Smash Ultimate A Spectacle to Behold Explained – What is The First Spirits Event?

The Smash Bros Ultimate A Spectacle to Behold Spirits Event is going live on December 14 and promises to be the first of many interesting dynamic events for the new Nintendo Switch title in 2018 and beyond. But what is the Smash Ultimate A Spectacle to Behold event and what Spirits can I unlock during the Spirit Event? We’ve explained everything down below, including the A Spectacle to Behold end time, for those looking to get as many Spirits as possible.

What is the Smash Ultimate A Spectacle to Behold Spirit Event?

A limited-time only event that prioritizes a series of specific Spirits, the A Spectacle to Behold Spirit Event sees Spirits that wear glasses or sunglasses now appearing more frequently on the Spirit Board.

Not only that, but beating characters that have the relevant Spirits attached to them will also net you more gold in the process. There’s even a handful of rare Spirits that are popping up at random intervals throughout the 72-hour period, more on which you can see below.
