Super Smash Bros. Ultimate 9.0.1 Update Coming Today

Nintendo is rolling out a new patch for Super Smash Bros. Ultimate very soon. The game’s 9.0.1 update is scheduled to go live today, October 21, and it appears it’ll include more character tweaks.

Nintendo has not shared patch notes for the new update yet, so it’s not exactly clear what changes are being made to the game. The company only notes that the 9.0.1 update will include “fighter adjustments.” This also means you’ll need to convert any replay data you’ve saved before it’s rendered incompatible with the new version of the game.

Smash Bros. Ultimate’s 9.0 update arrived last week. Along with various balance adjustments, that update introduced the game’s latest DLC character, Steve (and Alex) from Minecraft. The blocky fighter arrived alongside a brand-new stage, as well as a selection of Minecraft Spirits to unlock.

Steve is the second of six additional DLC characters planned for Smash Bros. Ultimate, following Min Min from Arms. Nintendo has not yet revealed the identities of the remaining four fighters. All six characters are included as part of the game’s Fighters Pass Vol. 2, which costs $30 USD. Each DLC fighter can also be purchased individually for $6 USD apiece.

In other news, Nintendo is giving away another Smash Bros. Ultimate freebie for Nintendo Switch Online subscribers. Those with a paid membership can claim the Vault Shopper Set 2 item bundle, which comes with 3,000 Gold and five Classic Tickets.
