A new minor update launched today for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate with no advance warning from Nintendo. Players immediately began to search frantically throughout the game files to see what it exactly changed in the game.
Would there be more balance changes? New modes? Perhaps more files hidden away of future DLC characters for us to ogle over? Even more information on the next DLC character, Joker, would be enough to tide fans over until his release—but no, nothing like that happened.
In today’s patch, the only new addition is support for the three upcoming amiibo that are set to release later this month. That’s right, the secret patch turned out to be nothing more than flipping a switch to allow the Ken, Daisy, and Pichu amiibo to be accessible with Ultimate when they release in a few days.
Regardless of how bad the update actually is, players will still need to download the latest software to be able to play online or through local wireless play with their friends. At least we don’t need to worry about our replays not working, though.
For those looking for some big upcoming changes to Ultimate, as well as the release of more DLC fighters, it looks like we just need to wait until the release of the massive 3.0.0 update, which is set to bring new modes and content to the game—whenever it releases, that is.
