Save the new spirit of Monster Hunter Stories 2 with Super Smash Bros.

update [Wed 10th Nov, 2021 02:30 GMT]: This same spirit is now available to all players through the Smash Bros. Ultimate Spirit Board and Shop. Previously, it was exclusively for players who had a Monster Hunter Store 2: Wings of Blue Inn save file on Switch.


Original work [Wed 30th Jun, 2021 04:25 BST]: Nintendo Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.. This isn’t the first time this has happened, and probably not the last.

If you happen to play Monster Hunter Stories 2: Wings of Ruin Having a game save file on your Nintendo Switch unlocks the special spirit of Smash: Super Smash Bros. and the game’s heroes.

The progress of the save from the Monster Hunter Stories 2 demo will be carried over to the full version of the game, but this same file does not currently seem to unleash the above spirit in Smash Ultimate. If you have any other comments, I’ll update this post.

If you don’t intend to get a new Monster Hunter Stories game, don’t worry. As always, Nintendo will usually make these spirits available at a later date.We finally saw something similar to this in March Persona 5 Strikers Also Ghosts’n Goblins Resurrection..

In related news, Kazuya’s arrival at Super Smash Bros. adds new Tekken-themed spirits. You can see what’s included on the patch notes page.

What do you think about this Monster Hunter cross-promotion? Will you get MHS2 at the time of release? Please tell me below.
