The next big update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is coming very soon, and so is the next DLC character, Hero from Dragon Quest. Masahiro Sakurai will be showing off the Hero in a special video tomorrow.

It seems like that’ll be the case, as Nintendo of Europe might have accidentally revealed the release date of 4.0.0. In a tweet this morning, they said that version 4.0.0 would be released on July 31, this Wednesday. The tweet has since been deleted and replaced with one that omits the date, but Twitter user @Chocobalt managed to take a screenshot of the original:

While this isn’t 100% confirmed yet, it seems very likely that version 4.0.0 will be available on the 31st.


Super Smash Bros. Ultimate’s next update is coming soon. Version 4.0.0 goes live within the next week, Nintendo announced as part of an in-game notice.
