Nintendo has announced the next in-game event for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. This week's Spirit event is entitled "Oh Yeah! Mario Time!". It features a variety of characters from the Mario series, as well as a handful of exclusive spirits that you can not get otherwise.
Unlike the two previous Spirit events in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate up to now, both only being available for three days, the "Oh Yeah! Mario Time!" The event will begin on December 27th at 10:00 pm (December 28th at 10:00 am Paris time) and will continue until the same time on January 1st. You have five days to enjoy it. During this period, an assortment of Mario spirits, such as legendary class Pauline and Dry Bowser, will appear more frequently on the Spirits Chart. You will also earn extra gold for defeating these spirits.
In addition to this, the event will also feature some exclusive Super Mario Party party spirits: the Novice Class Dice Block, the Advanced Class River Survival Course and the Ace Class Golden Dash Mushroom. These three were not yet available in the game and will appear every day at specific times throughout the event. You will want to add them to your collection while they are still there.

Last week's event was the first part of the Fire Emblem Fest, which allowed Fire Emblem characters such as Azura and Eliwood to appear more frequently on the Spirit Board. Nintendo has not yet announced the date of the second part, but this should be held in January.
