Last week, Nintendo revealed its new DLC fighter Byleth for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. At the time, Masahiro Sakurai explained how the latest addition to the roster would take a little more time to prepare and wouldn't be available until 28th January.

Now, in a small update over on Twitter, the Nintendo Versus account has reminded fans the Version 7.0 will be arriving within a week. It's expected to include fighter adjustments, and as usual, replay data from previous versions will no longer be compatible.

Byleth will be followed by another six fighters. There'll even be a new pass called the 'Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Fighters Pass Vol. 2' made available for pre-purchase on 28th January that comes with the Breath of the Wild Ancient Soldier costume (for the Mii Fighter).
