Smash Ultimate: Fire Emblem Fest – Part 1

A rather special event is coming to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate on Switch within the next few days: Fire Emblem Fest!

Spirits from the Fire Emblem series of games will show up on the game’s Spirit Board far more frequently, starting from the 21st of December 06:00AM UTC, up until the 24th of December 06:00AM UTC.

In Part 1, Legend-class Caeda and Azura, as well as Ace-class Eliwood and Eirika, will be set to appear at least twice a day at specific times throughout the event! Click “Read more” to view the information.

  • Caeda – Legend (4-star) – 6:00AM, 6:00PM UTC
  • Eirika – Ace (3-star) – 9:00AM, 9:00PM UTC
  • Azura – Legend (3-star) – 12:00AM, 12:00PM UTC
  • Eliwood – Ace (3-star) – 3:00AM, 3:00PM UTC

Remember that Spirits ranked Ace and below swap out every 5 minutes, with Legend ranks lasting 15 minutes. Check in on the Spirit Board at the times above, because after their time’s up, they will be gone until their next scheduled appearance or until their next random appearance.

The following list of Spirits will also show up more frequently on the board at any time throughout the event, so check back frequently to the Spirit Board if you want to pad out your Fire Emblem Spirits collection!

  • Azura
  • Caeda
  • Eirika
  • Eliwood
  • Leif (Fire Emblem)
  • Lyon
  • Nino
  • Karel
  • Ninian
  • Lilina
  • Seliph
  • Deirdre
  • Sigurd

  • Linde
  • Minerva
  • Navarre
  • Jagen
  • Julius
  • Alm & Celica (Young)
  • Gharnef
  • Merric
  • Wrys
  • Draug

Side note: To completely unlock a Spirit, you must first defeat the character they possess in battle, then you must successfully time a shot at the character through the gaps of a rotating shield. Failing to shoot through the shield just means that there will be less shield to hit on your next encounter, so there’s no pressure to get it right first try.

The notification also states that there is a Fire Emblem Fest – Part 2 planned for “next month.”

That’s basically it. Happy smashing!

    Time for me to complete my FE spirits collection.

  • Actually, Raven, as a Legend Class Spirit, Caeda and Azura will stay around for about 15 Minutes if memory serves.

      I actually knew this but failed to include the information, thanks for the heads up.

    Wait, Zelgius is a spirit in the game, but he doesn’t fall under this promotion? That’d be quite odd. Just picked him up and had to warn a friend who still hasn’t played Radiant Dawn that he might get a big reveal spoiled by Smash, of all games.

      Don’t worry, there will be a Part 2 “next month.” Chances are, any missing characters this month will be included in part 2.

    Too bad I already have every FE spirit except for RD Ike and female Corrin. Btw, does anyone know how I get these 2? Playing Corrin’s classic mode again didn’t help.
