A new Super Smash Bros Ultimate update is on the way, and it will be released within the next few days.

The 6.1.0 update will be released very soon. It's not yet clear what will be included in the update, but it's been pretty much confirmed that it will include balance changes, as players are advised to save their replays as videos since they won't be compatible with the new version. This only happens when an update includes balance changes.
