Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Nintendo has announced the latest Smash Bros. Ultimate Spirit Board event. This week, the theme is “The Right Staff” where staff-wielding spirits will be appearing. Take them down to earn more SP than usual.

The Spirit Board event should kick off on Friday. Like past events, look for it to last a few days.


Super Smash Bros. Ultimate appears to be getting a major new mode. Although it technically hasn’t been announced, it seems that Nintendo itself has leaked a feature coming to the game.

Update: Second commercial added for Tetris 99, Fitness Boxing, and Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

Original: Nintendo has shared the latest “Nintendo Switch My Way” commercial, this time for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. View the advert below.

Last year, Yakuza producer Daisuke Sato was asked about the possibility of having the franchise appear on Switch. Sato didn’t seem too enthusiastic about the possibility at the time. Unfortunately, series producer Toshihiro Nagoshi has issued a similar sentiment, telling IGN Japan that ports haven’t been considered for now.

You also probably won’t be seeing Kazuma Kiryu and Goro Majima in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Nagoshi joked around and said that director Masahiro Sakurai perhaps would not want them.

Sonic is one SEGA character you can play as in Smash Bros. SEGA also owns Atlus, and Joker from Persona 5 will soon be added to the roster as DLC as well.

The Famitsu Award 2018 ceremony was held tonight in Japan, and it was filled with plenty of Nintendo-related winners. The big news is that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate won Game of the Year alongside Monster Hunter: World. Masahiro Sakurai, who directed the game, also secured an “MVP” award.

Here’s the full lineup of winners:

Back in January, Taiwan gaming website Bahamut conducted an interview with Atlus’ Naoto Hiraoka. That discussion was now published online today.

During the interview, Hiraoka was asked about Joker appearing in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the possibility of Persona 5 for Switch, and the latest on Shin Megami Tensei V. You can find a rough translation of his comments below.

As first discovered earlier today, Nintendo has updated Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Version 2.0.2 is out now.

According to an in-game notice, support has been added for the Daisy, Young Link, and Ken amiibo figures. You’ll need the patch in order to participate in online play. Replay compatibility is supported with version 2.0.1 and version 2.0.0, but not 1.2.1 and earlier.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate players are all waiting for the 3.0.0 update. This was announced during the last Nintendo Direct, but has yet to be properly detailed. We do know it’ll be out sometime this spring.

Before that big update, a smaller patch will be issued. It’s been confirmed that Nintendo will be sending out version 2.0.2 tonight. No word yet on what’s included, but we’ll let you know when we have further information.


Persona 5’s Joker will be added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as the game’s first DLC pack character within the next month. Despite that, we’ve yet to get a full look at him. Nintendo hasn’t shown a single screenshot of Joker or even a look at his render.

Now fans think that Best Buy may have provided a first look. In the retailer’s latest ad, the image above is included. That does look like a possible render and could be a look at how Joker will be released in amiibo form.

In any case, Joker is coming to Smash Bros. Ultimate very soon. Let’s hope that Nintendo will be sending out assets not too long from now.
