Nintendo Switch players can now grab themselves an exclusive Super Smash Bros. Ultimate invitation set, and they look even cooler than you might expect.
The fighting game has all sorts of characters already available to play with, such as original Nintendo series fighters like Mario, Donkey Kong, Princess Peach, and others. In addition there are a few crossover players as well, as seen with the latest figure to join the fight, Min Min, from the ARMS video game.
Those who are familiar with the series, however, will be well aware that for these fresh faces to make their way onto the stage, they have to be invited to the action. Now, players can get a hold of this invitation in real life as well, with the classic red wax seal looking better than ever.

As seen below, the set includes not just the envelope itself, but also different watermarked pieces of paper for writing, and three additional wax seals. Each of these have the Smash logo imprinted on them, which is a nice touch.
