It's not the news we were expecting, but we sure are grateful for it nonetheless. Yes, Home Run Contest is coming back to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

The mode, which was available in all previous Smash Bros. games other than the original release on N64, has players beating up the Sandbag as much as possible before sending it flying to set a highscore. It'll be added to the game as part of Version 5.0, which launches later today.

That's not all, though. In case you missed the news earlier, today's update will also add Banjo and Kazooie as playable characters, and even more characters than we initially expected will be headed to the game as future DLC.

Today's Direct was pretty amazing all-round, but Smash fans have plenty to shout about yet again. Amazing.
