Super Smash Bros. Ultimate To Receive "Final Fighter Adjustment"

The fighter roster in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate may be complete, but the game isn't over just yet. Nintendo announced that a new update is on the way and it will come in the form of a patch that will give final fighter adjustments.

According to Nintendo's official social media accounts like Nintendo Versus, the company's official Twitter account for competitive games, as well as the announcement within Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, the Version 13.0.1 update is coming soon. The release date for the new update has not been announced as November 29, 2021. The main thing to note is that it will render replay data from previous updates incompatible.

Since your replay data won't be available after the patch becomes active, you might want to convert all the replays you want to keep into video clips for future reference or to share them on social media. Sadly, the converted battle videos won't be saved onto your Nintendo Switch album.

The Version 13.0.1 update is the last patch that will tweak existing fighters, but it's not the final update to the game itself. This process started with the Version 1.0.2 update that launched on December 13, 2018 — nearly a week after the release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate — with Donkey Kong, Ice Climbers, Link, Young Link, Kirby, Luigi, Olimar, Toon Link, Villager, Greninja, Pac-Man, Duck Hunt, and Isabelle being the first fighters to receive the patch.

The previous update, Version 13.0.0, added Sora from Kingdom Hearts to the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate roster as the final DLC fighter and the final Smash Bros. fighter in the series, confirming the predictions and speculations of Kingdom Hearts and Smash Bros. fans alike all over the internet. Masahiro Sakurai wrote in his Famitsu column that Sora's inclusion in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate happened after a chance meeting with a Disney representative at the Tokyo Game Show in 2019.

Earlier this month, Sakurai said that he was uncertain about the future of the Super Smash Bros. series, admitting that the series wouldn't continue without him. While he previously hinted that Super Smash Bros. Ultimate may be the last game in the series, he said that he can't say that's necessarily the case.
