The game's creative director, Masahiro Sakurai, said in a recent Famitsu magazine column translated by Nintendo Everything, "Now that Ultimate is out, the online matchmaking system is not working well? I have my own suspicion, so I'm going to investigate it I would like to make adjustments where possible to fix it where it is necessary to fix it. "
In so many words, it sounds like more updates to the game may come.
But what we know is that "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate" gets even more characters in its already robust list.
Piranha Plant, by "Super Mario Bros." fame, joins the roster – giving the total playable character to a large 75.
It does not count the addition of the Joker from the Persona series, which is scheduled to come to a time in 201
So far, five total fighters are added to "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate" as extra content. The sum of playable characters will hit 80 when all the extra characters are available (including Piranha Plant).
There are no dates for new warriors yet, but the company says they will all be available before February 2020.
Nintendo sells a "Fighter's Pass" that provides access to all five of the upcoming downloadable the signs for $ 24.99. Piranha Plant is free if you buy "Super Smash Bros. Ultimate" by January 31, 2019, and will otherwise cost the same $ 5.99 as any other individual downloadable character.
