Super Smash Bros. Ultimate v3.0 Update Adds Stage Builder, Mii Fighters, And More (VIDEO)
Going live today, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has added Joker from the Persona series to their ever-expanding roster, providing yet another distinct fighter for players to master. In addition to this Persona 5 collaboration, Super Super Smash Bros. Ultimate has also detailed their big v3.0 update, it adding several new modes and pieces of content to the multi-featured brawler.
First up are the new Mii fighters, the new update introducing a total six new costume varieties to those with the means to purchase them. Going live as the “Extra Mii Fighter Costumes – Round 1” DLC pack, new cosmetics are set to be introduced, including full costumes based on Tails and Knuckles from the Sonic franchise. On the Persona side of things, hats based on characters Morgana and Teddie are on the way, along with Swordfighter skins based on the protagonists from Persona 3 & 4.
As seen in the above video, the big highlight of this new content update is the previously speculated Stage Builder mode, which gives creatively-inclined players the ability to craft their own arena. Additionally on deck are the nifty new Video Editor and Smash World modes, the former allowing users to compile their match highlights and the latter being the platform which players can share their videos and custom-built stages with the world. An official rundown of these new modes (via Business Wire) can be viewed below.
- Stage Builder: Players with big ideas for a personalized 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 customized 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 further decorate their stages. 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 app.
- Video Editor: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate video content that has been saved to a Nintendo Switch system can now be spliced together into a fun timeline presentation. Subtitles and sound effects can also be added to personalize the video, which can be exported and shared with the world through the new Smash World service for the Nintendo Switch Online 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.
