sophia spirit is planned to be made available to all players at a future date."
As an additional bonus, if you play Smash Bros. and then return to Persona 5 Strikers, you'll unlock more music in that game. Below is what you'll get if you have a Smash and Persona 5 Strikers save on your system (via Gematsu):
"you will receive the “Persona 5 Sound Set,” which includes the Persona 5 battle song “Last Surprise” and Persona 5 Royal preemptive battle song “Take Over,” which can be used as the standard battle music for Persona 5 Scramble: The Phantom Strikers"
Did you get these spirits when you updated to Version 11.0.0? Leave a comment down below.
This reminds me of that one time the only was to unlock rosalina in mkwii was to buy SMG
I haven't gotten Persona 5 Strikers on Switch but if I do I'll definitely try this out
Honestly a big missed opportunity of the Persona spirit board was that it was pretty much 100% Persona 5-centric with the exception of Igor
@1ofUs It wasn’t the only way but you had to beat multiple time trials in order to get it.
What about Persona 5 Strikers... on PS4?
Don't you also get extra music for P5S if you got SSBU data on the Switch?
@ToadBrigade Mine too. But I willing to buy these games at a sale, this "offer" is forever or until same date?
@SpiderSquid Yeah, it's the same bonus PS4 players get for having a Persona 5/P5 Royal save on their console.
@RCGamer @ToadBrigade These spirits will be available to everyone in the future, so you don’t have to buy these games to complete your spirit collections.
I’ll probably get Strikers anyway since I like Musou games, but I have zero interest in Ghosts n’ Goblins Resurrection.
That’s terrible for completionists
@JoakimZ understand. But I genuinely intended to buy both of them. I really into P5S and G&G was part of my childhood, I'm curious (but at least in a half price). I'm wandering if when I bought them I'll get the spirits automatically (it could take some time, specially G&G)
I think I will dig in at some point.
P5Strikers is brilliant, loving it in switch
Playing the PC version, so I'll be missing out. Glad they're adding it later for everyone else
I want to have all spirits but I'm not gonna buy these games just for these spirits.
Also I'm confused. Do you unlock music in Smash if you have Persona 5 Strikers save data? Or do you unlock music in Persona 5 Strikers if you have Smash save data?
@Freddyfred they will be available later just like every other spirit.
@Not-Geno didn't know that. Thanks
I do wish to have 100% spirits. This is a very good way to promote lesser known games. However, I already own maybe 300 switch games I never touched. I am not in a rush to add to that list.
@Yosher You unlock music in P5S if you have Smash with the Joker dlc. It adds the Smash version of Beneath the Mask iirc.
[EDIT] After doing some more research it seems I must've just remembered wrong and you don't get Beneath the Mask as a bonus song
@SpiderSquid If you have save data of Smash Ultimate, you unlock Take Over and Last Surprise as music tracks in Strikers
@Yosher it’s the latter; Smash save data—> New music for P5S
@Kirbo100 wait really? I knew it would add Take Over and Last Surprise, but not Beneath the Mask!
@OwenGamer22 After doing some research, it seems I was mistaken. I thought I heard something back in the day about Beneath the Mask being available if you had Smash data but I guess I just remembered wrong
@OwenGamer22 @Kirbo100 Thank you both! Good to know.
This kind of aggressive marketing is disgusting...
