Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

A new update is now live for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. It includes Home-Run Contest, support for Banjo-Kazooie DLC, fighter adjustments, and more.

Below are the full patch notes:

Plenty of speculation has been swirling about the next DLC character for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate – in large part due to Nintendo UK listing SNK copyright information on the official page for Challenger Pack 4. Today, the speculation has finally come to an end with Terry Bogard from Fatal Fury being announced.

Terry Bogard will follow Joker, Hero, and Banjo-Kazooie. The character will launch in November.

Nintendo has detailed the latest Spirit Board event in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. If you take down the various targets, you’ll receive the “Shuffle All” item. Additionally, you’ll be granted with three times the amount of SP that you’d normally receive.

The new Spirit Board event starts on August 30. It will last for three days, which is the norm.

It has been confirmed that the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tournament at EVO 2019 peaked at 279,000 online viewers, claiming history as the most viewed event in EVO history. 

The peak viewership occurred as the tournament’s Top 8 finals were held as the “main event” for EVO 2019. 

After a three-day run, MKLeo has won the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate tourney at EVO 2019.

Coming from the Loser’s side of the bracket, Joker-player MKLeo reset the bracket on Tweek’s Pokemon Trainer after being down 2 games to zero, and falling behind by two stocks in Game 4 of the first set. Then, MKLeo went on to win the championship by sweeping the second set in 3-0 fashion.
