A small update has just gone live for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Nintendo has released version 11.0.1, and it can be downloaded by all players.

According to Nintendo, the update only addresses a single issue. The patch notes state: “Vulnerability when landing after using the Wii Fit Trainer’s side special Header had decreased unintentionally, so this has been adjusted.”

And that’s it. While it may not be a big update by any means, it’s probably worth downloading. The next major version change will likely arrive when the latest DLC character is ready, which is likely at least a couple of months away given that Pyra/Mythra was just added this month.

Last week, Pyra/Mythra was added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as the latest DLC character. The two-in-one fighter is the new representative from Xenoblade Chronicles 2 instead of Rex, who has the starring role.

You may recall that Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai talked about the decision to feature Pyra/Mythra over Rex a bit during a presentation from earlier in the month. In his latest column in Famitsu though, he went into a bit of extra detail about the thought process behind it all.

We’ve now gone ahead and prepared a complete translation of Sakurai’s piece from the Japanese magazine. Continue on below to read it in full.

Have you played Persona 5 Strikers or Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection on your Switch? If so, you’re eligible to receive new spirits in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

Those that have save data for Persona 5 Strikers will receive a spirit for Sophia. For Ghosts ‘n Goblins Resurrection, Arthur is the bonus.

Both of these spirits may appear for all players at a later date, though there’s no word on that just yet.

Nintendo has now published the full patch notes for version 11.0.0. Continue on below to read them in full.
