The latest patch, version 2.0.0 from Nintendo for its hit game Super Smash Brothers Ultimate takes two steps forward with increased detail in its patch notes, but several steps back thanks to a nasty bug introduced. The fifth installment in the series brings dozens of characters from many different games to the Nintendo Switch. Most notably in the patch, the game added the Piranha Plant to the game, a free DLC character for those who purchase the game through January 31st (physical copies need to register it online). Shortly after the update released, Reddit users on the Smash Bros. subreddit reported having their save files corrupted. The most widespread corruption occurs when playing the new fighter, the Piranha Plant, in the All-Star mode, but it does not seem to occur 100% of the time. There's also a second video from Nintendo below.

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.
