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.

Smash Ultimate Envelope set: Price, How to get, more

The collectable offerings were revealed by the Japanese Smash Bros account on July 13, and together its priced at 400 Platinum points. For those who aren’t aware, these are given to players for using various Nintendo services, such as completing My Nintendo missions.

This bundle is only available in Japan as of the time of writing. Some members of the community might see this as a downside, but it could be a sign of the set being made available to all regions in the near future as well.

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.

xQc responds to Hungrybox’s Super Smash Bros challenge

Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has responded to Smash Bros pro Juan ‘Hungrybox’ Debiedma’s challenge of a game after the streamer had a few issues with the iconic Nintendo title. 

Just like plenty of Twitch’s other top streamers, xQc isn’t tied to one game. Sure, his fans would love to see him grinding Overwatch again, but the Canadian likes to dabble in other titles during his streams. 

Most recently, some fans got their wish as the former Overwatch League star decided to have a go at playing Super Smash Bros Ultimate online against other players. However, it didn’t work out all that well for xQc. 

The Canadian streamer let loose on his opponent, the connection, and how “trash” Smash is after a few issues with lag. However, Hungrybox wants to give him a helping hand and get xQc back playing Smash.

Hungrybox is considered one of the “Five Gods” of Smash.

After xQc started playing Smash during his November 27 stream, Hungrybox quickly floated a challenge out on Twitter. “@xQc let’s play smash this week,” he posted, sparking excitement from fans who wanted to see the pair go head-to-head. 

Though, xQc didn’t respond as quickly as some may have liked, taking a few hours to get back to the Smash star. 

When he did, however, he was seeking Hungrybox’s help rather than hitting him with some trash talk about a potential match. “You better teach me how to not get rolled by bottom 1% players,” the former Overwatch star replied. 

Seeing the pair join forces on one stream will, no doubt, delight fans of both – especially if Hungrybox is able to coach xQc up and turn him into a solid Smash player. 

Who knows, we might even see xQc ultimately take on Tyler1 after he managed to impress a number of Smash players with his performance against Hungrybox’s fellow pro MKLeo.
