A new Spirit Event based on the classic RPG series known as the Trials of Mana is set to start from April 24th and will last for five days. The original Mana game or also called Final Fantasy Adventure, was released in 1991. The Secret of Mana which many western gamers might know of was released on the SNES in 1993. The Trials of Mana is released in 1995 for the SNES and a remake is slated for April 24, 2020. The Mana series is a beloved franchise spanning decades and considered a classic RPG series.
Each Spirit appears to be a paring of two major characters. Those being Angela and Duran (front and center), Kevin and Charlotte (to the right), and Riesz and Hawkeye (to the left). These are the main party members in Trials of Mana who seek to awaken the Mana Tree and save the world from evil forces. The original game is considered a SNES classic which helped get the series remade in HD.
The Japanese Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Twitter also provided some information on Spirits and Spirit Battles.

Their Spirit Battle is against a Green Roy, Zelda, and two Yellow Kirbys on Guar Plains with the item, Ramblin’ Evil Mushroom appearing frequently. This is also a timed battle.

This Spirit Battle is against a Red Sheik and a Mii Swordfighter though it’s unknown what kind of costume will appear. It’s a timed battle on Great Bay where earthquakes are frequent. It also appears that the opponent may use Special Moves should they fall down a lot but I’m not sure what this actually means. Perhaps you can make sense if it so please comment below!
This is the third franchise being repped by Square-Enix (not counting Mallow and Geno) and the first one, if I recall, to feature Spiruts if a yet yo be released game! The remake of Trials of Mans comes to the Switch on April 24th so after unlocking these Spirits; make sure to pick up the game yo get a better feel if the characters!
Author’s Note: I’m psyched to see the Mana series represented. I used to play Secret of Mana back when dinosaurs roamed the Earth. I never played Trials but it’s exciting to see this nonetheless! How do you feel? TLet us know below!
Talking of dinosaurs, I’d like to see a Joe and Mac Spirit Event...
