Recently, a new spirit event was announced by Nintendo with the theme “Spirits in Black” which features Spirits who typically black in color. These include Game & Watch spirits such as Oil Panic and Fire, Raphael from the Yoshi series, the Pokémon Zekrom and Darkrai, Bullet Bill, Infinite from Sonic Forces, and more.
The Lotus will take a break from the Origin System to appear on the #SmashBrosUltimate Spirit Board! Spirits with a black motif will appear in the five-day Spirit event "Spirits in Black", starting on 2/28. Be sure to add the Lotus to your Spirit collection! pic.twitter.com/E9cs3NyMPl— Nintendo Versus (@NintendoVS) February 26, 2020
However, one of the more interesting features in this event is a spirit from an entirely new series. Lotus from the series WARFRAME will be made available in this Spirit Event. WARFRAME is a free-to-play action role-playing third person multiplayer game (that was a mouth full) available on a number of gaming systems including the Switch. It was developed and published by Unreal series co-creator, Digital Extremes. Lotus is one of the main characters who helps guide players within the game by giving them missions, issuing new commands, and alerting the players of enemy activity. Players belong to a faction called Tenno who fight against galactic threats using powerful weaponized armor called Warframes.
Lotus as a Spirit can be enhanced at level 99 and two-star primary Spirit. According to the Japanese Smash Ultimate Twitter, the Spirit Battle for Lotus will feature Bayonetta as the fighter character.
This choice for a Spirit has been met with surprise from many members of both the Smash and WARFRAME community. This five day event is set to start on February 28th so make sure to snag these Spirits including WARFRAME’s Lotus!
Author’s Note: I didn’t even know who and what Lotus and WARFRAME was so this was a great way to introduce me to the series. How about you? What did you think of this event? Are you looking forward to it? What future events do you want to see? Let us know below!
