Nintendo “has not been able to confirm that there is an issue” with Piranha Plant in Smash Bros. Ultimate

Last week, Piranha Plant was added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a new playable character. It can be used in all sorts of game modes and isn’t just limited to regular battles. But soon after the character was made available, reports started to surface that using Piranha Plant in All-Star mode could corrupt save data.

Newsweek has now obtained an official statement, and Nintendo says it “has not been able to confirm that there is an issue”. The full comment reads:

“We are aware that some users are posting about possible issues with the latest Super Smash Bros. Ultimate update. After extensive testing, Nintendo has not been able to confirm that there is an issue, although we will continue to investigate and monitor the situation.”

Following last week’s update, some players also reported issues with Mii Swordfighter and Duck Hunt in Century Smash, but it sounds like Nintendo hasn’t seen any issues with them either. Could the recent problems only be limited to a very small amount of users?
