Thehero

It would appear that Nintendo of Europe has accidentally revealed the release date of the upcoming Version 4.0.0 patch for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Going on the game's update history, this would suggest that the release date for the next DLC character, The Hero, has also been revealed ahead of time.

Just hours ago, the US Nintendo Versus Twitter account announced a new video presentation to be hosted by series director Masahiro Sakurai. The presentation will reveal the release date for The Hero, give us more details on the character, and potentially provide more info on the upcoming Version 4.0.0 patch.

Even more recently (just over an hour ago at the time of writing), Nintendo of Europe's official channels also joined in on the action, sharing the same news. This time, however, a secondary tweet - which has since been deleted - appeared to reveal the release date for Version 4.0.0. We managed to grab a screenshot of the tweet below.

Version 2.0.0 introduced Piranha Plant as a playable character, and Version 3.0.0 introduced Joker. We can't confirm that The Hero will launch with Version 4.0.0, but as you can see from past updates, it seems extremely likely.

So, will we be seeing both The Hero and the new version update on 31st July? Share your current hype levels in the comments below.
