It’s been revealed that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will soon be receiving its latest update. Version 3.1.0 is scheduled to go live, though we don’t have the official confirmation as to when. It seems as though an in-game notice will be appearing tonight, meaning the patch could be distributed in a few hours from now.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate director Masahiro Sakurai recently released a new book in Japan. It’s largely a compilation of columns previously published in Famitsu, along with some extra tidbits. Naturally there was quite a substantial amount of Smash Bros. material in there.

Ayumi Tachibana has rounded up some of the more noteworthy tidbits from the book. He discussed DLC and said that popular characters like Goku are unlikely to happen, stated that there probably won’t be another Smash Bros. Ballot, and more.

Update: Nintendo has posted an update image for the event, shown above. The original version, pictured below, is for next week’s event.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s big 3.0 update has been available for a few weeks now. That means players have access to the new content and features, including Stage Builder. The great thing about the Stage Builder is that anyone can easily create a level, upload it online, and have it played by others right away. Of course, some have received more recognition than others – and the “Yeah!” system also comes in to play, where highly-rated creations will be easier to spot.

Since Stage Builder has been up and running for awhile, we want to know what favorites you’ve come across thus far. Is there a level you’ve made that you’d like to share? Let us know in the comments below.

Super Smash Bros. director Masahiro Sakurai returned to Famitsu this week with one of his regular columns. Some of his recent pieces shied away from Ultimate, but Sakurai wrote about the Switch game again for his latest entry.

Sakurai reflected on the making of Smash Bros. Ultimate’s 3.0.0 update in his latest column. Additionally, he spoke about having to shelve ideas relating to cooperation gameplay as well as the new sharing features in the game.
