Super Smash Bros Ultimate Update 10.1.0 is Available Now

Super Smash Bros Ultimate Update 10.1.0 has been released for the Nintendo Switch, adding support for the new Sephiroth Challenger Pack.

We already wrote about the new update earlier this week, and while Sephiroth could already be unlocked, the new update allows everyone to unlock the iconic FFVII villain once it has been purchased. Aside from adding support for the new challenger pack, the new update introduces new Final Fantasy VII spirits and support for additional outfits from the RPG.
