Original: Version 13.0.0 has arrived in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as the game’s last major update. It is beginning to roll out to all consoles worldwide now.

The new update should eventually be downloaded to your system automatically if you’ve been playing recently.

The Smurfs: Mission Vileaf has been delayed. Originally planned for October 25, the game will now release next month. It’s specifically planned for November 5 in Europe, November 16 in North America, and November 20 in Australia / New Zealand. Publisher Microids did not provide a reason for the delay.

The Smurfs: Mission Vileaf will be sold physically and digitally on Switch. Furthermore, a collector’s edition will be available at retail, and it sounds like this will only be offered on Nintendo’s console now.
