Super Smash Bros Ultimate Patch 2.0.0 Adds Piranha Plant; Reports Suggest Using The Fighter Could Corrupt Save Game
Nintendo has released Super Smash Bros Ultimate patch 2.0.0 for the Nintendo Switch which adds Piranha Plant to the game alongside various changes and fighter adjustments.
While the new update allows select players to pick Piranha Plant as fighter, various users are reporting that using the new fighter in All-Star Mode could corrupt your save game. In addition, various other players are reporting that Duck Hunt and/or Mii Swordfighter is also corrupting save data in Century Smash. It is suggested to avoid using those characters in All-Star Mode and Century Smash until Nintendo releases a patch to fix these issues.
Aside from the issues mentioned above, the new patch also allows players to play Spirit Board with up to 4 players and new spirits have been added to the shop, including Partner Pikachu, Partner Eevee, Dice Block, River Survival and Golden Dash Mushroom.
In addition, Super Smash Bros Ultimate patch 2.0.0 adjusts the calculation for Global Smash Power and offers various game-balance adjustments alongside fixes and character tweaks. We’ve included the official release notes down below:
