Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

As a new weekend dawns upon us, so does a new Spirit Board event within Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — this time themed as “Kong Family Reunion”.

The Donkey Kong-centric event is planned to run all weekend and will include Legend-class Spirits Donkey Kong & Lady, Rambi, and Kaptain K. Rool.

A new software update is now available for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, bringing the title up to Version 2.0.1 and introducing some new bug fixes.

Most notably, this update fixes a bug that impacted a specific challenge surrounding King K. Rool. The full patch notes can be viewed below.

As we heard in the latest Nintendo Direct, Persona 5’s Joker is set to be added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as the game’s first true DLC character by the end of April. As we know, each DLC fighter comes with a new stage and music as well.

What might Joker’s stage be? While there have already been rumors on that front, we may have new evidence as to what’s planned.

Nintendo has announced the next Spirit Board event, this time carrying the theme “Kong Family Reunion”. The fun kicks off on Friday.

During the event, you’ll see more spirits from the Donkey Kong series. If you defeat them, you’ll earn more snacks than you normally would.

The Kong Family Reunion Spirit Board event will be live for three days.

Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai published a new column in this week’s issue of Famitsu. The series recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, so Sakurai had a few words to share such as how it wasn’t always a sure thing that the franchise would continue. He gets pretty reflective here as well as later in the piece when he starts thinking about what lies ahead for his future as a developer. Outside of that, we also get to see a bit of talk about Piranha Plant in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.

We’ve prepared a full translation of Sakurai’s column. Continue on below to read it in full.
