Smash Ultimate Will Be Patched In Less Than 7 Days - Piranha Plant & Nerfs Are Coming

Owners of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate have received a message from Nintendo: Version 2.0.0 patch is due to be released within the next seven days.

We don't know the exact contents of the patch yet, but we do know that your replay data will be incompatible when the game is patched, so you should convert them to a video if you really want to save any of them.

The timing of the patch seems to suggest that it will finally add Piranha Plant to the game, as Nintendo has said that he is due to arrive in February and seven days time just happens to be February 1st.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is also in dire need of some balancing tweaks, as the online competitive scene is horribly unbalanced in favor of certain characters, most notably Inkling and King K. Rool, which is why you see them all the time when playing Quickplay mode.

The fact that the patch is going to be Ver. 2.0.0 is odd when you consider that the final patch for Super Smash Bros. 3DS/Wii U was Ver. 1.1.7, which added compatibility for the Cloud, Bayonetta, and Corrin amiibos.

It's possible that we may be seeing more content outside of Piranha Plant and balance tweaks. We may see a return for the Home-Run mode, as dataminers had found evidence of the mode when the game was first released.

The baseball bat and the sandbag already exist as items within Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which means that most of the elements of the Home-Run mode are already in place.

It's possible that the developers of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate were up against a harsh Christmas deadline and decided to cut some less-essential modes so that they could be added back in later as free updates.

It's doubtful that we will see any of the other DLC characters added at such an early stage, as Masahiro Sakurai has already claimed that development on Joker has barely started.

We will almost certainly see some new Spirits added to the game, as we have already had a few post-release Spirits in the form of Pikachu and Eevee.

The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate fanbase has been crying out for a balance patch since the game was released and we can only hope that the team delivers when the patch is released within the next week.
