Weeks after issuing the biggest update in the game so far, Nintendo is moving to issue a follow-up patch for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. On Monday evening, the publisher revealed that Ver 3.1.0 is almost ready to roll out and is set to deploy later in the week.
Ver 3.1.0 of Super #SmashBrosUltimate is coming this week! This update will include fighter adjustments, meaning replay data from previous versions will be incompatible. Convert your replays by going to Vault -> Replays -> Replay Data -> Convert to Video, before updating. pic.twitter.com/3IUqibNCD3— Nintendo Versus (@NintendoVS) May 28, 2019
There are no specifics as to what Ultimate's 3.1.0 update will contain, outside of a vague mention of fighter adjustments. While this may not be as copiously detailed as the recent Version 3.0.0 update, look for a handful of the game's roster to receive a few adjustments in just a couple of days. Shacknews will be back to report on the patch as soon as it's made available.
Version 3.0.0 for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate not only balanced fighters, but it also came with a slew of features. The update included a Stage Builder, Video Editor, and Smash World for the Nintendo Switch Online mobile app. The door also opened up for Persona 5's Joker to join the roster as the game's latest DLC fighter, as well as a slew of Mii Fighter costumes.
As if usually the case with any major update, replay data is about to be outdated. If you have a replay that you're particularly attached to, be sure to enter the game's Vault and select "Convert to Video" for your favorite replay prior to updating the game. If you update the game first, your replay is gone for good, so be careful.
Look for more on Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in the weeks ahead, especially with E3 2019 around the corner. The game's fanbase is widely assuming that E3 will see the game's next DLC fighter get revealed, so stay tuned. At the very least, tune in for a special esports exhibition that's set to take place during the week of the show.
