Nintendo Details Smash Ultimate 3.0 Update And Joker, Coming 17th April In North America, 18th In UK

In a new video released today, Nintendo unveiled that the new playable fighter Joker from Persona 5, the Mementos stage and several Persona series music tracks will be coming to the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate game for Nintendo Switch on 18th April for players who own the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate: Fighters Pass or purchase Challenger Pack 1: Joker*. In addition to showcasing Joker in action, the video also highlighted the free Version 3.0 update for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate available on 18th April, which will introduce a new Stage Builder feature, new video editing features and the Smash World service for the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app**. To view the video in its entirety, visit the official Nintendo YouTube channel.

After downloading the free Version 3.0 update on 18th April, the following features, among others, will be added to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate:

  • Stage Builder: Players with big ideas for a personalised Super Smash Bros. Ultimate stage can let their creativity run wild with the new Stage Builder mode. By using in-game tools, players can add moving platforms, spinning traps and other unique features to their customised stages. By playing in handheld mode, budding designers can even use the touch screen to freely draw and create, and use front and back layers to decorate their stages further. Designed stages will be available to play in a new tab on the Stage Select screen and can be shared online via the new Smash World service for the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app.**
  • Edit Video: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate video content that has been saved to a Nintendo Switch console can now be spliced together into a fun timeline presentation. Subtitles and sound effects can also be added to personalise the video, which can be exported and shared with the world through the new Smash World service for the Nintendo Switch Online smartphone app.**
  • Smash World: Players can view shared videos and download stages created in Stage Builder to Super Smash Bros. Ultimate in Smash World, a new service in the Nintendo Switch Online app. In Smash World, players can view recommended videos and even download custom stages shared by others online, giving players more ways than ever before to share their Super Smash Bros. Ultimate experience with friends.**

Challenger Pack 1: Joker containing Joker, the Mementos stage and Persona series music can be purchased for £5.39, but players can also purchase the Fighters Pass for a suggested retail price of £22.49, giving them access to Joker and the other upcoming four sets as they release. All content in the Version 3.0 update of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will be available for free.

  1. Maybe Joker will be my second character… I’m starting to believe that Samus is the only character that i can use for competing and that kind of matches, for other stuff i like to use Little Mac… But man, he doesn’t last long in Elite matches.

    1. Little Mac is terrible, I hate him but I’ll admit they really improved him since smash 4. Samus is a good all around character like Mario , I prefer dark Samus’s more floaty qualities tho.

    1. i was watching a reaction video from Tom Fawkes and he thought the witch looks a little bit like Gruntilda

  2. Can’t even express how happy I am that they’ve included Joker’s all-out screen.
    He looks absolutely amazing, he turned out so damn nice. Can’t wait to play him.

  3. DLC is one of the dumbest and most annoying things about modern gaming (it’s only cool to the digital lovers). You pay all that money for a game when it releases. You finally own it. You’re HAPPY! Yet….you still don’t have the complete game because companies keep making DLC and draining even MORE money from people (those who give in, that is). I know it’s a pointless complaint about something that will never stop, but it will forever frustrate me. That’s what I miss about retro gaming. The games remained the way they were when you bought them.

    1. I’m just curious- and there’s nothing wrong with your point of view- but what do/would you think of studios or developers that may have no choice but to offer content as DLC, because of issues such as cut funding or deadlines that can’t be pushed back?

    2. Are seriously implying that smash ultimate with 70+ chars was not complete enough for you?

      These DLC are extra, don’t like em dont buy em, complaining about it only makes you look like a fool.

  4. Smash World? That sounds absolutely amazing. And Joker? Also amazing! He probably won’t be enough to make me stop maining Zelda, but he seems like a lot of fun anyways. Cool!
