KEY POINTS

  • Bonuses are coming for "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate" players with Nintendo Switch Online subscriptions
  • Aside from access to classic NES and SNES titles, the subscription service has other perks
  • The Vault Shopper Set 2 includes 3,000 Gold and five Classic Tickets

Players of “Super Smash Bros’ Ultimate” with a Nintendo Switch Online subscription are getting a special bonus that they can use to tap into some hidden rewards.

After releasing the Vault Shopper Set for “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” in July 2019, Nintendo is now offering Vault Shopper Set 2 for free for Nintendo Switch Online users.

What does the latest bonus offer? According to Nintendo Everything, this perk includes an additional bonus of 3,000 Gold and five Classic Tickets.

But the Gold and Classic Tickets are not mere giveaways as Screen Rant pointed out that these can be used to unlock extra content in “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate” and to snag better rewards from matches.

Players can find the bonus in the Nintendo Switch eShop's Nintendo Switch Online section, under “Special Offers.”

Aside from the Vault Shopper Set 2 bonus, Nintendo Switch Online also opened a multiplayer option for free-to-download releases “Super Mario Bros. 35” and “Tetris 99” following the addition of “Donkey Kong Country 2” in September.

“Race against time, defeat enemies, and sabotage your opponents in an online battle to be the last Mario standing,” a description of “Super Mario Bros. 35” on the Nintendo website reads. “Each player is given the same timed stage, but you must defeat enemies to earn extra time and attack your opponents. Don’t forget to pick up some coins on your way—they can be used to get in-game items like power-ups.”

After the announcement of the addition of Steve from “Minecraft” as the next DLC fighter for “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate,” the roster of playable characters has already grown to more than 80 with no signs of slowing down. Thus, the timing of Vault Shopper Set 2 is fortuitous for those already enjoying the title.

 With the Xbox France account fanning the flames of Master Chief from the “Halo” series being added as yet another DLC, chances are high that Steve won’t be the last fighter joining “Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.”
