Super Smash Bros Ultimate 2.0.0 Actually Has Patch Notes

Nintendo has just dropped a major patch for Super Smash Bros Ultimate. It includes Piranha Plant but 2.0.0 actually changes a lot in terms of fighters.

What’s even more surprising is the fact that Nintendo has actually released patch notes for the update (something they don’t generally do for Smash).

We’ve included the major notes below but there’s also a complete list of fighter changes right here.


You can now play Spirit Board with up to four players.
Select the Spirit you want to challenge on the Spirit Board, and then go to Party Fighter to select the number of people who will play. When playing with multiple people, you will lose the battle if any player is KO’d.

  • Partner Eevee
  • Dice Block
  • River Survival
  • Golden Dash Mushroom
