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.

Update: Nintendo has swapped out the image for the event. Toadsworth is in, Rowlet is out.

Hello, Team Hare and Team Tortoise! This week on NEP, Galen kicks the show off with his EXCELLENT Banjo (Banjo-Kazooie) impression. That sets the mood for the laughing/crying fit we have right after as we joke about how depressing Chocobo’s Mystery Dungeon gets in the late game, including some high-level Final Fantasy lore jokes. We then take a deep dive into Smash 3.0 where Galen gives some thorough impressions and we discuss all of the custom stages Nintendo’s cracking down on; Galen tells his horror story. Afterward, we have some chill Marvel talk because we just got a street date for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3! Then we get serious as we talk rumors from Nikkei about a Switch Mini releasing this autumn, and Oni talks the importance of accurate translations so as not to spread misinformation. And we tidy things up by discussing the growing likelihood of Switch releasing in mainland China, who Tencent is, and international business culture.

We hope you enjoy this episode, because we had a ton of fun recording it! We would appreciate your help in growing the show by sharing the podcast with a friend!
Thanks for listening!
