Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

A new update has arrived for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, bringing the version number up to 6.1.0. This update fixes a rare occurrence where Terry Bogard’s Super Special Move “Buster Wolf” connects with another fighter and caused both Terry and the opposing fighter to be unable to move. You can see a screenshot of the patch details below:

To celebrate the launch of Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is hosting a special tournament. Naturally, the theme is all about Pokemon. The fighters and stages will be limited to that franchise as a result.

The new Smash Bros. tournament kicks off on November 15. It will last for three days.


As noted during Nintendo’s latest financial results, the company’s digital sales continue to rise. Those sales went up even further this past fiscal year, which prompted one attendee during the Q&A session of the Big N’s investor briefing to ask about any specific changes to the numbers.

Nintendo president Shuntaro Furukawa pointed out a few things. For one thing, gamers are continuing to be interested in owning titles digitally as opposed to physically. Additionally, sales growth of download-only software is increasing, add-on content sales are up, and revenue is coming in from Nintendo Switch Online. Furukawa also highlighted the Fighters Pass for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which “has made a huge contribution.”

Furukawa said:

Hello, my Norman Reeduses and Freaky Fetuses! This week on NEP, we celebrate Terry Bogard’s debut in Smash with lots of creativity flowing; we muse on ideas for licensed anime games like Food Wars Shokugeki no Soma, Trigun, Sailor Moon… We also kick the show off with some chat about general media—I promise there’s structure to this show. Galen talks his captivation with Luigi’s Mansion 3, Oni Dino is charmed by Destiny Connect, and general banter continues. “C’mon!”
