If you’re a fan of crossovers, then you’ll be excited to hear this one. Nintendo’s famous fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be adding three spirits from Paper Mario: The Origami King to the game.
The official Japanese Twitter account for Smash Bros. revealed that the spirits will be Origami Peach, Mario’s helper named Olivia, and Olly who is the villain of the game. The tweet also states that they will be available from August 28, 2020 through September 1, 2020.

This isn’t the first time that Super Mario Bros. Ultimate added spirits from different games, though. It added spirits from Trials of Mana and Cuphead, among other games. Although, most of the time, these are only limited-time events.
On a related note, there was a new, free stage for the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate recently included in the 8.1.0 update. You can also expect five more DLC fighters, but more information regarding these characters are yet to be revealed.
If you want to nab these Paper Mario: The Origami King spirits, don’t forget to mark your calendars for Friday.
