Version 1.2.0 of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has already arrived. To perform the update manually, access the software update from the Switch HOME Menu. As for what this update actually does - apart from wiping your replays - it's mostly a bunch of technical tweaks. There have also been some adjustments made to particular fighters, but there's no information about what these changes do. Below is the full rundown, courtesy of the in-game notification:
- In Quickplay, the Format set in Preferred Rules is more likely to be factored into matching. This may result in longer wait times when being matched. Note that this does not guarantee that your Preferred Rules will be used when being matched.
- Stability of real-time communication has been improved in Battle Arenas.
- Game balance adjustments, stability fixes and other minor adjustments have been made.
- Individual adjustments and fixes have been made to the fighters listed below:
Donkey Kong, Link, Kirby, Luigi, Ice Climbers, Young Link, Olimar, Toon Link, Villager, Greninja, PAC-MAN, Duck Hunt Duo, Isabelle
Notice on compatibility issues:
- The latest software version is required to enter Online mode.
- Local wireless play is not compatible with Ver. 1.1.0 and earlier. All players who want to fight in local wireless battles need to make sure they have the same software version.
- Replays are not compatible with Ver 1.1.0 and earlier. If you want to keep your replays, convert them into videos before installing the update. You can do this via Vault > Replays > Replay Data > Convert to Video.
For anyone who has played Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee!, their spirits are now also available:
The relevant spirit might appear both on the Spirit Board and in the Shop, so don't miss a chance to grab the same present twice! PS If you haven't played those games, don't worry- we're also planning on making these spirits available at a later date.
